Eleanor Lee Collins Hardy died Wednesday at her home at 3 McKnight Place after a short illness. She was 96, according to an obituary in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
"Although she claimed she had no talents, her actions spoke otherwise. She made friends easily everywhere she went. She traveled widely. She enjoyed a wide circle of friends, a foursome of which called themselves the Golden Girls, who enjoyed 40 years of bridge. She knew the words to almost every song she'd ever heard and sang them with gusto everywhere she went."
A Memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at , 1200 S. Lindbergh Blvd., followed by a reception and visitation at the Church.
