Edna Cornelia Marquis Eller, 90, passed away on Friday, October 16, 2009. She was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Rev. Paul C. Eller.

She is survived by her four children, Janice Eller Fralin and husband, Wayne Fralin, Olympia, Wash., David B. Eller and wife, Barbara Kritzer Eller, Elizabethtown, Pa., Douglas A. Eller and wife, Janice Dull Eller, Portland, Ore. and Marilyn Eller Blickenstaff and husband, Michael Blickenstaff, Nampa, Idaho; and by nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Born in 1919 in Slifer, Iowa, to Earl Washington Marquis and Bertha Marquis, Cornelia moved, as a child, with her family to Chicago, Ill., where she attended grade school, middle school, graduating from John Marshall High School and then Beauty School.

After marrying, she and her husband moved to Roanoke, Va. An accomplished pianist and accompanist, she was actively involved in the music programs in churches when her husband served as Minister of Music. She carried that talent and skill with her when Rev. Eller held pastorates in Idaho, California and Virginia.

She especially enjoyed working with children's choirs. Cornelia was also proficient as a seamstress and needleworker, taking pleasure in quilting, crocheting and needlepoint. In retirement she and her husband returned to Idaho, residing in Nampa since 1989.

A celebration of Cornelia's life will be held at Nampa Church of the Brethren on Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 11 a.m. A second celebration will be held at a later date in Roanoke, Va. She will be interred in Sherwood Memorial Park in Salem, Va. beside her husband.
