We're so sorry to hear about Eleanor's passing. Our entire family was terribly fond of her, and my children will always treasure the memories of summertime at her house, and the little trinkets she gave them when we visited. -Carrie and Scott Cummings

I lost my grandmother, Georgia Rickerson, in January. I always loved the church 'Coffee Bunch.' Also,many wonderful holidays were spent together. I will never forget the Xmas board decoration with the Simpsons and Eleanor and Jackie.

I asked her what she wanted Santa to bring her for Christmas several years ago and she said "a bridge". So, I built her a bridge from her back porch to my back porch so that she didn't have to walk down over the hill from her yard to mine. She said she never crossed that bridge without thinking how great that was. Jim Fenton

She was my homeroom teacher,when Eisenhower was sworn into office. She took our whole class across the street to her house to watch the program on her TV. That was in the 50's. A wonderful and fun teacher. Anna Wilke
