Please share a memory of Eloine to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Eloine Lucille Metheny, 95 of Bruceton Mills, WV passed away peacefully at home with her beloved family by her side on Wednesday, June 26, 2024. Born January 1, 1929, in Brookside, WV, Eloine was the oldest daughter of the late Guy and Myrtle Rumer. She was a humble country girl, helping her parents around the house and playing with critters in the creek. She began working when she was just 12 years old. As a teenager, she went to a party where she met a handsome young man just returning from the war. “It was love at first sight.” On December 14, 1946, she married that man and “it was a very good 68 years. We loved each other very much ‘til the very end when his cancer took him” on July 3, 2015. Eloine worked hard her entire life, enjoyed vacations with friends and family, and was a caretaker for many. Known for her buckwheat cake breakfasts complete with all the fixin’s, family and friends far and wide would gather around her table daily to eat, talk, laugh, and just be together. She was deeply devoted to her family, loving them with every ounce of her being while never hesitating to let them know when they were out of line. The love Eloine instilled remains in the hearts of her children Norma Ringer, Oren & Twyla Metheny, Glen & Robin Metheny, and Joyce & Bob Shafer; her grandchildren Joe & Amy Lewis, Brian Metheny, Christina & Allen Miller, Jaime & Percy Carr, Jared Metheny, Alicia & TJ Clark, Hillary & Koby Jenkins, Lester & Andrea Shafer, Harold & Summer Fearer, and Christopher & Laura Metheny; 38 great grandchildren; and 7 great-great grandchildren; siblings Virginia Wilhelm & Lawrence Rumer; sisters-in-law Carol Rumer & Zelmodine Casteel. In addition to her parents, Eloine was preceded in death by her beloved husband Junior Metheny, grandsons Jeffrey Metheny, great grandson Collin Casteel & Dakota Roach, son-in-law Jack Ringer, sister Ruby Casteel, brothers Robert Rumer & Richard Rumer, sisters-in-law Gerry Rumer, Darnice Rumer, Ethel Frantz, & Eleanor Metheny, brothers-in-law Elwood Wilhelm, Ivan Casteel, Kenneth Frantz, Chester Earl Metheny, & Nelson Casteel.
