Eloise Love honored at Fairlawn Haven 2012.09.26

Written by David Green.

A former Fayette resident was honored as the Fairlawn Haven Resident of the Month for October.

Eloise Love was born Dec. 20, 1912, to Fredrick and Frieda Schang. She was the oldest of eight children.  Eloise grew up in the Fayette area and went through the eigth grade at East Franklin School. She met and married Jack Love and they were married on June 26, 1935, in Columbia City, Ind.  

She and Jack lived in Fayette for 71 years and operated a gas station. Eloise enjoyed some traveling but always wanted to come home for the night. The daughter remembers going to the Mackinac Bridge and her dad had to drive all night to get back home. 

Over the years, they travelled in a motor home. Both of them enjoyed fishing and camping at Pleasant Lake and at another lake near Coldwater, Mich. Eloise enjoyed cooking and bowling. They had one daughter, Jacqueline Overmyer, and one granddaughter, Sabrina.  

On Dec. 21, Fairlawn is planning a 100th Birthday Party for Eloise. Family is invited to Eloise's special day.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
