BETTY LOU COLEMAN EIKLEBERRY Aug. 2, 1930 – March 9, 2018

Betty Lou Coleman Eikleberry, age 87, passed away March 9, 2018 after a long illness. Her last hours were spent comfortably with her daughters and granddaughters, listening to stories and singing along with favorite show tunes, in particular, “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” from Oklahoma.

Betty was born in Sioux City, Iowa, one of five children, on August 2, 1930. Early in her marriage, she and her dear husband, Robert “Bob” Eikleberry, moved their family to Los Alamos in 1959, where they made it a home for the next 54 years. As a Registered Nurse, she worked in the Los Alamos Schools as a school nurse. Betty treasured her husband, daughters, sisters, neighbors, church, and many life-long friends at First Baptist and White Rock Baptist churches.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband Bob, her two sisters Emma Mae Easterling and Sally Ann Dye, and two brothers, Jackie and Donald Coleman. She is survived by her two daughters Deb Fletcher (Terry) and Mary Inman (John); four grandchildren Darius Fletcher and Robert, Anne and Jessica Inman.
