Murray Enkin wrote:"Dear family and friends, I am devastated at having to tell you that my loving, much loved wife, Eleanor died, died today less than a week before our 72ndanniversary. She lived fully and joyously for 93 years, so she did not die young. She lived life fully, loved her family and friends totally, and was as fully loved in return. Her end was rapid, peaceful, and, in its own way, as beautiful as her life. She died in my arms, as I kissed her. She will live on, in my memory, the memories of our children, our grandchildren, our great-grandchild, and so many of you."
Eleanor was a talented photographer, skilled at portraits and a pioneer of birth photography. She was a speaker, research bibliographer and a wonderful writer.

Everyone who met Eleanor will remember her as a caring listener, welcoming and endlessly nurturing.
