She had a keen sense of humor and loved to entertain with tricks she learned from her mother and father. She frequently would break out in song, many humorous, and favorites from the 40’s era. Dancing with her husband kept her young and she always had a bright smile when dancing. A strong social life and family was her hallmark. In her own words, “she was a keeper!” A dedicated mother, Elinore is survived by four children: Walter Jr., Diane Gross, Cheryl Heinz and Brad; her cherished grandchildren: Joe, Kimberley, Brian, Meredy, JW, Mike, Jessica, and Rachel and nine great grandchildren, all of whom she was especially fond of.
