   Eleanor was a home maker and when she was able attended Liberty Baptist Church at Amherstdale.  She enjoyed gardening, cooking, canning, and watching game shows especially The Price Is Right.  She loved gospel music and watching Hee Haw.  Eleanor had a servant’s spirit, wanting to feed and give to everyone.  She put her children’s wants and needs above her own and was known for her kindness to others.
