Elnor Louise Reid

November 13, 1923 ~ March 20, 2014

Elnor Louise Reid, of Port Angeles, WA, passed away on March 20, 2014. She will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by her family and the many others who knew her during her 90 years of life. Elnor was born in Seattle, WA on November 13, 1923, to Leonard and Margaret Zanol. She grew up in Orondo, WA, where her parents had recently begun operation of an orchard. She graduated from Wenatchee High School in 1942, and on July 17, 1944, she was married to Carroll Reid of Waterville, WA. Upon his return in 1945 from service in the Navy, they made their first home in Orondo. Their family soon began with the birth of their first son, Gary, in 1945. Two more sons were to follow, Terry in 1949, and Bill in 1953. In 1962, the family moved to a new home in East Wenatchee, WA. Elnor and Carroll remained there until moving to Port Angeles in 1999, for their retirement years. Carroll passed away on July 12, 2013, shortly before the date of their 69th wedding anniversary. Afterward, with assistance from her family and friends, Elnor was able to continue living on her own at home in Port Angeles.

Along with her brother, Bill Zanol of Wenatchee, Elnor is survived by her sons, Gary and wife, Virginia of Olympia, WA, Terry and wife, Mary of Lake Tapps, WA, and Bill of Port Townsend, WA. Her family grew through the years to include four grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

There will be a Graveside Service at the Orondo Cemetery on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. Donations in Elnor’s memory may be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
