Memories

What a special lady Eleanor was. Of all the great qualities she had the one that I will always remember is that I NEVER heard her say a bad word about anyone else. Something we should all try to do more of in life. Every visit with her was so much fun. Hearing stories of her "boys" and of growing up and the sadness in her eyes every time she told us of the day her family got rid of her favorite horse when she was just a little girl. I feel so lucky that God made my lifes path cross with hers and I got to meet this wonderful lady Eleanor Wolfe. She will truely be missed by all. Dave

Eleanore was so Special to me! She always was so appreciative of anything anyone did for her. I loved visiting her and spending time hearing her "life stories". I will truly miss her. I am sad that I wasn't able to be in Minnesota with you, but it has been good being in Texas with my parents. My sympathy to all of you, Love, Sally

Memories

I was twelve years old when my family moved in next door to Leonard and Ellie Wolfe. They became unofficial grandparents to me and many other neighborhood children. Leonard always kept a record of how tall we were by marking it down on a wall inside of the garage and writing it into a book. A few months after we moved in, a tornado warning was issued and I spent the time hiding out at Wolfe's house since my parents were still at work. When My dad came home he called oved to Wolfe's and asked if this was the Murphy's (he thought I was at the Murphys) and Ellie responded by saying, "no this is the Calahans!" When my dad realized what he had done, he called back to Wolfe's and we all got a good laugh out of that. It was with deep sorrow I learned of Eleanors death, however I know that she is in a better place, once again with her Lord and her beloved Leonard.

Memories

Ellie was one of a kind. I will miss her immensely. Every day that I was at work I looked forward to seeing her (especially on Friday!!!) I looked forward to seeing Ellie because she was always smiling and happy. I was so proud to know her, I would brag to people that I had the privelege to know a lady that was over a hundred years old ! I always told them she was sharp as a tack and funny! She always had something terribly witty to say. If one were to meet her they would NEVER guess she was over 100.She always proved my point that age is just a state of mind. She always asked about my kids. We talked alot about boys because like her, I have two older boys and a little tag-along.It was not only my honor to fix her hair every friday at Good Sam, it was a true honor and joy to know her as a person. Peace be with Ellie and with you her family.
