Eliot L. Alamire, 63, (f.k.a. Eloise Keilman Reeves) passed away on December 30, 2020 at her home in Greenwood, Indiana.

The youngest of three children of Richard and Joan Weist Keilman, Eliot was born in Connersville on Easter Day, April 21, 1957. She graduated from Connersville High School with the class of 1975 where she was active in the choir and drama departments. She was married on September 10th, 1979 to Dennis Reeves at St. Gabriel Church in Connersville. They had two children, Richard and Joanna Reeves. While she had many jobs in life, her most important was being a stay at home mom while her children were young. As they got older, she worked in the Registrar’s office at UIndy. This job allowed her to fulfill her life’s dream of going back to school where she earned her Bachelor of Science in English and Master of History from University of Indianapolis. She went on to teach English at both UIndy and Ivy Tech. She also did freelance editing and volunteered at the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra as well.
