George (son of Joseph Janicek of Smithtown NY) and I truly enjoyed meeting Eleanor at the Cleveland and Colorado Janicek reunions. We thought she made a splendid family matriarch. I am truly sorry for your loss. I lost George this past November 18, 2018. They likely have joined all the other wonderful Janiceks who have gone before us. We have a wonderful group of guardian angels there! Stephanie Janicek, wife of nephew George.

The memory I have of Aunt Eleanor was a person of love for all,empathy for all,and an independent spirit which was an example for all. I will miss her , love her , and continue to smile when I think of her. And to know I was so lucky to have her in my life.
