She is also survived by nieces Karen Searles, Susan McClellan and Robin McClellan, as well as brother-in-law and special friend James Mead. Eleanor was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and the love of her family always came first. She was a long time member of her church, Our Lady of Sorrows, where she formed many deep friendships over the years. Eleanor loved her role as the long time coordinator of the OLS food pantry where she was able to help many in times of need. She enjoyed her participation in the Ridgehaven Garden Club and Ladybugs social groups. Eleanor also enjoyed ceramics for many years, and loved sewing and flower gardening.
