So sorry for your loss.
Eleanor was so loving and generous.
I remember her giving us snacks when we were little.
I remember her explaining about how the deer that your dad used to hunt and hang in the tree was so healthy and delicious. I became a hunter due to her explanation of the process. Also we used to get in your dad’s was when he was plowing the garden. She used to say ,”Go pick the rocks out of the garden”.
She was a pleasure to know! So are you folks!
God bless

I am so sorry she is gone, I wish I could’ve said goodbye once more. The amount of times I stayed late or just hid in her room to talk to her, it was countless. We talked about so much. She was wild and wanted things her way, and it made me look up to her, seeing how strong she was, and how even on her bad days, she was there just to talk or tell stories. I only met her when I helped take care of her off and on at the home, but with how much we talked I felt like I learned so much about her. We shared recipes and places we went or wanted to go. We talked about love and about her late husband, and she was so excited for me to get to marry my husband. She shared with me this little restaurant that was amazing and I’ll continue to go to when I can! And she was always trying to feed me, which I very much allowed her to sneak me cookies. I hope to see the Grand Canyon one day for her, she told me it was the last place on her bucket list to visit. I am so grateful to have gotten to meet her. Rest In Piece Eleanor ❤️❤️❤️
