Elloise Ewing McVicker was born on April 18, 1932, the youngest of three, to Lionel and Ruth (Testerman) Ewing in Great Bend, Kansas. Elloise attended school in Wiley, Colorado from fifth grade to twelfth grade, where she graduated as Valedictorian.

She was united in marriage to John E. McVicker on December 31, 1950, in Wiley. Elloise built her career in banking and insurance. She worked for the State Bank of Wiley for several years while raising their family and farming. After their 25th Anniversary, she and John bought a farm near Lisco, Nebraska, and she continued with banking and insurance at Lisco State Bank.

Elloise enjoyed sewing, decorating, interior design, and hosting bridge and family gatherings. After their retirement in 1995, she and John wintered in Zapata, Texas, for seventeen years where they enjoyed golfing, dancing, playing card games, and spending time with family.

Elloise was an active member of the Lisco Presbyterian Church where she served as clerk and deacon. Elloise filled much of her time keeping up with birthdays, sending cards to each of her 15 great grandchildren, 7 grandchildren, 3 children and their anniversaries. She never missed a birthday, and her calendar was always full. She enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s events and activities and cheering them on from the stands.
