    Dearest Aunt Eleanore –

    My heart breaks knowing the only Aunt I had left is now gone. I will miss you more than you know, but will always treasure our last visit together. Say hi to everyone for me.

    All my love,

    I’ve known Eleanore for many years. I first met her through our work with Girl Scouts. She has become a dear friend over these many years. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    To Eleanor’s Childrens,
    I have known your Mother for at least 30 yrs., and have always admired her and love her. I remember when she and your father attended daily Mass at St. Bridget. When she was a Girl Scout Leader and she still is a Girl Scout. But most important for me was the last few years when we had coffee at Panera each morning and when I would help her out to her car she always gave me a kiss on the cheek. I will miss her dearly. I am unable to attend the Funeral Mass for her but I will remember her in my prayers. I will also pray for all of you because you have lost a very wonderful Mother and Mother-in-law and Grandma.
    Sally Strumbel

    Just to re-extend the condolences I offered Thursday, when we met at North Park. Be assured that your mother is in my prayers.
    As I also pray that the Lord will strengthen your family, as you mourn your loss.

    Dear Mike, Mary, Tim and families,
    May you find comfort in the memories and love of your mother
    to carry you through this difficult time. I have a childhood memory
    of her to share. At Easter time she would decorate cottage cheese cartons and fill them to give to all of her nieces and nephews and that’s a lot to make up. How thoughtful of her to take the time to make 9 Easter treats in addition to her 4 children. (Now you know the Easter bunny did not bring them.)
    Our thoughts and prayers in the loss of your mother.
    Love, cousin Barb & Dick

My phone is always on – feel free to call any time, for any reason.
    Love, Melissa, Mike, Tim, Allie and Marcus

    If I were to leave all my memories of her here I’d be typing for days. Grandma experienced so much in her life. She was a strong, intelligent, stubborn, loving woman who took taught everything she knew to anyone and everyone, including strangers. My sorrow for losing on of my very best friends has turned into pride because I had such a close relationship with such an extraordinary woman. I can’t help but smile when I think about how many of her friends who I’ve never met asked me if I was “the one who was just married”. I’d always planned on her being there for and participating in my wedding, and am glad she was able.
    I’d like to give my condolences to all her friends. Know that she loved and enjoyed you and your company, and spoke of it often.
    As much as I would give anything to have my friend and grandma back, whenever I want to cry, I think of something she taught me. Something she did that made my life better, stronger, what it is today, and I feel tremendous PRIDE.
    Love you Grammy.

    Thank you to everyone for your love, prayers and sympathy with the loss of a great mother, grandmother, Aunt, friend and hero. She lived a very eventful life and touched so many hearts. She is very missed and will never be forgotten.
