Memories Timeline


  1. I would like to express my sincere sympathies to Mrs. Liano’s family, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    While I never had the opportunity to meet her personally I heard about her through the fond compliments of my fellow OES Eastern Star sisters. She certainly contributed greatly not only to the Eastern Star but in so many ways to her church and community. She was blessed with a long life and so many beautiful children. May she rest in peace in heaven. Peace be with you and may she live on through everyone’s fond memories of special times spent with her.

  2. Eleanor (Hattie) enjoyed camping with her husband, George, and National Camping Travelers (NCT). After he died and when she lived at Masonicare, she would be dressed in her NCT vest on Grand Master’s Day, smiling and happy to be greeted by her sisters and brothers from OES and NCT. There are many in the Masonic family who will keep her memory close to their hearts.
