Kveton, Eleanor
Oct 9, 1928 - Dec 16, 2020
Eleanor Marie Kveton, 92, went to be with her Lord and Savior on December 16th in Sarasota FL following a recent illness.
Eleanor was born on October 9, 1928 in Brooklyn to George and Josephine Kraupner (nee Blaha). She attended Grover Cleveland High School and Bates College where she earned a BS in Biology in 1949. She worked as a medical secretary at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. Eleanor married Frank W. Kveton MD in 1953 and together they raised three children, Susan, Ellen and Richard in Laurel Hollow and Bayville NY. Eleanor's faith was an extraordinary part of her life and she was a devoted member of two churches, First Presbyterian of Oyster Bay, serving as a deacon, then elder Clerk of Session, where she helped implement and lead their Stephen Ministry. In 1990 Eleanor and Frank moved part time to Longboat Key Florida, becoming full-time residents in 2005. In recent years Eleanor initiated and moderated the first Board of Deacons at Christ Church of Longboat Key. Eleanor and Frank were avid boaters, and she spent her summers swimming in the Long Island Sound in Bayville all her life.
Eleanor enriched the lives of her family and friends with her grace, wisdom, strength, and caring heart. She is preceded in death by her husband Frank. She is survived by her daughters Susan Mitchell of Winston-Salem NC, and Ellen Kveton of Suffolk VA, and son Richard Kveton of Bayville NY; sons-in-law Peter Mitchell, Alan Rountree and Anthony Shade; her brother Robert Kraupner and his wife Elna of Bayville NY; her grandchildren Alexander Mitchell (Meredith), Caroline Mitchell (Jackson), and Kaitlyn Rountree; great grandson Mack Mitchell; and Kraupner and Bures nieces and nephews and their families, all of whom loved their Aunt Elly. The family would like to thank the staff and caregivers at the Sarasota Bay Club for the loving care given to Eleanor.
Memorial services will be held in both Longboat Key and Oyster Bay at later dates, both in person and virtually. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Eleanor's name to First Presbyterian Church Of Oyster Bay NY, or Christ Church of Longboat Key FL.

Eleanor and Frank were such a loving presence at Christ Church of Longboat Key. They led, supported and participated in many programs and missions through our church, personally encouraging several of us in our own efforts to serve others. May their love continue to bless and encourage all who knew them.
