Elinor was my classmate all our growing-up years in Squirrel Hill. I remember her kindness, modesty, and quiet sense of humor. I'm glad to read about her fulfilling family life, and can so imagine how much she treasured and was treasured by her husband, children and grandchildren. May her memory be a blessing.

So sad to learn of Cousin Elinor\'s passing. We had hoped for better news, as did everyone. Elinor was a wonderful, caring, kind person, always doing good for others. We will miss her. The prophet Isaiah wrote \'to live in the hearts we leave behind is truly not to die\'. May your good memories sustain you, Nate, Racille, Mindy, Jeff, and families. Rest in Peace, Dear Elinor.
