Eleanor was a former member of both First Church of God in Mechanicsburg and Young’s United Methodist Church in Mechanicsburg. She enjoyed camping, bingo, crochet, needle point and other crafting activities. Eleanor was fiercely patriotic, never missing an opportunity to fly the American Flag and to decorate for every holiday. She enjoyed traveling and actually traveled around the world. Above all else, Eleanor was a good mother and a wonderful grandmother who loved her grandchildren, nieces and nephews deeply. She looked forward to family gatherings where she spent time with those she loved the most. She will be missed deeply and remembered forever.
