Eleanor Harbula made her transition on Christmas eve, at 8:30 p.m. surrounded by family and friends after suffering a stroke a week earlier.
Elly was a champion tennis player in her prime - 13th in the country - and a teaching pro by trade through most of her life. She was still teaching at 90. As many people have commented since her passing, to be around Elly was to be around laughter.
The memorial service will be held at the Sepulveda Unitarian Universalist Society at 9550 Haskell Ave., North Hills, CA 91343. on January 6th, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. People are encouraged to dress colorfully - no black please. For more information contact Patrick Harbula at 805-469-9847 or Patrick@magicofthesoul.com.
