We send our deepest sympathies and our most sincere condolences to everyone in Eleanors family. Ellie leaves a wonderful legacy by living a life that only she could live. A life filled with love, vigor, humor and resolve. She will be fondly remembered by everyone fortunate enough to have met her. She reared a family of 8 wonderful children and enjoyed seeing many of them having families of their own. She has been blessed and honored by all of her children. She touched the lives of many people in this world and she will be greatly missed by all. It is appropriate that you grieve her passing now, but make sure to celebrate Ellies life every day moving forward. Eleanor lived her life to the fullest and she would want every one of you to do the same. Our prayer is that God blesses all of you and that He lessens the pain and heartache that youre feeling for your loss. It is appropriate that you grieve her passing now, but please be sure to celebrate Ellies life every day moving forward. Eleanor lived her life to the fullest and she would want every one of you to do the same. The Owen Family

Im very sorry to hear about the news of your mothers (grandmothers) (great- grandmothers) passing. Im glad that I had the privilege of knowing your her. She was beautiful, smart, funny, kind, sweet, thoughtful, and so much more. It saddened me so much when I heard about her passing, and I immediately thought about all her family who will now be grieving her exsitence. I know your hearts are broken, and I wish I had the magic words to take away all the pain. But I can only share in your pain and sorrow, and I can only say a prayer for your mothers soul and your familys comfort and healing.
