Obituary

On Thursday, May 6, Carol Jean Eiler Glover, loving wife and mother, passed away at the age of 76.

Carol was born on March 9, 1945 in Peru, Indiana to Ralph and Arvilla Eiler and grew up on the family dairy farm. She attended Manchester College for two years before spending three years serving with Brethren Volunteer Service in Germany and Austria, where she was active in the peace movement. Returning to the states, she received a BS from Boston University and an MS from the University of North Carolina, both in nursing. She worked as a Nurse Practitioner in family practice before teaching as a professor at the University of New Hampshire. On October 24, 1986, she married Michael Glover and they settled in Durham, NH, raising two beautiful daughters, Caitlin and Hannah.

Carol was energetic, intuitive, hard working and passionate about any cause she saw as just. She was devoted to her daughters, shepherding them through after-school sports and on to college. She led the local PTO and was an impassioned and active participant in local politics.
She was an avid reader and authored a memoir. She had recently resumed pottery, loving the artistic expression and community it offered. During the winter she snowshoed and during the summer she tended a large garden.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Ralph and Arvilla Eiler, and by her older sister Judy Devries. She is survived by her husband Michael and her daughters Caitlin and Hannah, and by her younger sister Barbara Patch. An online celebration of life will be held May 22, 2021, at 1 pm EDT.

My condolences to Carol's family. I remember Carol well from her UNH days. She was a joy to see in the hallways, always had a laugh and time for a conversation. She was a favorite with students. I've missed seeing her in the past few years. Our loss. Again, my sympathies.

Tribute to Carol (Eiler) Glover

Carol and I became friends at Manchester College in 1963 through involvement in campus events and Church of the Brethren activities. Both Carol and I joined the 68th Unit of Brethren Volunteer Service in Fall 1965. After several months training at New Windsor MD, we were both assigned to projects in Europe – Carol in Austria, then in Germany, and I on a team in Greece. We visited each other at our projects during that time. For both of us, the experiences of were inspirational and had a lasting influence on our lives.

We kept in touch occasionally through the years that we were pursuing careers and raising families. Carol and I reconnected again in 2007 and enriched our friendship by sharing stories and exploring parallels of experiences, perspectives, insights, and wisdom which enriched our lives. Carol’s stories focused keenly on her passions for family, service, health and well-being, writing and pottery.

I am grateful for Carol’s friendship and her support at several especially significant times in my life. I have deep respect and appreciation for Carol. In memory, I give her high tribute:
- for her grounding and early formative years on her family’s small farm in Indiana, where she was instilled with and nurtured by her “‘can do’ and ‘get-it-done’ spirit”.

- for successfully facing life’s vagaries with determination and a positive attitude that affirms ”even when life is challenging, we will get through and we’ll have some fun, too”.

- for her sharp intellect, desire for learning and consistently applying her knowledge and effort toward justice with a vision that “things will get better and this can be a better world”.

- for her commitment to achievement, excellence and creativity, and for striving always and in all things “to do good and to do good well”.

- for her abilities to engage and explore, analyze and adapt in different circumstances while maintaining a sincere sense of self and integrity, “This is who I am and this is what I believe”.

- for her compassion and ability to care for others, and for the foundation of values upon which her commitment was grounded – “Life is ultimately for caring, sharing, loving and questing”.
Though we miss the blessing of Carol’s presence, she will always be a source of love and inspiration.
May her family and loved ones be abundantly blessed by her life, her passions, and their memories.
