Mrs. Gore was born in Spencer, West Virginia on February 26, 1921, the daughter of the late Arville Wilson Wyatt and J Elijah Wyatt.

After graduating from high school young Elnore attended business school and learned all the things she needed to assist in running a business. Desiring to assist in the war effort during WWII, she used her skills at the Goodyear Aircraft Base where they built the Chance Vought F 4 U Corsair Plane.

Many years later she met and married the love of her life Ralph Gore, and became a second mother to his children. For over twenty years she assisted her beloved husband as bookkeeper of his business, Barberton TV and Appliance Center. She was a wonderful cook who enjoyed preparing special meals for all to enjoy.

During the summer months she worked diligently to can all of the luscious vegetables from their garden. She was a very gifted seamstress who was sought out far and near for her talents with a needle.

Attending church was very important to her, and she did so until her health would no longer permit it. Mrs. Elnore was known for her very giving heart, and she never tired of helping all those she knew and loved. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her husband Ralph Gore of Franklin, GA.; one daughter, Deborah Zabitski (John) of Barberton, OH.; three sons, Joseph Gore (Helen) of Barberton, OH., James Gore (Debbie) of Akron, OH., and Mike Cooper of Canton, OH.; nine grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
