Eleanor Aldridge, who with her husband opened Reno's Restaurant more than 50 years ago at a rural crossroads in Gambrills, died of pneumonia Thursday at Anne Arundel Medical Center. She was 92. For more than two decades, she ran the business side of the small restaurant and did much of the home-style cooking. In retirement, she continued to make the coleslaw and soups as well as a few other dishes. In recent years, as her health declined, she did not cook but came in a few times a week to look in on the kitchen, see customers and chat with family.
