Eloise McMillan 93 of Kalispell was born on June 23, 1923 in DeKalb, Illinois to William and Hilda Price, the eldest of three children. She met the love of her life, George McMillan at the age of 28 while rollerskating with her friend. They were married shortly thereafter and raised a family of five children, Patricia, Cathy, Vance, Bryan and Wesley. Her family remembers Eloise as a joyful loving mother, full of kindness, gentleness, selflessness, sweetness, love and light who always offered her children a soft place to land and was always more concerned about everyone else’s needs over her own. They remember a childhood of camping trips, Halloweens with creative hand made costumes, Sunday drives which ended with treats of ice cream cones, Christmases with tinsel filled trees and home made divinity and the world’s best apple, huckleberry, blueberry, and strawberry pies and chocolate cakes. Eloise and George followed their dreams to begin a new chapter of their lives in Kalispell, Montana where they built their own home on a parcel of 66 acres of land. Eloise was employed as a secretary at Diamond Wire, Anaconda Copper Company, Glacier National Park, Bank of Columbia Falls and the Welfare Office over the years.
Eloise is survived by daughters Patricia Bremberg, Cathy McKinney, and sons Vance McMillan, Bryan (Cindy) McMillan, Wesley McMillan, 10 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandchildren. She is predeceased by her parents, brother, husband George, two daughters-in-law, and one son-in-law.
