Eloise Buck Brown, 86, of Highlandville, Mo., passed away on Saturday, March 18, 2023. She was born to Aua and Vida Gibson Buck on December 1, 1936, near Stuart, Oklahoma.
Eloise was a very loving and caring person. She loved children and cared for them in her home in Springfield and in Highlandville for many years. Young children were not able to say Eloise, so they affectionally caller her Weezy and therefore, her name was well known for Weezy.
She graduated from Stuart High School and moved to Highlandville in 1955, where she met her husband Bob Brown in Springfield. Bob and Weezy were united in marriage on June 8, 1958, and to this union were born two children, Alesha and Michael. The family moved to Highlandville together in 1971, where they owned and operated the Brown's Feed and Grocery Store, where they both retired in 1999.
She was preceded in death by her parents Aua and Vida Buck, her son Michael Gene Brown in 1982 and her husband Bob Brown in 2020, four brothers Aubrey Buck, Clinton Buck, Bill Buck and Bob Buck, along with two sisters Pearl Grant and Audra Danderson.
She is survived by her daughter Alesha Fields and husband Don; four grandchildren, Joshua Fields, Jonathan Fields and wife Michelle, Jacob Fields and his wife Clarissa, and Hannah Caraway and husband AJ; four great-grandchildren Noah, Izaiah, Wayva, and Lily; along with many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends.
