Mrs. Eloise Johnson Halsey was born on May 13, 1955, in the Bronx, New York. She was a daughter of the late Ezekiel Johnson and Corine Williams Johnson. She transitioned to be with the Lord on January 8, 2020, at her residence.

She was educated in the Public School System of the Bronx, New York. She later matriculated to Cornell University where she earned an Associates of Arts (A.A.) degree in Labor Law Relations.

Eloise met and married the love of her life, Joseph B. Halsey, Sr., on January 6, 2006, and celebrated their 14th Wedding Anniversary only two days before her demise.

She worked as a Nursing Technician for 14 years before becoming a Contract Administrator with Union 1199 Service Employees International Union (SEIU)/United Healthcare Workers East, the largest healthcare union in the United States. Moreover, she was a strong, very diligent and meticulous worker, as she made certain that all her “I’s” were dotted and her “T’s” were crossed. She was considered to be an activist, as well as a warrior, as she fought hard for the workers when she felt they had been wronged. Eloise worked for the union for 14 years before retiring in 2017 to relocate to Greenville to assist in the care of her mother.

Eloise loved her family and would do anything to assist them in any way she could. She was a very loving grandmother who loved her daughter and grandchildren showering them with much affection. She was an avid music lover. Although she had not found a home church in time here, her faith in God never wavered. She loved the Lord.

She leaves to cherish many loving and fond memories, her husband of 14 years, Joseph B. Halsey, Sr., of the home; a daughter, Lateema Teshawn Johnson, of Berea, South Carolina; two stepsons, Joseph B. (Jarneece) Halsey, Jr., of Hampton,Virginia, and Jonathan D. Halsey, of Seattle, Washington; her mother, Corine Williams Johnson, of Greenville, South Carolina; a loving and doting sister, Misty Duckett of Greenville, South Carolina; four brothers, Ezekiel Tyrone Johnson, Darren Johnson, Timothy Johnson, and Muhammad Ali Kinte Johnson, all of Greenville, South Carolina; an aunt, Edna Delores Stanley; a grandson, Devin Rashad Clement, of Greenville, South Carolina; a granddaughter, Brooke Olivia Cruell, of Berea, South Carolina; four special great-nieces, Lena McCullough, London McCullough, Zyla Thomas, and Tyuanna Johnson; a special great-nephew, Caleb Gamble; two very special lifelong friends, Jackie Venner and Erica Davis, and a host of nephews, nieces, great-nephews, great-nieces, cousins, and friends.

I'm writing this in the hopes that someone from her family sees it. My name is Devon, a young man living in Bronx, NY. I've been receiving phone calls and text messages for months from people who believed I was this woman. I was sent a text message last night from a number I'm unfamiliar with with a link to her facebook page. I understand that her loved ones may still be mourning her, but if any of you get the chance, I'd appreciate if you emailed me at so I can properly send my condolences, and possibly get more information on who this woman was.
