Guest Book & Memories
February 14th, 2021
Special memories of Elli and her cheerfulness. Always fun to play tennis with and share stories at birthday luncheons and visiting after tennis. I remember her laughter and her special talent, photography. I remember going to Ryerson to see one of the exhibitions of her nature photography. Years after we stopped playing, I ran into one of her daughters, who asked me for the phone number of Joanie Halper. When I got home, I checked my old tennis schedules and sent it to her. Hopefully they had a chance to reconnect. Were in person Shiva calls a possibility, I would definitely visit and offer hugs. I would be happy to make a donation in Elli's name but unfortunately, I do not have an address where to send the acknowledgment. Phyllis Adams
