Eloise was welcomed into this world on February 18, 1954 in Beach, ND by her parents Clifford and Lenore (Hartse) Beach. She joined a growing family as she was the fifth child of seven. Eloise and her family lived in Ollie, MT where she attended country school until 1965 when they moved to Carter County. She continued her schooling at Ekalaka Elementary School then graduated from Carter County High School in 1972. After graduation Eloise decided to move to Miles City and went to June’s Beauty School. For a short time she moved home to help with the farm before deciding to head east to Minneapolis, MN. In 1973, following the passing of her dad, Eloise made the decision to move home and Ekalaka remained her home until her passing.
Eloise never had enough time in the day to do all she enjoyed. The farm and the animals brought her great joy. Chickens being her favorite and being able to make sure everyone had eggs was very important to her. Eloise enjoyed her work with the cows and took great care of any bum calves. Loving her family she helped raise her nieces and nephews. Each received a crochet blanket and countless homemade cookies. Her hands were never idle as she loved to crochet and made doilies. Company was always welcome and greeted with her delicious baked goods. Eloise loved good music, writing and always had her camera close by taking pictures.
Eloise will be missed by her mother, Lenore; brothers, Babe LeGene Beach, Arley Lewis Beach, Keith Elerey Beach, Bradley Lawrence Beach,Wayne Loyal Beach; numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Clifford Beach; sister, Jan.
