ELEANORE WAL­TON

Lodi News-Sentinel - - LOCAL/STATE -

Eleanore Wal­ton, age 93, passed away in her sleep on the morn­ing of Novem­ber 8, 2019, at her home in Lodi, Cal­i­for­nia.

Born in the steel coun­try of western Penn­syl­va­nia, Eleanore was raised dur­ing the Great De­pres­sion by her lov­ing par­ents Peter and Ju­lia. She was molded in large part by her Pol­ish her­itage and Catholic faith. Fol­low­ing World War II she mar­ried her child­hood friend and de­voted suitor Ge­orge Wal­ton. The cou­ple shared 72 years of wed­ded hap­pi­ness.

It be­came some­thing of a defin­ing at­tribute of her life that the young and grow­ing fam­ily would move from time to time in search of op­por­tu­nity. In the 1950’s this led them to south­ern Cal­i­for­nia. Choos­ing not to work out­side the house, Eleanore’s great­est pride came from rais­ing her four chil­dren and trans­form­ing many houses into lov­ing homes. Over the years they would move many times, re­turn­ing to Penn­syl­va­nia twice, but al­ways com­ing back to Cal­i­for­nia. Upon Ge­orge’s re­tire­ment in 1988, the cou­ple moved north and set­tled in Lodi.

Eleanore is loved and is sur­vived by her de­voted hus­band, Ge­orge; her chil­dren, Ber­nadette, Ge­orge, Therese, Stan­ley and his wife Christie; sis­ter, Leona; and her ex­tended fam­ily of eight grand­chil­dren and six great grand­chil­dren. She will be greatly missed.

A visi­ta­tion will be held Mon­day, Novem­ber 18th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Vine­yard Chapel at Chero­kee Me­mo­rial Park, 14165 North Beck­man Road, Lodi, CA 95240.
