Kidwell, Elinor Eilene
85, passed November 24th, 2015. Born in Warsaw, Indiana on December 14, 1929 to Helen and Aaron Osbun, Elinor was one of 7 children. A graduate of Phoenix Union High School Elinor went on to eventually work for Mountain Bell Telephone Co. becoming one of the first females in their engineering department responsible for the design and construction of connecting and transfer stations throughout Arizona. Elinor is survived by her sons, James and William, both from Phoenix, four Grandchildren and five Great grandchildren. She is further survived by her sister Joyce Bosley in Lansing MI and brother Jesse Osbun in Mesa, AZ as well as her nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. In addition to her parents, Elinor is preceded in death by her husband Donald, sisters Georgia and Francis, and brothers, Stephen, Maynard. Elinor courageously donated her body to science in the hopes that through science and study, others may not have to endure the struggles, questions and fears of this disease. In lieu of flowers and in honor of Elinor's determined spirit, donations can be sent to your local or national Alzheimer's Research Programs.
