Brenda, Debbie, and Kathy--we have fond memories of your mom. She seemed to always have a smile on her face, except maybe when she was looking for Brenda and I was probably looking for Cheryl. She was a good neighbor and mother. We know that she loved you very much. We are praying for you and your families. Love, Doug and Margaret Mullins

For Eleanor's daughters and family, I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I had not seen Eleanor since I was married in 1960 and left for Michigan, but I remember some good times with Eleanor when I was young. Among the memories are her playing guitar in a group that included our Aunt Elsie. Remembering Eleanor brings back memories of her smile and fun comments when my Dad would tease her, and a special memory of her letting me come into her room and see some of her collections. I know you all will miss Eleanor and send condolences to her beautiful daughters and granddaughter.
