Before she got married and started a family in Bedford, she spent some time as a student at Kent State University. After that, she moved to Bedford with her family.

Her great-grandson, Mario, is also survived by his wife, Julie.
The woman who was married to her son Mario, Julie, also survives. She had nine great-grandchildren, and their names were Elias, Lena, Tatum, Camdyn, Amara, Gavin, and Ngozi, in that order. Eleanor was her ninth great-grandchild. Her tenth great-grandchild was a boy named Benson. She is regarded as a beloved aunt by both Kimberly and Brian.
