Eleanor primarily worked for the NYS Department of Civil Service, retiring at the age of 70 after 40 plus years of service.
Eleanor's hobbies included a vegetable garden, a blueberry garden, having a horse (Benny) for her barn and especially mowing 3 of 6 acres of land.

Also, a special thank you to Eleanor’s best friend Dorothy and the ladies who gave her care 24/7. She loved all of you.
