While in Virginia, she joined Prospect Baptist Church in Blackstone. She attended Nottoway High School and immediately began her career in nursing. Eleanor enjoyed working with the elderly and taking care of everyone. Up until she could not physically handle it, she gave her all and dedicated her time to teaching and caring for anyone in need, especially her grandchildren.
Eleanor leaves behind three sons, Curtis (LaTisha), Tyrone and Justice, Sr.; one daughter, Stephanie (Johnny); seven adored grandchildren, Amaja’ Lewis, Khaleel Fowlkes, Olivia Fowlkes, Cameron Fowlkes, Ezekiel Ward, Justice Fowlkes, Jr., and Jaliyah Ward.
