My sincere condolences to the Elward family. So many fond memories of your mom from our boyhood days … and yes, especially her chocolate fudge. She was a great lady with a beautiful heart and I’m sure she is now enjoying the fruits of her faithfulness to God and family.

My sincere condoleances to the whole family, especially the 5 sons and their wifes and childten and to Mary, Don and Bill. It is very hard to lose a sweet lady as aunt Eileen was. Great that you ciuld be with her for so long. I will NEVER forget the Thankgivings I was invited to or the 4th of July's. As Mary's friend it felt as if I received the same love from her and uncle Paul. Aunt Eileen will be well remembered. May she rest in peace.

“Aunt Eileen” was so much a part of my childhood…a great model of a strong woman with a great laugh and sharp humor. A unique elegance that comes from strong character rather than outer adornments. So glad to have had her as a part of my formative years. Sending love to you all, Marla
