    Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Kerry. She was a great and thoughtful lady! Andy & Abbey enjoyed all the $2 bills she sent them for their birthday.

    Sorry to hear about Eleanor. We just lived about 3 and half miles from each other during HS days in Hunter and both of us went to HS with her, graduating one year before she did.. We also attended the same church in Hunter. Always enjoyed Eleanor ( Nawny, as we called her ). Last times we visited was at the GSC in Arthur, when I played piano music for the residents during their coffee hours. Our deep sympathy to you, Terry, and all your relatives. Had another commitment today or would have been at the service. Thinking of you. Our love and God Bless !! A memorial will be left in her honor at the GSC. Evelyn and Abby Johnson

    Rocklin CAAunt Eleanor will truly be missed. I remember her for aways having the coolest hats at church! And her and Mom sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee and talking for hours! I loved to go to her house and look at all the things she had collected over the years. After I moved away and had my own kids, she even remember them on their birthdays and at Christmas each year. She was a very special lady, with a wonderful laugh and a twinkle in her eye. We will all miss her. Shane, Sarah, Eric and Austin
