Allene Violet Carver Eisel started her amazing life on September 25, 1922 to Violet Ruth Larsen Carver and Norman Alan Carver in her grandmother’s Dover, NJ apartment.

She attended Bernardsville High School in Bernardsville, NJ where she was voted ‘Most Popular’. She married Frank John Eisel, Sr. (born on 8-2-1923 and passed on 2-15-2002) on June 2, 1946 at the St. Bernard’s Episcopal Church in Bernardsville, NJ. She lived her child raising years in Morris Township, NJ where she raised her three children: Nancy Louise Hennessey, Frank John Eisel, Jr. (Carmita), and Barbara ‘Missy’ Cunningham (Christopher ‘Bo’), then the couple retired to Abingdon, VA where she and Frank, Sr. spent many happy years on South Holston Lake together enjoying their float boat and the beauty of the lake. In 2012, she moved to Lynchburg, VA to live out her remaining time on Earth where she lived a full fun filled life on her own until age 98.

Always busy in her retirement, she enjoyed Abingdon’s Garden, Circle, and Lunch Bunch Clubs of which the last being her favorite which seemed to follow her wherever she lived. Always very social, she lived life to the fullest while always giving more to others than her own needs which was her secret to a long life. She taught her youngest daughter (Missy) to ice skate at age 45 then became her cheerleading coach in her early 50s. She was a fun seeker and fiercely independent all of her life and is fondly remembered for her stories of hopping on horses bareback in her teens and pond hopping with her friends. She taught Sean and Missy how to do car snow donuts on a snowy afternoon.

Mom passed on April 19th at 9:15 pm surrounded by Missy and Bo after saying good bye to each family member with special chats with Jeremy and Kristen. She passed according to her wishes and dreamt of Frank and swore he was there with her along with the angels delivering her wings confirming that Heaven was waiting for her.  May she be surrounded by human and furry loved ones past and live her eternal life free of pain or suffering. May they all rejoice together.

Grandchildren include Sean Christian Hennessey (Jessica Dahlin Owens); Jeff Eisel; Thomas Eisel (Lindsay Shay); Kristen Pielat (Bellamy); Jeremy Blake Cunningham and many furry grandkids. Great grandchildren include: Atlas Hennessey, Jacob Eisel, Nathan Eisel, and Blake Eisel.

Allene ‘Skip’ leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, humor and good nature. We could not have hand picked a better Mother, grandparent, friend or role model. She always had an inspirational quiet strength that would guide us or give her a ‘feeling’ about something, perhaps what we called a ‘direct’ link to above. Her belief and strength in the Lord gave us hope and love during life’s difficult journeys.

Special thanks are to be given to all of her friends that became family especially Patricia Watters and Deloris Davis. The family is ever so thankful and grateful for your friendship and love to our Mom.

In honor of her memory and in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to: The Lynchburg Humane Society @ http://lynchburghumane.org/.

A graveside service will be held Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 1 pm at Forest Hill Memory Garden in Abingdon, VA.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.

Our hearts are saddened to hear of Skip's passing. She was one of a kind person, always funny, caring and down to earth. The world is a better place for her being here 98 years. I feel fortunate to have known both Skip and Frank. They were the best couple, and now they're together again.

Good bye Skip! You and Big Frank were a part of my youth I will never forget. Thanks for being my friend when Big Frank would yell at me for letting the Tippy out of the coup because i forgot to lock the gate after playing with him. I can still here is deep voice "Jimmy Widdoss what the hell is wrong with you son". LOL Skip would say something you know you love that boy why bother yelling at him and Big Frank would just laugh and say "Damn Kid". Even though we have not seen each other for years the Eisels will always be family to me and I will miss you Skip Have fun with Big Frank he has been waiting for you. P.S, Say hi to Pop and Nanna too for Jimmy Go Yanks

Skip was one of a kind! She was the sweetest most loving person I have ever met. We grew to love Frank and Skip like family and we were Blessed to have been their neighbor and friend! We have missed Frank for a long time and we missed Skip when she moved to Lynchburg , now we will miss her after her leaving this earth! I know Frank was right there waiting to welcome her home! They are together again just the way it should be! Our prayers are with all of the family as this is a very difficult thing to do to say good bye to Skip! We love you all!

Our hearts are saddened, but yet rejoicing knowing that our neighbor and friend Allene has passed from an earthly life of loving family and friends to an indescribable life with her Lord and Savior. She has been a joy to know and we have been amazed and encouraged by her zest for life. Our thoughts and prayers for the comfort and peace for her family at this time...we shall miss knowing she is no longer residing across the street, but must smile when we imagine the joy she is experiencing with her loved one and her Lord.
