I doubt if Elenors family will know me but i did want to share some of my memories. I am the daughter of Leon and Iris Schreck of Faribault. Elenor and Stan befriended my family when we moved to Faribault in 1961 and joined Trinity Lutheran Church. They were probably our first friends here in town. I remember spending afternoons at the Fields house, sitting in their front porch playing. Elenor was such a loving lady. With no children of her own she treated me like a princess and I enjoyed every minute. I still have a picture of the two of us when i was probably around 6 years old standing in front of our home. I just have nothing but fond memories of both Elenor and Stan. My mother passed away in 1995 and my dad passed away just this passed March. I am sorry for your loss but am happy that both Elenor and Stan have reached their final home in heaven. May your faith comfort you at this time of loss.
