  5. Brenda Mazuca says:

    To Kevin, Kerri, Bryan, and Kelli and your families, we extend our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your precious Mother. I remember Aunt Eleanor as a tall and beautiful woman with a warm personality and great sense of humor. She was an amazing sister to my Mom, Anne Mae. Even though they lived in different states, they remained close, burning up the phone lines with long conversations to keep up with each other’s lives. I could always tell when my Mom was talking to one of her siblings on the phone because she would slip into her Irish brogue. It was enchanting!

    Aunt Eleanor made numerous trips to Michigan for our wedding and our family funerals to be at her sister’s side. We are eternally grateful. We hope you are comforted in knowing she is with the Lord now where there is no more tears or pain, and she will be in the presence of her loved ones that have gone before her. May God bless you with comfort and peace and sweet memories of the good times together. Brenda and Danny Mazuca

    Kevin, Brian, Kerri and Kelli,
    I’m so sorry for the loss of your Mom. My Mom, Anna Mae, had good memories of growing up on the farm with Eleanor as they were close in age. My Mom told me about one special memory. The family had a new chicken coop which was not yet being used. The “little kids” took it over and played school in the coop. Mom was the oldest of the little kids so she was the teacher. Eleanor, Elaine, Maureen, Lee and Kenny were the students. Mom would give them assignments to work on and they would dutifully complete them. She told me about this many times so I know it was special for her and the rest of the little kids. I’m sure they are having a grand time together again in Heaven. Take care of yourselves and each other. May the good memories of your Mom bring you comfort.
