In Loving Memory of Eloise Hause.....108 Great Years!

 

In Loving Memory of Eloise Hause.....108 Great Years!

 

Today my double first cousin twice removed passed away.  I wrote about visiting her last summer, when she was still living in her home in Hartford, Alabama.  She celebrated her 108th birthday December 29th, 2009.

 

 

Eloise Hause

 

 

Eloise was an amazing lady, full of personality and mischief even in her advanced age.  She lived longer than all her siblings and cousins (with the exception of her cousin Nina who is still living), remaining in her own home until just a few months ago.  I'm not sure exactly when it was that she agreed to allow someone to stay with her at her house, but only a few years ago she was still piddling around in her yard which she loved!

 

 

 

 

 

Eloise and my grandmother, Lillian, were double first cousins, each were the first born children of their parents.  Their fathers were brothers (Hardwicks) who married sisters (Corbitts).  Eloise and my grandmother, and their siblings grew up together, their families lived in homes next to each other on family farmland in Geneva County, eventually moving to town.....Hartford, where they raised the next generation of kids, including my mom.

 

Eloise was the oldest of all the kids, but many of them lived into their 90s......my grandmother was 93 when she died in 1998.  We have great genes in our family!

 

Rest in peace Ella!
