Elouise Shaw Kallina

Elouise Shaw Kallina, 94, died Dec. 17, 2012.

A memorial service for celebrating Elouise’s life is 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 31, at Trinity Baptist Church, 319 E. Mulberry, San Antonio, TX 78212. She will be buried next to her beloved Frank at the Spring Creek Cemetery off the Cleburne-Weatherford Highway.

Eloise has slipped from her earthly shackles and into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was greeted by her beloved husband, Frank Cyril Kallina; her sons, Frank Jr. and James Leon; her parents, James Benjamin and Zuella Milburn Shaw; sister, Katherine Shaw Johnson; and brothers, James Benjamin Shaw Jr. and Thurman Albert Shaw; as well as many other beloved family and friends.

Born Aug. 22, 1918, Elouise grew up on a peach and vegetable farm in Parker County near Weatherford. She graduated from Weatherford High School and Texas State Teachers College (now Texas Woman’s University). While teaching Home Economics in Mission, Texas, she met the love of her life, Frank Cyril Kallina, who was working as a geologist for Standard Oil of New Jersey. Frank and Elouise married on Dec. 31, 1941. They added her 12-year-old younger brother, Albert, to their family after the death of her parents. He became like an older sibling for their three children, Kay, Jimmy and Janis.

The family moved around Texas and settled in San Antonio in order for son, James Leon (Jimmy), to attend Sunshine Cottage and Frank to open his own exploratory petroleum company. Elouise’s life revolved around care ministries that met the needs of her family, friends and especially Trinity Baptist Church. Her diligent instruction in sound-word recognition helped Jimmy learn to read lips and speak orally. She and Frank later invited into their home a deaf child who needed a place to live while, along with Jimmy, attending Sunshine Cottage. They also provided housing and financial support for a cousin while she attended Trinity University and then nursing school.
