Eloise Armstrong Buthe
1932 – 2020

Gastonia - Eloise Armstrong Buthe, 88, passed away on December 23, 2020. Eloise was born in Gaston County on July 2, 1932. She was the daughter of Ralph M. Armstrong (Buck) and Louise Gaston Armstrong. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by husbands, Hugh Allen Mullis and Egon Buthe and siblings, Ralph M. Armstrong, Jr. and Betty Jean Armstrong.

Eloise graduated from Belmont High School in 1950 and attended Berea College, Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing (Registered Nurse), and UNC-Greensboro (Nurse Practitioner). Her nursing career was primarily at Presbyterian Hospital and Burlington Industries.

Her greatest joy in life was found in God, family, and nursing, along with later opportunities to teach others her hobby of sewing and quilting. Her life's desire was to donate her body for the advanced study of medicine.

She is survived by her children, Alan (Mari) Mullis of Leachville, Arkansas, Lisa (Steve) Carrigan of York, South Carolina, and Molly (Mark) Whitehouse of Blacksburg, Virginia, six grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. Also, surviving is a faithful and special friend, Ted Reece.

Because of the current health crisis, no funeral services will be held. A Remembrance Service may be held at a later date.

A special expression of gratitude is extended to the phenomenal staff of Brookdale New Hope and Hospice and Palliative Care of Lincoln County who provided loving and compassionate care to our mother and grandmother.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice and Palliative Care of Lincoln County, 900 Dontia Drive, Lincolnton, NC 28092.
