Eleanor was very dedicated to her faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

She was a member of the Trinity Bible Church here in Portland, Oregon, up until her passing.

The family of Eleanor wishes to thank Parkview Assisted Living for caring for our beloved Mother, Grand Mother, and Great Grand Mother. We would also like to thank our mother, Eleanors daughter-in-law Audrey Miller for her sacrifices over the past decade to make sure Eleanor had everything she needed and was healthy and content. This took a lot of patience and strength to accomplish and was a very generous and kind thing to undertake on behalf of our family.


A Memorial will be held for Eleanor by the family.
