Eleanor and Wayne moved to Santa Barbara in 1975. They were members of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church. Eleanor was an interior designer and always enjoyed creating comfortable and elegant spaces for her clients. She was predeceased by her daughter, Kathleen Sutherland and her husband Wayne Sutherland.
