My deepest condolences to our dear Eleanor's family. We would all love to keep this lady with us for ever as she was such a pleasure to know, but life challenges all of us at some point and that is when we have to have faith in God’s promises and say goodbye to our love ones and let them be taken care by our lord. Peace and prayers to you the family and friends of Eleanor. - Posted by: Monique mayner (Friend and pass dietary aid from Emerson ) on: Aug 31, 2023
We are so very sorry hear of Eleanor’s passing. She was a pleasure to talk with each time we went to the care home to visit my parents. She had such a great sense of humour and infectious laughter. - Posted by: Rick and Brenda Sadler (Friend) on: Jul 02, 2023

Eleanor was truly one of a kind. Fun, fun-loving and funny. She fit in anywhere and people instantly loved her including myself. We have lost a good one. My condolences to Kris, Dwight, Joyce and family - Posted by: Kelly Seward (Friend ) on: Jul 01, 2023
Kristy Lou, Dwight and families, I was so sorry to hear of Eleanor’s passing. She was so kind to Dad when my Mom died. We had great times when I visited Dad and I certainly remember our last golf game together. What fun! Thinking of you.
