I am so saddened by Lenore’s passing. We worked together for over 6 years. She would always make me laugh, sometimes to the point of crying. She had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. She loved her family and always spoke of them especially Gabby. Lenore will be truly missed. Sending prayers to Chrissy, Eric and family. ߙϰߙ

I am so sorry to hear of Lenore’s passing. I worked with Lenore at Palmerton Hospital. She was always kind, and smiling. I could see she enjoyed caring for her patients. She will be missed, and never forgotten.
