Eleanor was such a character! She always had a funny remark to make or an eyebrow to lift in response to even the most mundane statement. I remember fondly the time we were all at a workshop. The leader asked us to run in place. Eleanor stood up, using her "buggy" (walker), and then went to town, running in place. Her arms went faster than her legs could, but she did it! I heard that, during a recent hospital stay, she proved she could walk by dancing down the hallway. I bet she's dancing up a storm in heaven right now! You will be missed, Eleanor, and you sure did make a wonderful impression on us. Unforgettable, that's what you are!

Neil, Judy and family, I am so sorry to hear of your loved ones passing. I have always had fond memories of Eleanor. She was one of my favorite teachers and was always kind to me. May God wrap you in peace within His comforting arms during this time. Lovingly, Judy Ervin Ritter
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am so sorry to hear this. I really loved this dear lady. I knew when I didn’t get a Christmas card that she was probably in poor health. She had a good life and I’m so glad she was a part of mine for several years.

Eleanor was a wonderful friend whom we enjoyed and respected very much. We knew her from being the owner of the rental properties below where we live in Clarksburg, WV. She was very vivacious, charming, witty, intelligent, and talented individual. We loved her company and over the years we became close friends. We miss her greatly because she became like family to us. We admired the courage she possessed because in her later years, she was very sick, but always had that charming demeanor and smile of a little girt that could brighten your day. We know that she is in a much better place celebrating with her loved ones that proceeded her in death. We give our condolences to the family members remaining because of their loss of a loved one but look forward to celebrating her resting in peace now.
