In Memory – Eulamae (Alfred) Love Byron, 1943-1944 Kiltie

*Whenever possible, the obituaries of Kiltie Alumni will be posted. It is important to remember those who marched before us.*
Eulamae Byron (Granny Love)

Eulamae Byron (Love) Born 12/6/1927, daughter of Charles and Wauneta Alfred passed away on her 89th Birthday, 12/6/2016. Granny Love, as she was called by most that knew her, was born in Springfield, MO where she attended Central High School and was a member of the Kilties (photo above).

Eulamae received her Bachelor’s in Fine Art (Music) from the University of Missouri as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Upon graduating she travelled the world for several years touring with the Hormel Girls Orchestra as a concert violinist. She married Dr. Walter Wallis Love September the 23rd 1946. She was a fantastic cook and loved to entertain. Eulamae and Walter loved to dance and were members of the Beaux Bells Dance Club. Eulamae was the spirited mother of 4 sons: Gary Love, Dr. Gregory Love, Dr. Gerry Love, and Dr. Gerard Love.

When Walter lost his life after a long battle with cancer, Eulamae spent several years off the dance floor. She met Clifton Byron and had a 2nd chance at love. Eulamae danced again. She buried Cliff less than three years after marriage, also to cancer. Eulamae was a lifelong supporter and donated often to the American Cancer Society having survived cancer herself. Eulamae had her final dance with Grandson Kyle Love at his wedding to Maria Palmer (Love) last April.

Eulamae loved her time on Sheridan in Springfield and her time in Willard, MO on Cedar Lake Ranch. There were peacocks, snapping turtles, cats, dogs, snakes, deer, and a lot of curious grandchildren. Eulamae was active in the PTA, Bridge Club, and was a founding member at Twin Oaks Country Club. Eulamae was an avid water-skier and spent many weekends at Lake-of-the-Ozarks with Walter and her 4 boys.

Eulamae loved to play bridge and was involved in Cub and Boy scouts. She was a lifelong horse aficionado starting her life in horsemanship showing 5-gated English Saddlebreds. In her later years Eulamae and her husband Walter raised Half-Arabian show horses. Eulamae and Walter traded in the country life for Table Rock Lake where Walter lived out his final years. Her love for music, dancing, animals, and the lake has been passed down to everyone in Eulamae’s family.

Eulamae was preceded in death by her parents, her 1st husband Dr. Walter Wallis Love, her 2nd husband Clifton Byron, and her son Gary Alfred Love. Eulamae is survived by her sons: Dr. Gregory Love (Jody) of Madison, WI, Dr. Gerry Love (Becky) of New Hartford, NY, and Dr. Gerard Love (Diane) of Hilton Head, SC. Eulamae and Walter welcomed their 5th son Keyhan Sinai of San Jose, CA through the AFS exchange program. Granny had 14 grandchildren: Brian Love (Rhena), Jeffrey Love, Joseph Love, Kyle Love (Maria), Charlie Love, Kate Harsh (Tony), Andrew Love (Julie), Tony Love, Jacob Love, Ashley Love, Victoria Love, Noah Love, Deirdre and Seamus Love. Eulamae had four Great Grand Children, Connor Love, Sidney Love, Eli Love, and Hazel Harsh.

Granny Love was a devout Catholic at St. Joseph in Springfield, MO. She loved her small group meetings with St. Joseph parish members. Eulamae was extremely close to her daughter-in-law Cyndi Berry and Cyndi’s husband, Troy. Granny was the Grand in Grand Parent and the Grandest of Great Grandparents. She shined bright in these moments. Her impression will last forever. Eulamae was especially close and supportive to the strong women in her life: Cyndi Berry, Jody Love, Diane Love, Rhena Love, Maria Love, Kate Harsh, and Deirdre Love. We will miss Granny’s vibrant soul and indomitable spirit. God needed 89 years to get ready for Granny. The music that was her life will play forever.

Eulamae’s visitation will be at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, 12/10/16 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Springfield, MO. The funeral Mass will follow at 10:00 a.m., Father Denis Dougherty OSB, celebrant. She will be interred at White Chapel on Division Street immediately following the funeral service. Special thanks to the friends, community, and staff at The Gardens in Springfield, MO where Granny lived out her final years.

In Memory – Jean Louise (Smith) Turner, 1932-1934 Scotch Lassie

*Whenever possible, the obituaries of Kiltie Alumni will be posted. It is important to remember those who marched before us.*

snl069563-1_20160512Jean Louise Turner

Jean Louise Turner was born August 17, 1915, and died Thursday, May 12, 2016 in her home at the age of 100. She was a Springfield native, the only child of Jewel and Jesse E Smith.

She attended Central High School, and was proud to play the bugle as a Kiltie for 3 years in Richie Robertson’s Scotch Drum and Bugle Corps, Springfield’s first one.

She attended State Teacher’s College, now known as Missouri State University, and was a member of the Alpha Beta Zeta Club, and later became a charter member of The Missouri University chapter of Alpha Delta Pi National Sorority. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree, she taught school before marrying Meredith B. Turner. Married teachers were not allowed to be full time teachers in those days, but could substitute, which she did.

Jean was a charter member and first Worthy Advisor of Rainbow for Girls, a charter member and former past president of the Ozark Belles chapter of Sweet Adelines, and a member of the three times medalist Versa-Tones Quartet. She was a charter member of the Civic Aires, and won a war bond in a city-wide contest for naming it. She was Membership Chairman of the Community Concerts Series for many years, and served on the SMS Alumni Board and was a member of the music department of Sorosis. She was a long time member of the Little Theater Guild, and twice received the Theater’s Frannie Award for outstanding service to the theater. She sang in 13 Little Theater musical productions, and also La Boheme, the first opera, after which the Guild was formed. In 1964 she received the Chamber of Commerce Woman of Culture Award.

In earlier years, Jean was an avid golfer and square dancer, winning trophies in both. As a member of the Ozark Sashayers champion square dance set, she and her husband performed at the Shrine Mosque for President Truman, who presented them with a large trophy, and Ronald Reagan, who was in town to advertise a movie.

Jean Turner was well known in and around Springfield for her soprano voice, and appeared throughout the city and county with her musical parents on countless programs of all sorts. Her mother, Jewel, was the piano player and orchestra leader for the silent movies in downtown Springfield theaters, and her father, Jesse, played the drums in the orchestra. Jean remembered sitting on the piano bench with her mother at the silent movies. Her father was also a talented trumpet and violin player.

She was a devoted lifelong member of St. Paul United Methodist Church, and member and past president of the Wedding Ring class, which became the Wesley class. Jean was a faithful member and soloist in the choir, and was the founder of the Cover Girls quilting group and the Bus Ministry.

Jean was an enthusiastic St. Louis Cardinals and Lady Bears fan. Her hobbies included arrowhead hunting and metal detecting. She owned the first metal detector in Springfield, and was occasionally called on to assist the police in investigations. In her latter years she enjoyed and was deeply involved in the LIFT program (Learning Is Fun Together), Knitting for Newborns in Need, and Crosslines.

After 53 wonderful years together, her husband, Meredith Bertram Turner, a member of the law firm of Turner, Reid, Duncan, Loomer, and Patton, preceded her in death, as well as her son Randall Meredith Turner. She is survived by her daughter, Linda Jean Medoff, and her husband Paul, of Oakland, CA; six grandchildren: Marnella Hatch and Delayne Medoff of Berkeley, CA; Kimberly Tucci and her two daughters Elizabeth and Gabriella of Bradford, CT; Jay Turner of Ridgefield, CT; and Waylon and Jesse Turner of St Louis, MO.

The family would like to especially thank Miranda Cawlfield, Autumn, Trinity and V,say at Family to Family Services.
