Family Memories and Other Information

 

Tillie Lottie George Sister Connie Charlie

 

4. Louisa(e) Frances "Sister Connie" ECKROAT          

From Sister Connie’s Journal:  “My history – born Wednesday, April 28, 1886, at North Bend, Nebraska.  Six weeks later we went to a claim in Colorado, near Fleming. In 1893 we moved to Iliff.  In December 1895 we went to Denver, in June 1896 came back to Iliff.  My mother and I went to Snyder NE in August 1896.  She died there September 5, 1896.  Made our first Holy Communion on June 13, 1897.  Went back to Iliff in the fall of 1897.  We came in a covered wagon back to Nebraska. Lived in Snyder one year and Omaha one year.  Charlie and I went back to Columbus 1899-1905.  I entered the convent May 1, 1905.”

 

Entries in her journal detail her music studies, service as an organist and school teacher (taught music and choir).  September 16, 1965, she recorded “had my eye removed.”  She had eye problems since childhood.  (Of interest to note that her father, Lewis, also had lost an eye and had a glass replacement made.) There were at least seven nuns in the ECKROAT family – an aunt and five cousins of Louise’s.

From Barbara ECKROAT WILD:  Recalling the first time I saw her without her “habit” on:  seeing her closely cropped, grey hair, I realized her human side – that she was my aunt. (Babs saved her journal and scrapbook – now in possession of M.Valerie ECKROAT DITTMAN.)

From Robert WILD: I remember when she visited us in Olympia in the early 1970’s, she was heavy set, short, and very sweet.
