About William Nolan Eiland:

Rockdale Reporter, Thur., 5 July 2007
TOMBALL - William Nolan Eiland, Sr., 90, passed away Thursday, June 21, 2007, in Houston. Nolan was born Aug. 23, 1916, in Rockdale to Joseph L. and Willie Hazell Eiland.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Louise Ann Foltin Eiland, son-in-law Lonnie F. Burress, and multiple brothers, sisters, brother-in-laws and sisters- in-law.

Nolan is survived by children: Bill Eiland and wife Sandra June, Karen Harms and husband Garold, Gary W. Eiland and wife Sandy, Brenda Shelander and husband Conley, and Linda Burress; grandchildren: Sandi and Jay Pittman, Travis and Amie Eiland, Michael Eiland, Jason Harms, Douglas and Angela Harms, Kara Harms, Trina and Monty Wuensche, Peter Eiland, Dustin and Laura Shelander, Bradley Shelander, Wendi and Aaron Kaiser, Staci and Mark Aden, and Rusty and Alicia Burress; 12 great-grandchildren; sister: Edna Mae DuBois of Milano; brother: Curtis Eiland and wife Eva Jean of Belton; brother-in-law: Milam ?Tom? Hill of Temple; sisters-in law: Glorine Eiland of Austin and Sadie Foltin Warren of Tomball; numerous other loving nieces, nephews, and relatives and a host of friends.

Nolan?s life revolved around service to his family, church, and country. He was a devout, lifelong Christian, a charter member of the Recreation Acres Full Gospel Church where he regularly worshipped for most of his adult life, and more recently attended Tomball Assembly of God and Salem Lutheran Church in Tomball.

Nolan was a beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and cherished ?Uncle Nolan? to many. Known for his caring demeanor, kind word and smile, punctual birthday and anniversary cards to countless relatives and friends, and frequent voice messages beginning ?This is (Nolan); just checking to see if (you) would answer the phone....? Nolan will be missed by all.

As a proud, disabled veteran of World War II, Nolan moved from his Army career directly into service at the Department of Veterans Affairs Regional Office in Houston, retiring in 1985 with 44 years of credited service to his country. He was a VA representative on an early Houston talk radio show that periodically scheduled an ?ask the expert? VA benefits question-and-answer segment for veterans and received multiple commendations and performance awards during his VA career, including nomination for the national ?Outstanding Handicapped Federal Employee Award for the Year 1970.?

After his retirement, Nolan was also a regular attendee at the annual Memorial Day ceremony at the National Cemetery in Houston. The Klein ISD honored Nolan and three brothers in 1993 with the naming of ?Eiland Elementry School.?

Visitation was 4-8 p.m. Sunday, June 24, at Klein Funeral Home in Tomball. Funeral Services were held at 11 a.m. Monday, June 25, at Tomball Assembly of God Church, 1101 W. Main, Tomball. Interment followed at Resthaven Memorial Gardens. Memorial contributions may be directed in his memory to the Full Gospel Evangelistic Association, 1400 E. Skelly Drive, Tulsa, Tulsa Co, Ok 74105, or to a charity of your choice.
