January 24, 1928 - April 28, 2019
On the morning of April 28th, 2019, Eilene Almos passed to her new home of eternal love and peace! Her life’s journey began in Elgin, North Dakota on January 24, 1928, the daughter of Elmer and Alma Hegge. She joined a busy, hard working farm family which included 10 cherished brothers and sisters. As a young adult, she moved to Yakima where she finished her education. At this time she also learned she had been infected with polio! She endured months of physical therapy, made easier by the affection of a young man home from WWII. On September 28, 1946, Eilene married that young man and loved him for over 60 years. Eilene and Lloyd made their home in Yakima where they raised 3 children and were involved in many community activities. They loved to square dance and were members of the Gateswingers Dance Club. They also enjoyed playing golf, games of bridge and camping and waterskiing with their family. Eilene and Lloyd were active members of Bethlehem Lutheran Church for many years. Through all these activities they developed many life long friendships. Upon retirement, Eilene and Lloyd began spending their winters in Arizona and continued to do so for 25 years. Eilene often spoke of how wonderfully blessed and memorable these years were. Eilene and Lloyd moved to Moses Lake after leaving Yakima, and enjoyed living closer to family and the fellowship of new friends. She became a member of Immanual Lutheran church and enjoyed her worship there. She loved being closer to her grandchildren who she adored and never stopped talking about! And when the great grandchildren came along, her joy was multiplied. Her grandchildren called her Grandma G which was short for Grandma Great and she was! Eilene was preceded in her death by her husband Lloyd, son Jerry, son-in-law Tom Jarman, and her cherished brothers and sisters. She is survived by her daughters Janet and Judy (John), her 6 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Private family burial has been planned for Thursday, May 2nd at Guarding Angels Cemetery! A celebration of her life has been planned for later in June. Our family would like to express our sincere appreciation to Assured Hospice and Summerwood for their loving care and concern for our Mom..she was truly blessed by each of you.
