So sorry to learn of Elinors death. She loved my husband and was a great help to him in his years of ministry at First Congregational. We loved to stop in Newberry to see her our way north. She certainly was one of a kind. Loved her humor and energy in all her endeavors. Her spirit was contagious.
Blessings to all.

Elinor was such a vibrant person and always a Southern lady. I knew her from her church in Ocala, Florida. I especially remember a luncheon at her home. Always the hostess, she was exuberant and so hospitable. She truly loved life. I will miss her and wish peace and good memories of her for her family.
