Elinor Hermes Swanstrom
A former college/post-college roommate and life-long friend of my mother Elinor Hermes Swanstrom died this morning from a heart-attack in Walnut Creek California at the age of about 66. To the best of my knowledge she leaves behind her husband Jerry, sister Mary, and several nieces and nephews. I have fond memories of spending time with her in Carmel, California where she would let us stay in her cottage, as well as a trip she made to Philadelphia about two years ago where we had dinner at the Caribou Cafe and then took a tour of the Kimmel Center.
Please keep her family in your thoughts.
