Zanesville - Eleanor L. Starner, 89, of Zanesville peacefully passed away in the morning hours of Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at Genesis Morrison House in Zanesville following an extended illness.

She was born on October 31, 1930, one of seventeen children to the late John and Edith (Riffle) Rosser.

Eleanor spent many of her working years as a dipper for the Hull Pottery Company in Crooksville and she was a former waitress at Winsor's Restaurant in South Zanesville.
