Our Grams, Mary Lois Elliott, age 88, died August 8, 2012 at 7:25 p.m. surrounded my grandkids. We loved her dearly and hope she is having a wonderful time wherever she is now.
She lived a very long and interesting life. Granny was born Sept. 25,1923 in Glendale, Ind.
Her dad, Harley Wratten, was a coal miner. Her mother Pearl was a homemaker who raised six kids, Granny being the last one to pass into glory.
While in her early 20's she worked as a Rosie the Riveter girl assembling parachutes for the war effort.
She married her husband Gene Elliott in 1945 and went on to have three boys David, Jr and Cecil. She managed to out live all of them and suffered great sadness for it. She was retired from both RCA and Indiana University. She absolutely loved dearly her best friend Eula and her family thanks her so much for being our granny's friend for over 50 years.
Grams is survived by her grand kids David and Angel and great grand kids and several nieces and nephews.
We love you Grams! For the record her favorite song was sung by Ray Price "For the Good Times" you should listen to it, she believed in Love.
