We met Eleanor through our jobs at the Minnesota Zoo while working with Reinhardt. She shared his interests and they became friends with many of us. We both have moved numerous times over the past decades, but it was a friendship that always remained. It was always a joy to visit them and we will treasure our memories of those times.

Eleanor had a loving, beautiful spirit and dedicated her life to serving those around her. I especially appreciated her kindness and instinct for doing just the right thing at just the right time. She lived her younger years with enthusiasm and her older years with grace. I shall miss her dearly and cherish the memories.

The upcoming holidays were some of Eleanor's favorites: Thanksgiving and Christmas. If she could write this message now, for us to read, she would say: Be thankful, eat a healthy meal (always saying grace beforehand), and, afterward, take a brisk walk---no matter what kind of weather! --Louise Bixby.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
