Connor, Mary Eleanor Buschardt Early Sunday morning November 25, Mary Eleanor Buschardt Connor, a true Southern Lady, passed into the hands of God. She had received wonderful care at Presbyterian Hospital during a brief illness. M.E., as she was known to many of her close friends, leaves behind a sweet, gentle and humorous legacy. She was born to Mr. and Mrs. William C. Buschardt Sr. 91 years ago in Houston, Texas. Mary Eleanor attended the University of Texas
. She majored in education and was a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. Later she moved to Dallas where she and her husband raised their daughter, Georgia Carol, in Highland Park. M.E. was a faithful member of the Dallas Country Club for many years. She was very active in many charitable organizations, and was especially dedicated to Parkland Hospital's, Parkland Auxiliary. She worked diligently to assist in providing toys, candy and other gifts to the children of Parkland for holidays and other special occasions. M.E. was incredibly gracious, generous, and had a wonderful joy for life. Those who knew her well may recall one of her favorite sayings being, "You cannot put on, and off, good manners." She even replied to those annoying automated telephone recordings with, "Thank You." She will be greatly missed by her daughter, Georgia Carol Salaverri, son-in-law Vicente Salaverri, her grandson Daniel Salaverri, and a large, loving family of nieces, nephews, and great nieces & nephews. A truly significant and loving survivor of Mary Eleanor is her nephew, Bud Buschardt of Dallas. Her Memorial Service will be Saturday, December 1, 2012 at her parish church, The Chapel of the Cross - REC, 4333 Cole Avenue, Dallas, Texas at 11:00 AM, with a Reception to follow in The Chapel Parish Hall.
