Elouise Frances (Lindeman) Jarvis

January 05, 1925 ‒ February 11, 2018

Butler, Ohio

BUTLER:  Elouise Frances (Lindeman) Jarvis went to be with the Lord Sunday, February 11, 2018 at Ohio Health Mansfield Hospital surrounded by her family.  She was 93.

Elouise was born January 5, 1925, the second child of Harry & Silva Mae (Parker) Lindeman in Danville, Ohio

Elouise attended St. Vincent High School in Mt. Vernon and later graduated from Mansfield Beauty College in 1972.  She received her Teaching Instructors license in 1973 and taught until 1983 at the Beauty College.  Elouise started the JEM Beauty Salon in Butler in 1984 and then opened the shop behind her home in 1997.   She continued her work there until the present time, maintaining her closest clients.

On April 27, 1946 she married Merle Jarvis with whom she celebrated 71 years together.

The couple made their home in Butler, where they currently reside.

Strong in faith, Elouise and Merle were baptized (in the lake behind their home) in 1968 and became faithful members of the Bunker Hill Baptist Church. Elouise has been a faithful Sunday School Teacher and they both continue to be Teen & Golden Ager Leaders and workers in many areas of the church.  In 2001 she had a 6 by-pass open heart surgery.  Before given the anesthetic she told the Doctor “The Lord is on this table with me and don’t you knock Him off”!  She continued to be a testimony and witness for her Lord.

Elouise has always been a caring neighbor and loved to cook, not only for her family but the entire community and was well known for her delicious pies.  For many years she has served as a caregiver to several elderly, often keeping in their own home.

Her favorite time of year was Christmas decorating their house and yard with many various scenes and lights, having won 1st place and honorable mention many times in the community decorating contest.

Merle & Elouise loved to travel.  They enjoyed 4 wheeling and love to snowmobile in Michigan and Canada. The family joke is that they will be busy traveling and visiting their children in the nursing home in years to come.

In addition to her husband, Elouise has three children Sharon (Fred) Reamsnider of Springfield, MO; John (Deceased) (Vickie) of Butler, and Sheila (Jack) Stewart of Butler; grandchildren Michelle (Ashley) Ellison, Michael (Kimmie) Reamsnider, Shennon (Tony) Weirich,  Melissa (Tom) Breneman, Karmel Jarvis, Jonathan Jarvis, Kayla (Andy) John;  great grandchildren Ashlyn (Joshua) Gunter, Tristyn (Kenan) Sims, Taylor & Hunter Weirich, Mackenzie & Trevor Breneman, Michael Chillemi, and Lexi John; great great granddaughter Adelyn Gunter.

She was preceded in death by siblings Fred, John, Ann (Horne) and Edward.

The Jarvis family will receive friends Friday, February 16, 2018 from 4-8 pm in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where the funeral service will be held Saturday at 10 am.  Pastor “CB” Gomez will officiate.  Burial will follow in Bunker Hill Cemetery.

Memorial contributions in honor of Elouise may be made to the Missions Program at Bunker Hill Baptist Church.

  • My heart is breaking hearing of the passing of Elouise. What a beautiful soul she was. She was my church bus driver when I was a little girl and I was baptised in the lake behind her house by Pastor Trader of Bunkerhill Baptist Church, she also helped with all the needs of my wedding that was also at Bunkerhill years later. Elouise never knew a stranger and always showed her love for the Lord and proudly shared that love to anyone that would listen. Heaven has surely gained another angel, My condolences to her family and prayers that Gods loving mercy will follow you in your grief today and in the days to come.

    • Thank you so much for sharing! I’m so proud that she cared and loved for so many people! Thank you ❤️

Staying with them in their beautiful home, and enjoying her cooking in our hearts forever. We will miss her greatly. She’s with Jesus now. She’s home. We will see her again in Glory.

    • Bless your hearts. Thanks for sharing how much these two meant to you both. Hope to see you this summer.

  • Louise was a wonderful, caring person. She was so full of energy. I went to church at Bunkerhill as a teen and she drove the church bus. It was some of the best times of my childhood. I was baptized. In the lake behind her house. She was a blessing. God bless all of her family and friends.Prayers…

  • We are so very sorry for your loss. We look forward to the fulfillment of every detail of God’s promise in Revelation 21:4, which says: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
