Eloise Maloney passed away at home in La Mesa, California on November 3, 2017. She was the widow of Colonel Emmons Maloney. They shared 67 years of marriage together.
Born on November 12, 1921, in Wisconsin, Eloise was the daughter of Ernest & Alice. She joined the Woman Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES/Navy) in 1943 and was stationed in Oakland, California. After her tour of duty ending in November 1945, she returned to Wisconsin where she worked at the Wisconsin Employment Office. In the summer of 1946, she met the love her of life, Emmons Maloney, and they were married in October 1946. Being the wife of a Marine was challenging, moving often and waiting for Emmons to return from his long tours of duty.
