She loved to travel with her good friend Joe Hudak, and spend time with neighbors and friends. Most important to Eleanor were her relationships with family and friends. Eleanor was blessed to see her family grow over the years. So fitting was this role for her that many grandchildren called her “Grandma Great”. She loved being there for special occasions, and enjoyed the warm holidays spent with her family. Her kindness and love could be felt by everyone whom she came into contact with and she had a way of making sure everyone left with a smile. She was truly an amazing woman, and her family will look back with fond memories- of her teaching, her kindness, and the lessons that she instilled in those closest to her. Her legacy will live on in our hearts for generations to come.
