We never met grandma but heard many wonderful stories about her. She lived a long life that included raising her son's, enjoying each and everyone of her grandchildren, plus extended family members. She was a wonderful cook ,giving samples to all. She had a kind heart that was radiant by those who told us about her. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Dilts family.

My sincere sympathy and condolences are extended to Dave, Harold, Bruce, and their families. Eleanor was a special lady and I have several fond memories of her. I think she is the last of a generation of friends that had an influence on my life during my frequent visits to Indiana. I especially like her brownie recipe and make them often. She will be missed. ❤️

Dear Dave, To you and all your family... I'm so very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. But, oh! She is in a better place! I used to stop in on occasions when I went walking, and I remember her well when we worked at J. C. Penney. She was a lovely lady. Prayers for you all. God's Peace, Lynn
