Ellenor was such an amazing lady and always so thoughtful to all our family. We appreciate so much her letters to our Mother Jewell (Hendren) Earl, her cousin. I know she will be missed by all, but well remembered by all who loved her.

Grandma Ellenor was the most loving kind hearted person we have ever known. She always had awesome stories to share with us. She truly loved to play pinochle with my husband Joe. We will always remember her possitive attitude and pink clothes. We will deeply miss her and know that she lived a long and meaningful life but we know she will be with the Lord above.

i saw ellenor once when i was about 8 years old and she visited us at independence, oregon. later when she was searching for relatives, she got in touch with me. traded information with me and my grandchildren, kirsten chepeus, sarah hicks, and wendy lilly. sarah and i visited at rock a way and wendy and sean stayed all night with ellenor. kirsten and ellenor sent many e mails to each other, tracing relatives. my grandmother was laura ware lester. my mother was cora ann lester brasier and i am elma ruth brasier dixon. some way, i was a relative and ellenor included me in her circle of relatives. love to her family. i wish i had lived closer to ellenor and became better acuainted. but so glad my 3 g daughters were in touch with her--we are short of relatives. my only brother, clyde brasier, died several years ago. no sisters. love to all your family. e. ruth dixon

Years ago,Ellenor and Dutch were my grandmother's neighbors and Ellenor ended up looking after her in a group home because my parents lived 200 miles away and couldn't be there often. She was a very good friend to my whole family for several years. A very kind lady! Dennis Prescott
