We wil miss Ms. Eleanor and her witty ways and smile. She loved coming to the Petersburg “Pickin ‘n Grinnin” when she was able. Always brought a covered dish to help with the meal. Was in her 90’s even then! She was a sweet lady. Our condolences go out to her family.

Wow, 100 years young!! Just imagine all the changes Miss Eleanor witnessed. My deepest sympathy to the family. Miss Eleanor was a sweet sweet lady. She and my late mother n law, Letha Thompson, were great friends. I’m sure Miss Eleanor will truly be missed.
Deborah, Jill, and Richard,
We are so sorry for your loss.
Aunt Eleanor was so fun to be around! I remember her and my Granny Evelyn, and Aunt Agnes (Aggie) riding around together. None of which were tall enough to see very well over the steering wheel! LOL I’m sorry for your loss, because I know she will be missed. What an awesome life she lived! She’s now with her beloved Jim’s! May God bless you all.
Miss Eleanor had the sweetest smile and a sassy spirit. She always lifted my spirits when I was around her. I’ve known her all my life and will miss her so much. She was a special part of the Covenant Manor family.
Great Lady. Great family. sorry to hear of her passing. She did life correct.
