Eleanor Marcella Lombard Obituary
Lombard, Eleanor Marcella

Eleanor Marcella Lombard died peacefully in her home on December 29, 2015, at the age of 84. A resident of Albuquerque for the past 43 years, Eleanor was born in Chester, Pennsylvania on August 21, 1931. Her deceased parents, Ruth and Neal Harry Impaglazzio, were long time residents of Albuquerque.

Eleanor graduated high school at Ridley Township HS, PA, attended Marymount International School, Rome, she studied Art at the Univ. of Bern, Switzerland, and attended the UNM Continuing Education program.

She married Evan R. Lombard (deceased April 24, 2007) on November 3, 1951 and was a military wife for 28 years. Her life time residences included Chester PA, Lake Charles LA, Houston TX, Paris France, Rome Italy, Fairfield CA, Ocean City NJ, Bad Worishofen Germany, Chester PA, Levittown PA, Honolulu HI, Rhein Main Air Base Germany, and Albuquerque New Mexico. She enjoyed traveling, bowling, poker, bridge, painting, and was a active member of the Albuquerque Dance Club.

She is survived by brother Neal and Sister-in-law Carol Emper, her nieces Tracy and Nicole. Son Darrell Lombard and wife Beatrice, Daughter Kathryn Lombard-Thomas and Husband Leon, Daughter Cheryl Thorpe and husband John. Grandchildren, Russell and wife Sara Lombard, Adam and Sam Thorpe, Rachel Lujan step-granddaughter and great-granddaughter Stella Grace Lombard.

Eleanor inspired so many of us in her love of family and her tremendous enthusiasm for life. Into her 80's she continued dancing, playing cards, and was always the last to leave a family gathering, event or party. Eleanor lived on her own terms, gave love unconditionally to those in her circle. She had an open door for close friends and made them feel at home. Had the devastation of ALS not taken our ever smiling Eleanor, she would have lived to 100 or more, and danced till the end. Peace, dear Eleanor.

Service and reception will be held on Thursday, January 7, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at FRENCH â€" Lomas. Private service to be held at Santa Fe National Cemetery to rest along side her husband, Evan. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the New Mexico Community Of Hope: Memory of Eleanor Marcella Lombard - The ALS Association:
