Words fail to express the extent of our feelings at the loss of one of the world's most wonderful women, our wife, mother, and grandmother, Eloise Nichols Baron. Born July 19, 1916, in Brigham City, Utah, to parents, George Washington Nichols Jr. and Minnie Jeanette Yearsley. Eloise was raised in Brigham City, and graduated from Box Elder High School in 1934.
At age 18, she married a handsome young student, her dear husband and the love of her life, Clark Melvin Baron. After 36 wonderful years together, he preceded her in death on July 20, 1970, at Grand Canyon, Arizona.
Their happy marriage was later solemnized in the Logan Temple on January 28, 1953.
She passed away peacefully on February 12, 2017, at her home in Brigham City, Utah.
Preceded in death by her parents, her sweet husband, son, Steve Baron, two brothers and five sisters. ...
She enjoyed being a homemaker and made her home a heaven on Earth. There was much love, understanding and encouragement given there.
The great love Eloise and Clark had for each other was a shining example for others. For over 100 years, she has touched many peoples lives with her generosity, quick smile and loving tender heart.
A devout member of the LDS Church, Eloise was faithful to the end. She served in numerous callings throughout the years (Primary, Sunday school, 1st Counselor in the Relief Society, and stalwart visiting teacher). She served in Utah, Arizona and Saskatchewan, where she served an 18-month mission which included teaching seminary.
Eloise enjoyed traveling, camping, and her family. She had many virtues. She loved people and they loved her. She never spoke ill of anyone. She was a peacemaker with a great love for her family. Everyone felt they were her favorite. Everyone will miss her kisses on the cheek and her big hugs.
Eloise was devoted to her family and decorated her home with photographs of her loved ones. She told her children that her greatest ambition was to be a good mom, and what a wonderful mom she was. Thank you Sweetheart, Mom, Grandma, and friend for all the love you have shared with us throughout the years. You are leaving behind many people who love you, and also a large hole in our hearts.
We are going to miss her, but we are also happy to know that she is reunited with her sweetheart, appropriately enough, so close to Valentines Day, at last and forever.
Clark Melvin Baron
1915–1970 (m. 1934)
