Eleanor led a full and fun life. Being a triplet, she always was getting in to something. She was very passionate about pro-football and when it was game time you had to be in your seat and ready to go. She was a true Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco Forty-Niner's fan. She also loved Disney and Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Among other things she enjoyed reading ghost stories, crocheting, and spending time in her garden. But what she truly loved were her grand babies and her family.

Eleanor was preceded in death by her parents, two husbands, a son, Paul "Dan" Moore, triplet brothers - John "Jack" W. Serena, and Harry "Bob" R. Serena, and brothers, Carl and Elmer Serena.
