I will truly miss Elnora but will never forget her “well kid” greeting. She always laughed and made everyone around her laugh too. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. A very kind and gracious lady. We were blessed to have known her.

I have worked at Cedarhurst of Shiloh for many years as a caregiver. Throughout my career there I have never known a time without Elnora. She quickly became one of my favorite people, and a huge highlight of my day. I looked forward to our daily talks, and her overly infectious laugh. She was more than a resident to me, she was a dear friend. I love her endlessly and I can not explain how sad I am to no longer see her every single day, I am truly lucky to have had the chance to know her. My deepest condolences to Jan & Rick, her children. She talked about her family so often, and loved you so much.
