Johnson, whom she married in 1946.  They were blessed with a son and a daughter. 

Eleanor was a gifted musician and was very involved with the choral and band music programs at Frewsburg Central School, where she graduated in 1943. She later went on to study music at Houghton College for a year.  Eleanor also enjoyed playing the piano and was involved with the Mozart Club, singing in the chorus.  Throughout her life, Eleanor sang with a number of groups and also did solo work at churches, weddings, and funerals in the area.  She helped form the trio “AARP Angels,” who were very often found singing at functions around the Jamestown area.
