Obituary for Eloise Saarloos

Worthington, MN

Eloise Saarloos, age 60, died on Sunday, October 30, 2016, at her residence in Worthington, MN.
She was born on October 30, 1956, in Rock Rapids, IA, the daughter of Elmer and Emma (Hooyer) Saarloos. She grew up on a farm by Ellsworth, MN, and then later on a farm near Luverne, MN. Eloise attended school in Luverne graduating in 1977. She later moved to Worthington, where she worked at Campbell’s Soup for 19 years and then worked at various jobs until she passed away. Over the years, she enjoyed fishing, bowling, singing, including singing solos at church, Vikings and Twins games, doing latch hook projects, and most of all, spending time with Doug Schafer, her fiancé.
Eloise loved life, which included her family, especially being an aunt, and her friends. Eloise felt her day was blessed if everyone she met that day returned the smile she always had with a hello.
Eloise is survived by her fiancé, Doug Schafer; three brothers, John (Sue) Saarloos of Brandon, SD, Robert (Joyce) Saarloos of Norwood Young America, MN, and Calvin (Betty) Saarloos of Luverne, MN; sister, Laura (Keith) Woodley of Luverne, MN; thirteen nieces and nephews, Sara (Chad) Eischens of Norwood Young America, MN, Matthew (Kari) Saarloos of E Bethel, MN, Kjerstee (Ryan) Miller of Minnetonka, MN, Jesse (Natilee) Woodley of Luverne, MN, Jennifer Saarloos of Sioux Falls, SD, Kyle (Nicole) Woodley of Coon Rapids, MN, Jeremiah (Michelle) Saarloos of Luverne, MN, Caleb Saarloos of Luverne, MN, Eric Woodley of Luverne, MN, Lucas Saarloos of Luverne, MN, Megan Saarloos of Luverne, MN, Kelly (David) Anderson of Brandon, SD, and Aaron Pokett of Brandon, SD, and seventeen grand nieces and nephews, Ava, Jonathan, Emma, Kassidy and William Saarloos, Cole and Lilly Miller, Quinn and Kiera Eischens, Elijah, Gracyn, Hannah, Emmett and Felicity Woodley, Ethan and Wyatt Anderson, and Aiden Pokett.
She was preceded in death by her parents and one nephew, Chad Saarloos.
