Eleanor, the youngest daughter of Ruth and Gilbert Smith passed away on October 26, 2011. She was the last surviving sibling.  

Ruth's story continues though, through her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.  

We are forever grateful that Grandma wrote her Books of Remembrance for several years in the 1920's, giving us a glimpse into her life and the lives of her children, my aunts and uncles.


  1. My condolences on the passing of your dear mother. It is never easy and I hope you find continual comfort.

    I have so enjoyed Ruth's diaries, and appreciate you sharing them with the world. This is an example of the best of what the internet can be!

    God bless you and yours,


  2. My condolences on the loss of your mother and also your Aunt Marjorie, although these thoughts come years after their separate deaths. I feel as if I got to know them each, just a little, by their additions to and explanations of their mother's diary.
