After decades of willing and generous service to others, Eleanor Futch
Blackwood has finally been granted a well-deserved rest. At 64, she went
home to be with her Saviour on Wednesday December 29th.
She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Michael Blackwood;
mother-in-law, Barbara Blackwood; brother Arthur Futch; her four children and their
spouses; Bethanne and Doug, James and Laura, Rebekah and Dave, and Sarah and Matt, and seven grandchildren.
We love her and miss her.
Eleanor earned her BS in Sociology at Pfeiffer College in 1968. Her
many volunteer services included Youth for Christ, Westover Childrens'
Ministries, Southern Elementary School, and her life as a homemaker.
She was also the indispenable manager of the family business.
Visitation will be held at Westover Church in Greensboro Sunday evening
from 7 to 9 p.m; Memorial Service will be held at Westover Church, Monday at 10 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Greensboro Youth for Christ,
