The memories held of Ms. Eloise are too vast to recall! What a saint she was: her prayers for my family on a daily basis, her genuine heart of compassion and concern for all, even those she barely knew, her kindness and concern for all who knew her and last but not least that homemade with love banana bread! Our earthly loss is Heavens great gain! Praying for all the Medders family!

Many wonderful memories of good food and fellowship on the screened-in porch of Miss Eloise and Mama Medders. What we would do for a "Coca Cola"!!! The Community will miss her and her prayers. God Bless the Medders Family. Rachel Vernon Kirschbaum

My first Sunday School teacher. I will miss the everyday prayers of this saint. She was a wonderful lady who cared so much for everyone.
