She was preceded in death by a brother, Fred Rucker and a son-in-law, Denny Joliff.

She was a member of Grace United Methodist Church, Fortnightly Club, Wyandot County Retired Teachers and Friends of The Library.

Elouise was so cherished by her family. She will be missed but we know she has arrived in Heaven, a peaceful place where she will be embraced by all the family (Doug) and friends she has ever known. We miss you already. Miss your laughter and positive attitude of life.
Mrs. Myers was my 3rd grade teacher at West end when we first moved to Carey. She was so sweet to this southern accented, nervous little girl. I loved her so much! Now reading her obit and discovering she was raised within a mile of where I sit in my office, I know why! Either you survive and thrive from the Hilltop or it beats you down, she obviously thrived! I am so happy I was able to see her 2-3 times in the last couple years while visiting up home at the Vanlue restaurant on Sunday afternoons. What a gem throughout her entire life.
