Eleaner Larraine Magnussen, cherished Mother, Grand-mother, Great- Grandmother, and friend to many, passed safely into the arms of our Lord on March 28, 2011. She will be dearly missed by her children, Lynn Witheford (Peter), Leslie Weil (J. Martin), Rick Magnussen (Sally), and Mark Magnussen, as well as her eight grandchildren, and seventeen great-grandchildren and numerous friends and caregivers.
Eleaner was warm, sensitive, compassionate, and caring. Raising her family was her priority, but she also worked side by side with her husband Frederick (1921-2006) in his many businesses. Animals also held a special part of Eleaner's heart, and she had quite a menagerie of pets throughout her life. An avid gardener, Eleaner spent many hours in her beautiful yard tending to her Rose Garden. She also had a green thumb for raising African Violets which bloomed profusely under her gentle care.
"You touched us all, and we will never forget the love, giggles, and genuine sweetness that will leave a beautiful and endless ripple effect. You will be missed beyond words."
