"Her genuine, loving spirit
will be missed by all who knew her."

Eleanor E. (DeMarco) Natta passed away with her four daughters at her side. Her struggle with colon cancer is over and she is now watching over us from heaven.
Eleanor's greatest gift was her love and compassion for others.
Many arrived at the Natta farm unannounced and were always welcomed with open arms and a seat at the kitchen table to enjoy some of Eleanor's wonderful cooking or baked goods. Each would share their hopes, dreams, and worries to a nurturing ear. Eleanor was a woman of much wisdom and always knew what the "other" needed. She loved her family and friends unconditionally.
Eleanor loved good food, good music and a good bargain. Her garden was where she went to unwind, tending to her tomato plants and flowers.
She was full of energy and full of life. We miss you Mom !
Eleanor is survived by her four daughters and son-in-laws, Nicoletta Natta-Graf and Steve Graf, Madeline and Dan McGrew, Lillie and Kirby Lott, and Mary and Blake Weishaar; her seven grandsons, Ryan, Nic, Victor, Chris, Brian, Matthew, and Andrew; and her granddaughter-in-law, Meagan.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Louis, in 1989.
Memorial contributions can be made in her name to The Ray Hickey House, 2112 E Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver 98661.
A memorial service will be held at St. James Catholic Church, 218 West 12th Street, Vancouver, Fri., May 20, 2011 at 4:00 p.m.
