Our dear Eleanor (Elly) was a member of Calvary Temple Seattle when we were pastors in the 1970's and 1980's. She worked in the children's departments with Ruth. She was a great helper and so faithful. We moved in 1985 but returned in 2000 and she was still active in children's ministry. When not with the children she attended my Bible Class, the Crusaders, faithfully.
