She is preceded in death by her parents; husband Robert A. Young, Sr.; siblings Edna Stephens, Louis Powell, Elizabeth Schenz, and Floyd Powell, Jr.; grandson Bradley Morris. Eleanor is survived by children Robert (Susan) Young and Sandra (George) Morris; grandchildren Heather (Michael) Rannebarger, Stephanie (Anthony) Newberry, and Ashley (Christopher) Vanderpool; great-grandchildren Logan, Chase, Mia, Ella, and Sophia; many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.
