Following her retirement, she was often requested by at-home elderly patients for continued assistance and she always lovingly volunteered her help.

When Eleanor was younger, she loved to go fishing in Sabula. Later in life, she enjoyed playing with her teammates in league bowling.

Our condolence to all the family of Eleanor. I believe it was Eleanor, that took COPD classes with my father.
Both Dad and Eleanor's brother worked at DuPont for years- making the class less of a chore for both! (Dad passed away in '16) Margaret Jensen-Klaes
