Eleanor and I shared two of her grandchildren (Seth & Josh). We spent many hours together at various baseball fields. Through these many hours she and I became very good friends. My memories of her love and kindness will never be forgotten. She was an excellent and very understanding mother-in-law to my son and I’ll always be greatful to her. Her memories will linger with our family forever.

I had the pleasure of working with Eleanor for many years when she was with William E. Wood & Associates. One could say "to know Eleanor was to like her". Always a sweet kind lady with a huge heart.
RIP my friend!
