Obituary of Margaret Eloise Douglas
Margaret Eloise "Ellie" (Feeney) Douglas, our angel, was born on August 25, 1942 at Hackensack Hospital. She was the third child born to John and Annette (DuBois) Feeney. For the next twenty-six years she would live with them in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ.
Ellie had attended the Hasbrouck Heights School System and graduated from the Hasbrouch Heights High School in 1961. She was employed by the New Jersey Bell Telephone Company as a telephone operators supervisor. In 1963, Eloise participated in the Miss Bergen County VFW contest. At the end of the evening, she was crowned as the winner of the competition. Years later she would marry her high school sweetheart, Robert "Bob" Douglas from Lodi, NJ. They continued to live in Bergen County for twelve years. During those years, Eloise and her husband were blessed with six children; Carolyn, Elizabeth, Allison, Bryan, Glenn, and Robyn Douglas. In 1981, the family moved to Belvidere in Warren County. During the early years in Belvidere, the family welcomed three additional children; Megan, Sarah, and Koryn Douglas.. All the children were fortunate because Eloise was a great mom who loved and enjoyed children. Chasing children and changing diapers were two of Ellie's favorite hobbies.
Eloise is survived by her husband, Bob; children, Carolyn Mattson, Elizabeth Nauyo, Allison Roemersma, Bryan Douglas, Glenn Douglas, Robyn Chisholm, Megan Douglas, and Koryn Stumpp; grandchildren, Samantha Mattson, Stephanie Mattson, Collin Casey, Connor Casey, Preston Rusin, Alexis Rusin, Tye Roemersma, Addison Roemersma, Ayden Douglas, Devon Douglas, Brandon Douglas, Brett Douglas, Lillyanna Allen, Roman Chisholm, Wendy Chisholm, Kallyse Douglas, Kamdynn Douglas, and Rory Stumpp.
In addition to her parents, Eloise was pedeceased by her sisters, JoAnne Feeney and Elaine Gable; an infant daughter, Sarah Douglas.
Eloise died at the age of 79 at St. Luke's Warren Hospital, Phillipsburg, NJ. Her passing was due to a stroke she had suffered years earlier and the various complications that event created for her. She was one of a kind and will definitely be thought of and spoken to in the yeaars to come.
