On October 27, 2018, our darling mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt, Elinor Margaret Wood, went home to her Lord. Elinor had been a happy resident at Solaris Healthcare in Pt. Charlotte for over three years. She was a Florida native, she and her twin Elizabeth being born in Tampa in 1937. Elinor is survived by a son, David Nelson of N. Ft. Myers; a daughter, Stephanie Ray of Old Town; grandchildren Joseph Ray of Chiefland and Jenna Ray of Trenton; great grandchildren Hailey, Alexander and Benjamin. Also surviving are sisters Elizabeth Suckling of Pt. Charlotte, Nelle White of Ruskin and Sharon Nelson of Punta Gorda and also lots of nieces and nephews. May she feel the wind beneath her wings, fly high sweet angel, we all love you so.

Elinor, your twin brothers Rockland Brian Steel and Robert Bruce Cole and both of their familes hope you have finally found your place of rest, since you are now with the Lord singing with the Angel's and you are now in a place with no more sickness or pain. Elinor we love you so much, may you rest in peace.
To the 3 surviving sisters of Elinor M. Wood : Your mother would Not approve of the way all of you so easily disowned your adopted twin brothers Rockland Brian Steel and Robert Bruce Cole. Your mother called me aside one day while we were at her house staying with her for your dad's funeral. Your mother called me aside and asked me very sweetly "Dottie, I wish Robert were here: he is my son too! Why isn't he here?" I told her that Robert was the manager of a store and tried and tried to get time off to be down here in Florida for his father's funeral, but since he was the manager of the store he could not get anyone to replace him. So he couldn't be here. The point is your mother said Robert is my son too! Anything to say Nelle you were adopted too!
My loving twin, I will keep you in my heart always.
My deepest condolences to Ellie's family. I will never forget her smile and wonderful sense of humor! She was a beloved member of the Solaris Healthcare family and will be greatly missed.
My sweet dear friend you were a pleasure to know and such a heartfelt love for her family. I will miss talking with you on FB you will be missed a part of us has gone with your journey will continue love you Ellie
My condolences to the family and friends of Mrs Wood. May the God of comfort and hope be with you all. And please take to heart his comforting words found at Jerimiah 29:12. There He urges to call on him in prayer and he will listen. He will listen to your sadness and he will help.
Love you MOM
