ELEANOR CAROLYN LINGBECK was born on June 6, 1923 to John and Anna (Enninga) Baerenwald in Adrian, Minnesota. She received her education and graduated from Adrian High School in 1942. On April 25, 1944, Eleanor was united in marriage to Sylvester “Sy” Lingbeck at her parents’ home in Adrian. While Sy served in the United States Army during WWII, Eleanor moved in with his parents. Sy returned home from his service in July of 1946. Through the years, the couple raised hogs and dairy cattle on farms near Adrian, Hardwick and Ellsworth, Minnesota, while raising their two daughters. In 1990, the couple retired from farming and moved into Ellsworth. Sy preceded her in death on February 28, 2008. In November 2012, Eleanor moved to the Sunrise Village in Jasper, Minnesota and enjoyed her time there putting together puzzles and reading books. On Wednesday, November 8, 2017 Eleanor passed away at the Sanford Luverne Hospice Cottage at the age of 94 years, five months and two days.
