Eleanor Jean Barber

1934 - 2018 Notice Condolences
Oct. 28, 1934 - Aug. 10, 2018 Eleanor J. Barber, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away from complications of dementia on Aug. 10, in Logan, UT. Eleanor was born on Oct. 28, 1934 in Norcross, MN to Leland Kelly and Margaret Haugen. She had three sisters, Helen, Clarice and Marge and three brothers, Leland (Sonny), Jerry and Tom. She attended school in Norcross, MN and graduated from Herman High School in 1952. After high school, she worked for the telephone system as an operator and subsequently moved to Vallejo, and worked for Bank of America for 28 years until retirement. She had three children, Bob Bohnet, Elizabeth Pugh and John Bohnet. She married William (Bill) Barber in 1987 and together they resided in Vallejo until Bill's death. Mom was devoted to her children and worked diligently to provide for, support and serve them in whatever capacity she was able. She loved to dance and play cards and her senior years were spent serving her family and playing cards with family and her friends at the senior center. She was known throughout the neighborhood for her work ethic and a weed was never safe in her presence. She was a faithful member of the Lutheran Church and attended regularly until she was unable to attend due to her illness. She was the best mom and grandmother in the whole world and her family was blessed to have her in their lives. Mom is survived by her three children, Bob (Rachele) Bohnet, Benicia, Elizabeth (Byron) Pugh, Wellsville, UT, and John (Jill) Bohnet, Benicia; 10 grandchildren; four great grandchildren; one brother, Jerry (Fern) Haugen, and one sister, Marge (Jim) Hale. Mom was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; father; mother; two brothers, and two sisters. Mom will be remembered for her tenacity and ability to provide for her children despite many trials and struggles. Despite working multiple jobs, she always attended her sons sporting events and was their greatest fan. Mom wished to be buried in Herman, MN., where a graveside service will be held on Oct. 20, at 11 a.m. Condolences may be expressed online at www.allenmortuaries.net.
