Elloise Rae Chambers

Jan. 9,1946 - Jan. 3, 2022

PORTLAND, Ore. — Elloise Rae (Giles) Chambers was welcomed into the loving arms of Jesus on Jan. 3, 2022, after a long battle with Parkinson’s and Lewy Body disease.

Elloise was born Jan. 9,1946, in Hastings, Neb., the second child of Melvin and Henrietta Giles. She attended Arapahoe, Neb., public schools and was very active in the school music program, absolutely loving playing the trumpet. She attended the University of Denver and during her sophomore year, married to Terry Chambers at the Arapahoe Methodist Church.

Elloise was an extraordinary woman who wanted nothing more from life than to be a homemaker, mother and showing Jesus to everyone she met. Elloise and Terry welcomed their son, Jeff, into the world a week before Terry’s college graduation. Three years later they welcomed their second son, Jason, into the world. Elloise was an active, loving, caring mother who took great interest and pride in being involved with her children’s school activities. Upon Terry’s retirement in 2000, Elloise relished her new role as loving grandma and adoring aunt to her grandchildren and nieces and nephews. She loved entertaining friends and family in her home in Estes Park.

Elloise was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Suzanne and her brother-in-law William Chambers. Survivors include husband, Terry; sons, Jeff (Kelly) and Jason; brother-in-law, James Adams; sister-in-law, Glenda Chambers; grandchildren Nick (Kate) Chambers, Savanna Chambers and Ashton Zeth; nieces and nephews, Bill (Blanca) Chambers, Tonya (Pat) Moyle, James M. Adams, and Jenny McCombs; and a host of cousins and friends. Memorials can be made to your local chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association.

A private service will be in Portland.
