I had the good fortune of working with Eleanor some 40 years ago. She was one of the kindest, most thoughtful and pleasant people I've had the pleasure of knowing. For many years after we no longer worked together, Eleanor would remember my birthday with a phone call. I was heart broken by the news of her passing. Condolences to her daughter Maria and grand daughter Christine and the rest of her wonderful family and friends. I will forever cherish her friendship.

Eleanor was such a lovely lady. I took my taxes to her firm for the last 6 years. I also went to St. Mary's. We always had lots to talk about-not taxes. Will miss seeing her smiling face.
