I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I did not know her really well. On her visits to the farm and a trail ride or two when she rode Robin, will always be in my memories. Hugs.

My deepest sympathy on the passing of your mother Eleanor. I have a lot of good memories of Eleanor since early 1950’s when they moved from New Liskeard to the farm in Hudson Township (only about 11/4 miles from our farm). Many visits with her at the cottage on Bartle Lake & at her home in Hudson Township. Thanks Bonnie for taking Eleanor out of the hospital to join the Scott family gathering at the New Liskeard beach on August 8, 2021
