Eleanor had a very sweet personality and cared deeply for her family. She was a social butterfly and enjoyed being among friends. She met with a group of wives who called themselves “Teammates”; whose husbands worked for McDonald-Douglas. She and Rich also spent many evenings with close friends. Eleanor loved reading and keeping up with current events. She enjoyed the outdoors camping, waterskiing, and traveling. She and Rich traveled extensively, thanks to Eleanor’s excellent planning, coving all 50 states in the U.S. Some of their favorite trips would include cruises to Alaska where they kayaked, as well as explored the European rivers. Eleanor will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
