If you knew Eloise “Weesie” Goss, you shared a homecooked meal with her. You planted flowers with her every year. She surprised you with crème brulees, pound cake, special recipe cookies and baked chicken because she knew your favorite foods. She shared her love with you through them. Some of you worked with her during her 48- year cooking career at the Country Club of Little Rock. She secured you a summer job to help you make ends meet or you were co-workers who became lifelong friends and confidants. Her love of all music was legendary. She, her husband Leroy and sister Gracie hosted many a house party where the food was plentiful and the dancing and laughter never seemed to end. Eloise loved people. She loved life. She left a beautiful legacy of selflessness and graciousness. On November 3, 2020 Eloise left this earthly home to enter into her heavenly rest with loved ones who were waiting for her. Eloise was born April 5, 1931 in Little Rock, AR to Sula and Tommy Sheele Higgins. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Leroy Goss, sister Gracie Lee Johnson and niece Jacqueline Louise Wherry Carter. She leaves behind to cherish her wonderful memories her son, Kenneth Goss of Austin, TX; daughter Melody Thomas (Rob) of Lawton, OK; grandsons Gino Bradley Goss of Little Rock, Demico Eleyea of St. Cloud, Minnesota, and Noah Goss Thomas of Nashville, TN; niece Yolanda Faye Wherry of Little Rock, AR and her daughter Nicole Ford; Great aunt Lena Jackson, cousins Earnestine Philips, Mable Jean Jenkins; and a host of family and friends. She was a lifelong member of Christ Temple Holiness USA Church of God and Christ, as her family had been for three generations. She sang in the choir, worked on the hospitality committee and was a member of several organizations within the church. A graduate of North Little Rock Scipio A. Jones High school, Eloise learned a love of cooking and family celebrations from her mother, Sula. Both felt strongly that any blessing of God was to be shared with others. They lived and taught this to their family. Eloise reached out to the disenfranchised, the ignored and even the racists in the neighborhood when she first moved to the Central High Neighborhood – yes, she fed them too. At the end of their lives they asked for forgiveness and asked why she took care of them when they were so hateful. She said she was following God’s law to love your neighbor as yourself. Before that neighbor died, Eloise had “infected” him with her special brand of love as she would with so many others. In memory of Weesie, we ask that you share whatever blessings God has bestowed upon you with others. Offer a wave and a smile, be a listening ear, share your front porch swing with friends, family, and neighbors. Share your blessings and encourage others to share themselves. A private, immediate family-only graveside service will be held to honor Eloise. A true celebration of her life will be held after the COVID crisis has ended. Please share your memories about Weesie online at www.kellysmithfunerals.com.
