    She loved to laugh… Her kids meant everything to her.. And she loved sandwiches from Jimmy John’s…. I think she did more puzzles than any other person I know. Once she went digital it was all over. Game after game… with Television in between.. I’m sure she’ll still be with us at our future family gatherings.. Love you Eleanor ❤️

    My sister, she loved her 60’s Oldies music. When we were driving some where I always had it on for her. We would sing and laugh, and I would quiz her on the Artist name, she always got them right!! I remember being young, living in Garden Grove, CA and her and I were in the family room playing the record player and we would dance. She loved to do word puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, and painting on her iPad. Her favorite color was Purple. …

    I have such happy memories of my sweet cousin. Eleanor. I remember how excited we would be knowing Pete & Eleanor were coming over to visit all three Tias on Manzanar.. The boys, Alex & Tiger, were toddlers & Laura was just a baby. Eleanor was always happy, smiling, & laughing. Her energy was kind & welcoming and I gravitated to her. She would spend time talking to me and that made me feel like a special & important six year old. She was just such a lovely person.
    Rest in peace Sweet Cousin.
