Born to a small but loving family, Elenor was raised to love life and never take anything she had for granted. She was a very loving and caring daughter and sister who grew to be a wonderful mother of four.
Elenor was a member of First Presbyterian Church of Savanna and never missed a chance to sit down with a cup of coffee and catch up with family and friends. A loyal and lifelong fan of both Elvis Presley and Daniel O'Donnell, Elenor loved to sit and listen to her favorite singers while dancing along.
She is survived by her sister Ruby Wright, her children John Henry Yenney of Olathe, Kan., Charles Paisley Jr. (Teresa) of Thomson, Harmon Paisley (Mindy) of Sandwich, and Emily Onnen of Manila, Ark. She will be forever remembered and loved by her 11 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.
An absolutely beloved and revered mother and grandmother, Elenor was preceded in death by her parents, Harmon and Margarete Yenney; brother, Harmon Yenney; and sisters, Margarete and Clara Yenney.
