Elois Winona Burdick was born in Kremmling, Colorado, July 23, 1913, to George H. and Lola Hendrix. She grew up in Denver and graduated from West Denver High School. After graduation from high school, she worked a short time for MST&T as a switchboard operator. Elois worked in California and Nevada in 1943. She married Delwin Grant Burdick on December 31, 1943, and assumed for herself the task of raising Mr. Burdick's two son, Richard G. and Edwin E., who were 13 and 12 years old respectively, at the time. They lived at 3534 Eliot Street, Denver, Colo. After raising her two stepsons and seeing them married, Elois again joined the workforce and became a PB and typing teacher at Parkes Business School until 1974. Elois joined the Denver Seventh Day Baptist Church in 1945 and became an enthusiastic working member from the start, working in Bible study groups and in the Ladies Aid Society. This enthusiastic work continued on until her poor health forced her to be mostly confined to her home, even then Elois still served on the Memorial committee until her death on September 24, 1986.

She is survived by sons, Richard G. Burdick and wife, Dianne, of Lakewood, Colo. and Edwin E. Burdick and wife, Mary, of Westminster, Colo. Also survived by four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
