Love, Eloise

Written by David Green.

Eloise Love, 99, of Fayette, Ohio, died Nov. 10, 2012, at Fairlawn Haven in Archbold, Ohio, one month shy of her 100th birthday.

She was born Dec. 20, 1912, in Franklin Township, Ohio, to the late Fred and Freida (Double) Schang. She married John Ralph “Jack” Love on June 26, 1935, in Columbia City, Ind., and he preceded her in death July 7, 1992.

Eloise was a life-long resident of the Fayette area. She attended school through the eighth grade at the East Franklin School. Eloise and her husband, Jack, owned and operated Fayette's Sohio gas station for decades at their residence on N. Fayette St. In her later years, she enjoyed traveling with Jack, especially the fishing trips at Pleasant Lake and Silver Lake in Michigan. Eloise also enjoyed cooking and bowling.

Eloise is survived by her daughter, Jacqueline Overmyer of Morenci, Mich.; two brothers, Edgar (and Phyllis) Schang of Bryan, Ohio, and Robert Schang of Archbold; and a granddaughter, Sabrina (and Lee) Schultz of Tecumseh, Mich.

In addition to her parents and husband, Eloise was preceded in death by two sisters, Bernice Larned and Mary Baker; two brothers, Donald and Orville Schang; and a son-in-law, Clyde Overmyer.

According to Eloise’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service is planned at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, at Eagle Funeral Home-Barrett Chapel in Fayette. Interment of her cremated remains will follow at the Pleasant View Union Cemetery in Fayette.

Memorial donations are suggested to the Lenawee County Humane Society.

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
