Elnora’s last residence was Summerfield Suites in Summerfield, Florida where she lived since 2019. She so enjoyed the activities and socializing with other residents and, of course, the wonderful staff and nurses.
No words can explain the void we will all feel over the loss of our beloved Elnora. She lit up a room with her presence, kindness and always a smile. She knew no strangers. She had a thirst for knowledge and loved to pass it on. Not a day went by without learning something from her. She was devoted to her family.
She also enjoyed every aspect of the theater with her brother, professor emeritus, Dr Nafe E Katter. She loved travel and could be ready to go in a minute. All you had to do is just say the word. Elnora was fun loving and adventurous and lots of fun to be with and the best mom. She will be sorely missed.
Memorial Donations in Elnora’s honor may be gifted to the Alzheimer’s Association of America.
