One of the loveliest of mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, and friends, Eloise Hockman Lambert, passed into a new life on March 22, 2017, at her daughter's home in Houston, Texas. She was born April 21, 1922, in Davis, West Virginia, and grew up in Davis and Parsons. Eloise was the second oldest of nine children. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Merlan Meredith Lambert, and by her parents, Albert Smith Hockman and Myrtle Mary Morgart. She is also predeceased by a loving brother, Pete, and three loving sisters-Carol, Helen, and Margaret.

She was the mother of two daughters, Gretchen Ann Lambert Tuttle and Lisa Jane Lambert Springer. Eloise had six grandchildren: Elizabeth Ann Tuttle James, William Lambert Tuttle, Jennifer Meredith Springer Reus, Jonathan Gordon Springer, Christopher Albert Springer, and Karen Laura Springer Hughes.

Her great grandchildren include: Morgan Harrison Burns, Harper Caswell Burns, Meredith Elise Tuttle, Madeleine Grace Tuttle, William Augustus Tuttle, Samuel William Reus, and David Arthur Reus.

Also surviving are three brothers-Jack (Linda) Hockman, Dan Hockman, and Steve (Lois) Hockman, one sister, Susie (Ernie) Gabler, and a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Eloise graduated from Parsons High School in 1940. She received her Business degree in Fairmont, WV, and was a secretary at Household Finance. She also worked for White Gables in Parsons and Dr. Whiteside. At this same time, she was a heck of a dancer to Glenn Miller music.

On October 9, 1945, she married her high school sweetheart, Meredith Lambert, in Providence, RI. They lived in Morgantown, WV, Baton Rouge, LA, Westfield, NJ, and Conroe. Our mother was a precious and beautiful little lady, who had firm convictions and an independent spirit. She was a wonderful example to follow.

She and Meredith moved to Conroe in 1970. They were members of First Baptist Church and founding members of West Conroe Baptist Church. She loved reading her Bible, walking, working on family genealogy, attending and working in her church, volunteering at Conroe Regional Medical Center, and laughing with her friends. Her favorite activity, however, was being a mother and housewife.

Her last several years were spent at The Village of Meyerland in Houston, TX, where she had many friends. Eloise had a wonderful long life, a generous heart, and will be deeply missed. We respected her strength of character in her declining years. She will forever be in our hearts.

Friends were received Monday, March 27, from 10:00 AM - 12 noon, the funeral hour at St. John's United Methodist Church in Parsons, WV with Rev. Phillip Dent officiating. Interment followed in Parsons City Cemetery, Parsons, WV.

The family would like to thank all Village of Meyerland staff for taking such good care of Eloise. Memorials may be directed to: John Hagee Ministries, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, West Conroe Baptist Church, or the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
