I was so sorry to hear about Eleanor's passing. I know she is with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I was very privileged to know this great lady for a short time. She will be missed greatly; but we know we will see her someday in the Presence of God Almighty.

May God bless the family of Sister Eleanor during this time of grief and bereavement. May you find comfort in this, she is not dead but resting in the bosom of Jesus. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Be comforted and know that God loves you and will keep you in your time of need.

God bless all family members and loved ones

You had a way of making every person you came across feel special.The best characteristic of you was the amount of time you devoted to each person. You gave us all the most precious gift in life, which was your love. We will all miss you. love, Morgan

To the Family of Sis Eleanor Phelps: Thank you so much for sharing Sis Eleanor with us. Ministry is such a demanding and life giving call and sometimes we dont see family as much as we would like, but when you love what you do as much as she did it was worth it all. She has such a huge family at the Gates of Glory Church and we want to Love and Embrace You as she did us. God Bless You
