Elanor passed away at home in Lomita where she resided with her husband Jerry for over 35 years. Elanor was born on April 2, 1944 in Phoenix, AZ to Paul and Edna Marshall.

Shortly after Elanor met Jerry Garretson. They were married on February 20, 1960. In June 1968 they had a son, Greg. Elanor led an active life, for several years she was on a local bowling team which toured Southern California. She served as President of the School Board at Western Avenue Baptist Church in Harbor City. Each year Elanor, Jerry, Greg, and the dogs went on several camping trips all over the country. After Jerry's retirement in 2006 they purchased a home in Las Vegas where they spent as much time as possible. Elanor really loved to play bingo. Jerry and Elanor spent 57 years together. She is preceded in death by her mother and her brothers. She leaves behind a loving and devoted husband and a son whom they both cherish. She will be terribly missed by family and friends alike.
