Aunt Eleanor was always the funny one in our family. She teased and joked and kept us laughing! She loved her family fiercely and always let us know how much. Losing her will leave a giant hole in our family, but we will continue to honor her memory by following her example of love and kindness.

Eleanor was my sister-in-law for almost 42 years. She was always kind to me and welcomed me into the family when Bill and I got married. We never had a disagreement in all those years. She was a wonderful wife, mother and friend who is now in Jesus’s arms. I love you Richard, Tracy and Amy!
