Family gatherings, Dallas brunches, museum tours, and country craft fairs were among her favorite things. And at her heart, Eleanor Markham Culloo was a quintessential hippie: full of joy, peace, passion, and love.

Mom died Sunday, November 5, 2017, surrounded by family following a stroke and numerous complications.

At 68, her life was cut far too short, but she lived fully. Born and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts, she spent five years traveling by RV to see the country before settling in Midlothian, Texas. She is survived by her husband David of 48 years, her two daughters, Beth-Ann and Heather, and four grandchildren, Katelyn, Sarah, Emma and Meghan.

Among her last words, “Forever and Always My Love. Love you bunches.”
