So sorry to hear of Eloise's passing. I have many fond memories of working for her and Charlie in the 50's. We delivered a lot of ice, merchandise, mail, coal, etc to the fine people of Astoria. May she rest in peace. Bill Weime

My heart was saddened to hear of Ms. Dorothy's passing. I had the privilege of working with her as her supervisor in the mail room at Illinois River Correctional Center. She was a live wire and would tell you what she thought. My kind of gal! With help, I was able to host her surprise retirement party at my home. Wonderful memories. I hated losing touch with her. May the Lord provide peace and comfort to you all during this time and in the days to come.
