Aunt Eleanor was married to her soul-mate husband John Crawford, which was my Uncle John and my mother’s brother. Aunt Eleanor was always a very special Aunt. She was always funny, smart and great to be around. She was the life of our family get-togethers. She and I communicated by phone after this past Christmas where she wanted me to send her photos of her and Uncle John, which I did. Aunt Eleanor is now in heaven. She will be remembered forever. Love you Aunt Eleanor!

Eleanor was a delightful woman to know . She was a friend of my father Wally Timmons who passed away last October and my mother Nancy Timmons. She was always such an outgoing woman always left you with a smile. We will miss her.

I always called Eleanor my movie star. Such a gracious lady. I will truly miss her. Even in her passing she thought of those less fortunate. She continues to shine from above. Love, Peace and Blessings to her family and friends.

Sad to hear of Aunt Eleanor’s passing, she was always fun an ‘the life of the party’. She loved to tell us stories of her life experiences, and we enjoyed listening…so glad she was able to have a long, fulfilled life. RIP
