Eloise Gillett Obituary
Eloise H. Gillett, 93, of El Paso, Texas, passed away Saturday, July 27, 2013. She was born on Feb. 18, 1920 in Dennison, Texas and was the daughter of D.M. and Tommie Bailey of Las Cruces, N.M. Eloise was a long-time real estate agent in El Paso. She was quite a lady with an array of friends through all her diverse interests – square dancing, Bunco and camping in her high heels, to name a few. You had to be pretty special to catch her without her heels, earrings and makeup. She will be missed by many! She is preceded in death by her husband Richard "Dick" Gillett; son Dicky Ben; brother Robert "Bob" Bailey; and her parents. Eloise is survived by son Tom Gillett (Vicky); daughter Pam Moore (Tom); grandsons Jason Waterbury (Michelle) and Landon Gillett; great-grandson Colin Waterbury; sister Virginia Ward (C.W.) and many family members and her special friend Buck. Graveside services and internment will be held at Memory Gardens, 4900 McNutt Road in Santa Teresa, N.M., at 11a.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013. In lieu of flowers please consider donations to St. Marks Methodist Church on Love Road in El Paso, or Mesilla Valley Hospice of Las Cruces. Arrangements are with Getz Funeral Home, 1410 E. Bowman Ave., Las Cruces, NM 88001. To sign the local online guest book, visit
