She was born on April 12, 1934, in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Oscar “Elbridge” Gammill and Katherine F. Gammill. She graduated from Syracuse University. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who instilled a sense of “family” in the ones she loved. She loved to socialize with her family and friends and generously gave her time to others in need as a candy striper hospital volunteer and in other volunteer roles. She was an active member of P.E.O., which is a philanthropic organization that celebrates the advancement of women through education. She enjoyed antiquing, and she loved golfing and other recreational activities with her friends while she and her husband lived in the Bentwater community of Montgomery, Texas.

Her grandchildren will remember her butterfly kisses. Her family wishes to extend their sincere thanks to the wonderful caregivers at Morning Glory, especially her loving caregivers Florence, Rose, Angela and Caroline. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given in Eleanor’s name to P.E.O. Foundation, 3700 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50312.
