My deepest sympathy in the passing of your mother. I have found memories of your parents and family while in Evergreen Park.
With sorrow and blessings,

My Aunt Eloise was one of those women who seemed to never age. She always looked great, a classic beautiful woman, her appearance always pleasant, always well dressed, capped off with a smile that never faded, but rather, grew into a “giggle” that could light up a room.

Years would go by, and everyone would seem to change, but not Aunt Eloise. Aunt El spoke softly, and drew attention by her calm demeanor, and her interest and love for her family.

My Aunt Eloise would always love to share stories about her children and grandchildren, all of whom were loved, and cherished. She loved all of them, as they were the focus of her life, along with her loving husband, Jack.

My “Uncle Jack” struck it “rich’ when he met, and later married Eloise. My Aunt Eloise had the patience of a Saint, and the heart of a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, neighbor, and friend. Aunt Eloise was there for her family, and her family, there for her.

I was her nephew, and I still remember staying over, actually “sleeping over” with my brother Dave. We both looked up to Cousin Mike, because Mike was big, and we were small, so if you are small, you have no other choice that to look up to people.

Mike, was a favorite cousin, as were Sue, Mary, Sally, Jo Jo, sorry, Jo Anne, and Jill.

I loved sleeping in their big “screened in porch,” and in the morning, Aunt Eloise was there cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner for us, and her family. Uncle Jack would come home, come up from the basement, said “prayers,” or “grace,” and we laugh and shared stories.

And if you know the Yerkes Family, we have a lot, I mean, a real lot of stories to tell. Days that begin and end with God, Prayer, Family, and Friends, is a good day.

And I have to say, that knowing Aunt Eloise and Uncle Jack, their honeymoon in Heaven started the Day that the Lord decided that Uncle Jack waited long enough for his beautiful bride to come home, and be with him once more.

Love you Always Aunt Eloise and Uncle Jack,
Your Nephew,

Carol Yonan (Marylou's daughter)

I loved Kenny's condolence, he really captured the true essence of Aunty Eloise. It's true Aunty Eloise always reminded me of Jackie Kennedy, I always remembered her style, elegance and grace. Our Deepest Sympathy to the Family. Love, Nick, Carol, Lauren and Blake Yonan

(part of a poem by Doris A. Orth)

If you haven't let God in -
Please open wide your door;
And you will find love and peace
Like you've never known before.

So take His hand, and His sweet song
Will fill your empty heart;
And you'll find yourself saying,
"Oh, God, how great Thou art!"
