Pratt, Eleanor Margaret
Eleanor Pratt, 89 passed away peacefully in Phoenix Arizona on November 6, 2016. Born November 15, 1926 in Dyer, Tennessee to Clyde and Lucille Peevyhouse. Her life as a child in Tennessee was good; she was surrounded by a loving family. At the age of 10, her mother became very ill and the family moved to Arizona for her convalescence. Her father was able to find work at Rowell's Pecan Farm in Gilbert, Arizona. It was there she attended high school, graduated with Honors from Grand Canyon College, and began her teaching career at Higley Elementary. In 1960 Eleanor moved to Sacramento, California where she became acknowledged for her teaching skills, and remained employed by the Elk Grove Unified School District until her retirement from Pleasant Grove Elementary School. Eleanor was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband, United States Air Force Major Billy R. Pratt, a Vietnam Veteran. She met and married Bill in California; later moving to Tucson, Arizona where they spent the rest of their married life. They joined and worshiped at the Sabino Road Baptist Church, and loved the church and its members. She is survived by her Daughter, Sherri Day; her Granddaughter, Tiffany Geiler; her Brother, Gentry Peevyhouse and wife Roxie, three sons: David, Max, Len, and daughter Pat; her Stepsons, David Pratt and Richard Pratt. In North West Tennessee there are many, including her aunt Mary Thornton, uncle Bill Davidson, also Ronnie Davidson and family. This large family and many friends will dearly miss her ready smile and kind ways.
