Elnora enjoyed reading (especially her bible), crocheting, church, arts, crafts, helping others, and being a foster grandmother (Winn Elementary School).  She made the following statement for her class of 1953 supplement book:  “When I look at my life today, I don’t know that is much different.  I have God in my life, friends, and a very large extended family.  I have been adopted by my son-in-law’s family as mom, grandma, and great grandma.  I have a great big family that love and care for me.  To be with them and my Lord…what more can I ask for?”
