Dear Pam and Penny,
I had it in my head that your mom's funeral was to be on Saturday, so I missed it completely! I am sorry.
I always marveled at her being able to remember all those chemicals and what each one did for my lawn and flower bed. She really was a remarkable lady!
I like to think that she and your dad were instrumental in Kevin's decision to go to college. He always valued their ideas and

Eleanor lived at Madison Pointe Senior Living with us for 3 years or so. I enjoyed Eleanor's laughter, her unique holiday decorating taste, and her meticulousness. I always found a deep appreciation for Eleanor's spunk and will to live. We will deeply miss her at Madison Pointe. Our sympathies to Penny, Pam, and Eleanor's entire family!

Pam & Penny,
I'm so very sorry to hear about the passing of Eleanor. I will cherish the short amount of time that I got to spend with her. Her great sense of humor and many facial expressions will be a memory I will never forget. I'm glad she is now at peace and resting comfortably. Please take some time for yourselves and enjoy all of your memories. Take Care

I want to express my deepest sympathy to Eleanor's family.
She was very much a part of my growing up in Sun Prairie.
I babysat for you when she and Ralph went to Beaver Dam for
the "feed & seed" meetings when you lived on Hillcrest Circle.
Then they built a house next door to my parents, Frank & Joy Kuemmel and
I still had a babysitting job! They came to Vernon and my wedding.
After that we went to the store and purchased farm supplies.

Rec'd such a lovely Christmas card from mom - she mentioned how she still loved to play cards but hard to find any Sheephead players - now she is rejoined with so many of the 'old gang'. I have many fond memories of Eleanor, endless ballet memories of Penny while our parents played cards. Keeping you all in my prayers. She was an amazing lady and friend.
