Eloise Marion Dragon, a soprano whose voice was featured in motion pictures and live radio shows, died Feb. 19 following a long respiratory illness in Malibu. She was 84.
In the 1940s and ’50s, Dragon (accompanied by her husband, the late Carmen Dragon) was known as “The Voice of Eloise” on national radio programs such as “Maxwell House Radio Show,” “The Colgate Hour” and “Prudential Hour.”
In the 1950s and ’60s, she and her husband worked on “The Standard School Hour,” which was broadcast daily in public schools.
She is survived by two daughters, music publisher Kathy Henn of Dragon Music and harpist Carmen E. Dragon; three sons, Dennis, Daryl (the “Captain” of the musical duo Captain & Tennille) and Doug Dragon; two sisters, one brother, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
