Eloise was born in Hoffer, SK and was one of ten children raised by Mildred and Clarence Domstad. Eloise married Don Outhwaite in Plentywood, Montana on March 3, 1956. They had three children, Dawn Adele, Lori and Dan. Mom was a “stay-at-home” mom. She belonged to Oil Wives in Swift Current and Calgary, where she met most of her life-long friends. Mom enjoyed curling, bridge and golf. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed entertaining for family and friends. Mom was very close to her family and loved being around them. She spent her retirement years in Parksville, BC and loved the ocean and fishing with Dad. Mom was a grandmaster bridge player. She loved watching all sports and was a dedicated Calgary Flames and Saskatchewan Roughriders fan. She also enjoyed tailgating with Dan at Stampeders games.
