Eladrin P. Traver passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Nov. 4, 2009 in Tooele. Eladrin was born May 4, 1919 in Three Lakes, Snohomish County, Wash., to Gail (Abigail) Helen Kern and Rufus Philippa Waller, who was a sailor at Bremerton, Wash. The family later moved to Southern California and a sister, Virginia and brother David were born. Due to her mother's ill health, Eladrin was responsible for the care of her siblings. She graduated from high school in 1936 and junior college in 1938. She worked as a secretary helping her family and supporting herself. She married John Wilson Traver on June 30, 1943 when he was home on leave. Eladrin worked at the Veteran's Administration. After they moved to Tooele she worked in the welfare office while going to school. She graduated from the University of Utah on Aug. 18, 1968 and started teaching at Tooele Central Elementary in the third grade. She was a dedicated teacher who always went the extra mile with her students. This could be extra time or buying clothes for someone in need. After she retired she continued in education by tutoring students who needed extra help. She and Wilson were very active in their church and spent untold hours helping others or working on the maintenance of the old building that served as their church until the new St. Barnabus was built. They enjoyed square dancing and other community activities. Eladrin was an extremely talented person. Painting (water colors), sewing of all kinds, working with others to help those in need. She was a wonderful friend. She was extremely generous with her family. She was a devoted daughter, sister, wife and mother. She had style and grace and was a caregiver to all she knew. After Wilson's passing she fulfilled a life long dream by traveling. She cruised North and South America, Asia, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. She shared these trips by taking different friends along. She loved opera and had season tickets that she shared with others. She was a caring, sharing person whose bright smile and sweet ways will truly be missed. She is survived by her sister Virginia Quin of Kingman, Ariz., and her adopted daughter Deanna Gail Weaver of Salt Lake; numerous nieces, grand nieces, nephews and grand nephews. She loved her family and they loved her. Family and friends wish to thank the staff at Cottage Glen for their loving and caring ways.
