Elnora Aday, age 99, passed away on March 15, 2020 at her home in Waxahachie, Texas. She was born on January 9, 1921 in Waxahachie to Nonnie Battles and Earnest Carroll. In 1938, she married John Charles Aday and they remained married until his death in 1993. Elnora worked for Haggar Slacks during WWII and later Sears, Roebuck & Company; however, she and husband Charles were best known in the community for owning and operating Aday’s Dairy Mart near downtown Waxahachie for over 30 years. She was a savvy business person and it was at the Dairy Mart where “Mrs. Aday” would “parent” many local teenagers.

Affectionately known by her family as “Muna”, Elnora is survived by her children, John Aday and wife Kathryn of Waxahachie, Amy Ivey and husband Rob of Garland; grandchildren, Scott Aday, Clint Aday, Silas Aday (Jenny), Lauren Presser (Matt), Robert Ivey (Chad), Emily Ivey, Michael Ivey (Tanna), Patrick Ivey, as well as eight great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, John Charles Aday; son, Charles Edwin Aday, Sr.; grandson Charles Edwin Aday, Jr. and granddaughter Patsy Bliss Aday; and sister Juliette Muirhead.
The family would like to thank her caregivers and good friends Virginia Cleveland and Sharon Winkler, as well as Lidia Palomino and Laura Vance. They would also like to thank the workers of Bristol Hospice.

Visitation for family and friends will be from 6:00 to 8:00 PM Wednesday, March 18, 2020 in the chapel of Boze-Mitchell-McKibbin Funeral Home in Waxahachie.

A private graveside service will be held on Thursday, March 19, 2020 at Hillcrest Burial Park in Waxahachie.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society, The Heart Association, or a charity of your choice.
