I wish to express my condolences to Eleanor's family. I so enjoyed working with Eleanor as her Realtor, selling her home (on Valleyview?) and assisting her in getting into her townhome on McKinley Avenue. We had many nice chats after she moved in to Quail Hollow and I always enjoyed seeing what artistic endeavors she had been up to. May a lifetime of memories bring you peace and comfort.

Dear Lynn and Family,
I remember Eleanor with love in my heart for her. As I was a very young girl, maybe 14, Eleanor let me help her with cooking and household work in an environment I cherished. We were "at home" on the farm and the cooking for Charlie and other hired hands was our job. I loved being a "hired hand" and Eleanor was a patient and thoughtful friend and teacher. May she rest in peace.

To my 'nuther mother',
I so enjoyed the wonderful times we spent together, whether it was making cookies in Arbon for harvest, washing windows (just because it needed doing) or standing together at the YWCA oil painting class. I know you're in a better place, but we sure miss you!
Love, Tina

To Eleanor's family,
I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was such a loving, caring person. I got to know her when she moved to Quail Hollow, next door to my mom and dad and I. She was a great friend and neighbor. We had many talks and she loved to talk about her children and what they were doing. She loved you all very much. I have missed seeing her smile and visiting with her since she moved to Idaho Falls. I hope you can find comfort from knowing that she lived a live of service and caring to those around her.
My sincere sympathy,
Ann Adams

Dear Dan and Family, We want you to know you are in our Thoughts and Prayers - today and always. May God lift you up and hold you in the palm of his hand to guide you through your grief. We did not know your Mother ~ but from your stories, she and your dad were strong in their Christian faith. The gorgeous Mosaic of Jesus that she made for her church was a tribute to her beliefs. She Left on the Wings of Angels and is at peace. God's Blessings ~ Love, Alan, Patty and Family
