Elouise Frances (Lindeman) Jarvis
January 05, 1925 ‒ February 11, 2018
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.
