On May 22, 2023, Eleanore Ruth (Venable) Wahby transitioned from this earth to a spirit beyond. Eleanore was the daughter of the late Webster M. Venable and the late Jennie (Mozier) Venable. The dear sister of Janet (Venable) Kitrel and the late Melba (Venable) Cabanellas. Dear mother of Deborah (Wahby-Roubanian) Farrar (Thomas Farrar Jr.), Daniel Wahby (Robin Griswold Wahby), Angela Wahby (Monte Landis), and Phillip Wahby (Amanda Mahler Gebel). Dear Grandmother of John Roubanian, Sonya Roubanian, Taline (Roubanian) Stemmler, Raffi Roubanian, Sarkes Roubanian, Phillip Wahby Jr., and Olivia Wahby. Dear sister-in-law, aunt, great aunt, cousin, great-grandmother, and friend to many.
Eleanore was a member of Unity of St Louis-South congregation. She enjoyed cooking, crafts with her great-grandchildren, listening to jazz, entertaining at home, feeding the masses of friends and family members (no one ever left hungry). Eleanore loved fresh-cut flowers and almost always had a bouquet on her kitchen table, her favorite gathering place for friends and family. Eleanore enjoyed talking and especially talking on the telephone with all her friends and loved ones. Eleanore loved sending cards and picking out the perfect one to send. She loved sending her special messages on holidays, birthdays, or for no reason at all. She loved brightening the lives of everyone around her. She will be missed by many but her spirit and life lessons live on in each of us.
