Obituary for Eloise Marian Kisor

Eloise Kisor was born Eloise Marian Low on September 7 1931 to Floyd “Bud” Tillson Low (AI Tribe Cherokee-Choctaw) and Rose May Tyler (AI Tribe Grand Ronde) in Corvallis, Oregon. She was the second child born to Bud and Rose. Older siblings included older half-sisters Irene (Henkleman) Imhof and Genevieve (Henkleman) Johnson and sister Petrova “Pat” Mae King, younger siblings Benjamin “Uncle Buddy” Floyd Low, Elizabeth “Betty” Thelma Nissen, Alene June Knowlton, Albert “Uncle Albie” Tillson Low, Colleen Maxine Garcia, Leonard “Uncle Lenny” Edward Low and Lottie Lavinas Child. All but Leonard have predeceased Eloise. Eloise was a proud member of the federally recognized Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.

Eloise and her siblings grew up in the woods outside of Philomath, Oregon learning to fish and hunt as a way of survival and as sport in later years. The depression era was a hard time to grow up; but they always had food on their table and helped their father in the woods by logging. Having a large extended family with aunts and uncles, they learned to horse back ride, dance and have fun. Eloise stayed with many of her aunts, uncles and grandparents and had many fond memories of this. In her later years she took care of some of her cousins and enjoyed those times.

Eloise married Ray Walter Kisor in Stevenson, Washington on February 7, 1948 and they had five children: Judy Rae Kisor, Dallas Floyd Kisor, Vicky Lynne Kisor, Robin Faye Kisor and Tina Ramona Kisor. Her son Dallas predeceased her in death in February 2019. From this union her life legacy is the following grandchildren: Jeffrey Ray Kizer, Holly Rae Kisor Leonard, Marylee Kizer Kane, Heather Kisor, Jordan Justen, Janelle Justen Savage, Gregory Ray Kisor, Raylene IdaRose Kisor, great-grandchildren Savannah Justen, Gabriella Justen, Joseph Kizer, Melissa Kane, Debra Kane and Daniel Kane, Zephan Kizer Love, Trystan Kizer, Caleb Kizer, Kisor Savage, Tyce Allan Kidwell, Presley Savage, Malachi Savage, and Gerrell Figg. Her final legacy is a great great grandchild Ethan Anorok of Anchorage Alaska. She was fortunate to spend time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was insistent on paying them for helping her walk the dogs etc., but always with saying one half for your pocket and one half for your college savings. She believed in education and one of her misgivings was she would have loved to be a teacher; but lived in times when most women married and raised children.

She was an incredible cook and many of her life memories were recounted with the food memories related to events etc. She could sew, hunt, fish and had a passionate love of dolls and restoration of them. She collected memorabilia and was always intrigued with clothes and fashion. She never went to the store without full make-up and jewelry on. Her children were quick to tease that she loved her dogs more than us, but she loved raising and caring for them and in her later years and they were her constant companions. She was a Christian and loved recounting passages she read in the bible. Her favorite singing artist was Daniel O’Conner and his Christian songs.

The union between Eloise and Ray ended in the 1960s and she later married Otto Ingram from Albany, Oregon. Some of her best memories were of living in Washington with Otto and near some of her family that had relocated there. That union was not to last and Eloise enjoyed her last relationship with companion Joseph Standard. She loved to travel during these times. She often told us in these past few months, she had a good life and had done all she wanted to do. She passed peacefully and quietly on November 5th, 2019.
