I had her for typing my sophomore year at RHS.
She always had a smile on her face and encouraged everyone she taught. She was one of my favorite teachers at Rivesville.
She was taken way too soon.
She will be sorely missed...

Though our sweet, precious Eleanor is abscent from us here on earth, we have the confidence and believe that she is now present with her Lord & Savior Jesus Christ! Eleanor was a true SERVENT of her Lord and made a wonderful difference in the lives of others. Her sweet gift of song and genuine worship brought us into God's holy presence. We can only imagine Eleanor singing with the angels and heavenly saints, worshipping at the feet of Jesus. We will miss dear Eleanor but know we will one day join her in that Heavenly choir!

I had this lovely Lady for Typing and Bookkeeping in 1971 at Rivesville HS. She loved to play Carol King "Tapestry" for us as we typed and we would all sing. She surely was One of those Teachers that impacted so many lives. We All Loved her so very much and pray she's in a better place.

So sorry to hear of her passing. I was in her typing class at Rivesville High. I have used what she taught all the rest of my life till now and will continue till I die. Not all other classes from school can I claim the same.
