Eleonore Warden Euritt

Eleonore Warden Euritt was born July 5, 1926 in Heidelberg, Germany, population 140,000, the only child to Alois and Luise (Mack) Schonet.

She grew up during World War II. Eleonore received her education in Heidelberg and attended the University in Heidelberg.

On April 17, 1948, Eleonore married 1st Lieutenant Glenn A Warden U.S. Army in Heidelburg. Together they left from Bremerhafen, Germany on an Army transport ship with 1,650 enlisted men and officers. Three days before they arrived in New York, out in the Atlantic Ocean, they got in a hurricane. This was Eleonore’s first experience of a storm. On September 6, 1948, after 11 days at sea, they arrived in New York City. They established their home in Blockton, Iowa. Both Eleonore & Glenn were in real estate and insurance. In 1955, Eleonore was offered a job with the Blockton Oil Company as a bookkeeper. She was in charge of the propane department. In 1960 the business was sold to Northern Natural Gas Company out of Omaha, Nebraska. Eleonore continued to work for them for 21 years. To this union one son was born Edward G Warden.  Glenn passed away in 1975.

In 1977 she married Marion E Euritt. Marion and Eleonore loved to travel. They went to Heidelberg and Eleonore showed Marion the house she lived in. For 13 winters they enjoyed Winterhaven, Florida. In her retirement years, Eleonore’s hobbies included needle point and stain glass crafting. She loved caring for her beautiful roses, lilies, and irises that grew abundantly in her backyard. Marion passed away in 1996.

Eleonore passed away on May 23, 2019. Preceding Eleonore in death are her parents; her husbands; and grandson Matthew Warden in 2010.

Left to honor her memory are her son Edward G Warden and wife Sandra and grandson Ryan Warden; stepdaughters Marie (Phil) Burmeister and Marla Kay (Dan) Roe; step grandchildren and their families, Jeff (Sonya) Burmeister and their daughter Dylan Burmeister, Jeremy (Lyndsey) Burmeister and their son Owen Burmeister, Michael (Danica) Roe and their children Kaidaen, Keagan, Kolten Roe.

Eleanore was such a poised, graceful lady. I enjoyed visiting with her when we had monthly Friendship
Club meetings. Her German accent was so wonderful to listen to when she spoke and she was always so
polite. A lovely lady who will be missed by those of us who had the privilege of knowing her.

We are sorry to learn of Eleonore's death. We look forward to seeing her alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." John 5:28, 29
