Tribute to Elinor Jones 12/6/1944 - 20/6/2010 Scotland

“your beauty ... should be that of your inner self, the un-fading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight” 1Peter 3:3-4.

For me this theses verses were personalised in the life of Elinor whom I count it such a privilege to have known. My life is the richer for having been befriended by her. Elinor was a lovely Christian who was able to get along-side people and chat to them on a ‗one to one‘ basis, qui-etly sharing her faith in the Lord Jesus. She also had a great sense of humour and it was a pleasure to be in her company. Her poetry and prose writings have been a source of comfort and blessing to many and will continue to be so. Along with oth-ers from Scotland, Elinor attended the recent EBWU conferences in Croatia and Holland. For many years Elinor suffered from debilitating illness, yet her faith remained strong and she bore her suffering with grace though at times it was an effort for her. She is now with her Lord Whom she loved and wrote about, but her family and friends continue to mourn their loss, especially Janette her close friend and confidante..
