Beulah Mildred Eisenhauer

Beulah Mildred Eisenhauer, 103+ years, of Coupeville, Washington died in the early morning hours on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at Homestead Adult Care, where she had been staying. Teacher, Gardener, craftsperson, and one who insisted she wasnt a polyanna but always chose a smile over a frown, Mildred was an inspiration to others. She was born on February 21, 1911 in Alexandria, Nebraska, the eldest daughter of Carl and Mamie Averill. After earning early credits in high school, something unusual for that time, Mildred married Philip George Eisenhauer on May 25, 1928. They rented a farm adjacent to Philips childhood farm home in Jefferson County, and farmed there before and after moving to the nearby town of Gladstone, where Phil also sold seed for crops, and was an insurance agent for Bankers Life, now Principal Life Insurance. They raised six children to become responsible citizens.
