My family would always make visits to El Paso to visit Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Tex. I have fun filled memories of playing with my cousins, Tommy and Kathy. Even though we can not make it to the funeral please know the family will be in our thoughts and prayers. I know Aunt Eleanor is sharing special moments with Mom, her sister in Heaven. Love to you all.

We were four sisters. Now only two remain, Sybil and June. They all called me June bug. Eleanor joined Jim and I for annual reunions with the US Tide AM125 group and we enjoyed traveling with her, seeing the sights. She is remembered by the group and they send their prayers to the family. She was loved by them all. We cherish our many memories of her. Love you "ayay". Martha June Gardner(Carleton)

through the passing of many years,those of us who are up n years, sometimes often over look the many of the very best memories.but for some of the good memories we have of Eleanore would be well remembered today as if it were only yesterday. would be the days we all had together in the old place, in the party room.we, meaning the entire group. as we just set around and took some time to visit each other as a family.then as time went on , we would break for a pleasant game of family pool.some cool refreshing drinks, and to follow with music ,music music .friend ship laughter and fun:

I have lots of fond memories of Aunt Eleanor. The earliest memory I have is sitting in her lap when I was three or four years old, reading the newspaper with her. We are very sorry that we can't make it to the memorial services. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
