Euletta Meusborn - February 16, 2012
Euletta Irene Meusborn of Holyoke was born in Yuma on March 5, 1931. She was the first of three children of Joe and Irene (McGuinnis) Pittsenberger. She died Feb. 16, 2012 at Melissa Memorial Hospital in Holyoke.
Euletta’s family moved from Yuma to Holyoke in 1936. In 1948 Euletta’s mom “arranged” a dinner at her house where Euletta met her future husband, Dwaine (Mike). Euletta was not very happy about having to stay for dinner, as she had other plans, but her mother knew Dwaine was a keeper.
She graduated from Holyoke High School in 1949. In 1951, she moved with friends to California to wait for Dwaine to be discharged from the Army. They were married on Feb. 14, 1953 in Gardena, Calif. They raised four children in California and in 1987 retired to Holyoke.
Euletta is preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Irene Pittsenberger; and son-in-law, Jim.
She is survived by her husband, Dwaine; daughter, Diane; son, Randy and wife Kay; son, Tim and wife Lucy; son, Tom and wife Mary; sister, Pat and husband Tom; brother, Ron and wife Jeri; seven grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews and a host of friends.
