One could tell by the smiles and the laughs that Elinor had fun while square dancing. As one of the guest callers for Track II Singles I can remember that Elinor would be among the first dancers on the floor when the music started. I'm thinking of your family especially today and hoping that time will bring you comfort. My sincere sympathy.

I knew Elinor from square dancing. She was a member of my club - Circulators. She was president for Track II Singles Club for many years. She was always energetic, enthusiastic, and willing to help and promote our dancing. Her daughter and son-in-law, Eloise and Don Breiding were also members of Circulators. Many happy memories were made during our dancing and other social activities.
