bullet  General Notes:

From a Funeral document:
Eleanor's greatest joys were her loving husband, Jack, married 67 years, and her children and their spouses, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and beloved friends. Many of her beautiful quilts, and embroideries, of which she found great enjoyment are treasured by her loved ones.

The Gifts of Caring
In memory of Eleanor Elaine (Patterson) Richmond by Elaine (Richmond) Campbell.

The woman that you care for, whose eyesight has grown dim-
Once-brunette locks are thinned with grey, Who faintly smiles with lips now thin-

Was once a vibrant Mother, young, with boys and girl in tow,
Dancing, singing, reading rhymes
with loving eyes aglow.

Her fragile hands are still now, she walks with a halted gait.
Her boys and girl have all grown up.
Her memories are faint.

It's a special gift you've given, your kindness and your touch
Your patience and your gentle ways-
All appreciate so much.

Have you received a gift as well? A softened heart, refined?
A wiser view of loving others?
A glimpse of God's own mind?

Spoken words now fail us, our hearts may brim with tears,
But know both sides of caring,
Hold gifts we'll keep for years.


Eleanor married John (Jack) Edward Richmond, son of Charles Sylvester Richmond and Sylvia Rhea Bryan, on 30 Nov 1947 in Hayesville Methodist Church, Hayesville, Ohio. (John (Jack) Edward Richmond was born on 3 Nov 1926 in Akron, Summit County, Ohio and died on 16 Nov 2014 in Colorado.)
