Obituary for Elnora M. Findlater

Elnora M. Lewis Findlater, 97, of Culpeper, VA, the eldest of nine, was born to the late James and Ella Green Lewis on March 23, 1921 in Culpeper, VA. She was called from her home on James Lane to an eternal rest at 6:40 am peacefully on Sunday, December 16, 2018.

Elnora was educated in the Culpeper School System, prior to relocating to Philadelphia, PA. She welcomed her sister Ruth to come to live with her and to receive training in the food service industry, which equipped Ruth to return home and find employment. Elnora returned home in the early 1980’s to care for her mom and sister.

While living in Philadelphia PA, Elnora worked in the Food Service Industry. She managed food services for Temple University. One of the proudest moments was her managing meals for the Philadelphia Eagles Professional Football team during their summer camps.

Elnora reunited as a member of the Mount Olive Baptist Church, Culpeper, VA, and served as a missionary until her health decline.

Her nieces and nephews remember when they were young, and Aunt Elnora would come home to visit and prepare dishes they had not heard of. They loved when she invited them to dinner. She became known as the family’s “Eldest Matriarch”.

Preceding her in death were her parents; three brothers, William, Jack, and James; and four sisters, Novella Hill, Ruth Lewis, Marjorie Andrews, and Louise Tutt.

She will be fondly remembered for her sweet loving quiet spirit. She leaves to cherish her memories; one brother, Stanley Lewis; two sisters-in-law; Florence Lewis and Minnie Lewis; one godson, Rodney Jones; special nephews, Jack Lewis, Ahmed Massellme and William Lewis; devoted nieces, Michelle Tutt and Yvonne Lewis; a special caregiver, Sheila Richards; special friends, Teresa Hamilton and Louise Crawford; and a host of other loving devoted nieces, nephews, family and friends.
