Eleanor graduated from The Methodist School of Nursing and later received her BSN with honors from Indiana Central. She worked at Visiting Nurses Association before working and retiring from Methodist Hospital. After retiring, she was active in the community and enjoyed tutoring and volunteering within Perry Township. Eleanor truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; spending time with family brought great joy to her, and she cherished her friends. Eleanor had an unwavering faith in God. She was an active member of Christ United Methodist Church and Stephen Ministries. She found happiness in crossword puzzles, reading, cards, and being a constant fixture at her grandson’s many activities. She had a lifelong love for birds and enjoyed watching them from her chair every day. Eleanor loved chocolate, desserts and enjoyed ice cream every evening after dinner.
