She attended South High School and the University of Utah. She received a degree in education and belonged to Alpha Kai Omega. After graduation she taught 1st grade at Roosevelt Elementary. She married Jay Lidell Christensen in the Salt Lake Temple on June 19, 1947. Eleanor was an amazing woman. She moved many times during her marriage and did so with a smile on her face. She packed up, moved to a new house and always made a "home" for her family. Moving was always an adventure for her, she loved making new friends; joined New Comers, the Welcome Wagon and became involved in neighborhood activities. After Jay retired, they bought a cabin in Star Valley, Wyoming and spent many wonderful summers with friends and family. Her grandchildren thought that was the "best" place for vacation. She belonged to a study group, The Order of the Cross. She traveled with this group extensively. They bought her great piece of mind. She is survived by, the sister-in-law Cherril, her son Carl Andrew, her daughters Julie (Ted) and Elizabeth (Wayne), her grandchildren Amy, Jason, Nikki, Katie, Allison, John, Kelly, Jeff and seventeen great-grandchildren. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the staff of Atria for their kind and loving care. We would also like to thank Horizon Hospice Care for making her last days peaceful and dignified. Friends and Family may visit from 6-8:00pm Friday, September 5, 2014 at Wasatch Lawn (3401 S Highland Drive). A graveside service will be held Saturday, September 6th at 11:00am.
