Elois was born in Kansas City, Mo, to Clyde and Helen Consaul on July 12, 1919. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands, Charles F. Frederick and Elvin H. Whisler, and grandson Jimmy Frederick.

Elois was one of the first school bus drivers in the Blue Springs R4 school district, winning many awards for her safe driving. She was a member of Lake Lotawana Shrine Club, the Scooter Corps and the Eastern Star.  Elois was also a lifelong member of the Blue Springs Historical Society.  In her early years, she was a member and hosted her Bridge Club, Elois loved music so much she taught herself to play the organ, and loved singing and harmonizing with friends and family all her life.

Elois spent many years assisting in the health care industry and retired in 1985 from Park Lane Medical Center. She was a devoted and an active member of the Blue Springs First Christian Church where she loved singing in the choir and assisting in the Church Office, even learning how to use computer technology to conduct church business. Elois also served as an Elder Emeritus.

Mom always had time, love and support for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved to have them around her. She was very giving because her family was her life.

Elois is survived by five children, two with her first husband, Charles F. Frederick (who died in a test flight of a B-25 bomber in WWII), son, Ronald Frederick and daughter Mary Jo Chase; three children with Elvin H. Whisler, sons, Mike Whisler, Buddy Whisler, and Jerry Whisler; two stepchildren, Kenny Whisler and Geneva Courm. She was blessed with 14 grandchildren, 28 great grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren. Elois was so very proud of each and every one of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Her children wish to extend a special “Thanks” to the staff of the Village of Jackson Creek and the Good Shepherd Hospice for the love, compassion and care they gave our Mother.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made towards Feed the People Ministries through First Christian Church of Blue Springs.
