Eleanor Townsend

August 12, 1918 — December 17, 2017

On December 17, 2017, Eleanor passed away peacefully at the age of 99 in Billings.

A native of Arkansas, she moved to Phoenix shortly after graduating from high school where she met and married her husband, Wilbur, then in the Army Air Corps. Following his discharge, they moved to Bozeman, near where Wilbur’s parents homesteaded. There, they devoted themselves to raising three children, Charles (Jean), Marsha (Bruce – deceased) Putnam and Brenda (Steve) Putnam.

After retiring from a career in retail, Eleanor traveled extensively before moving to a senior living facility in Billings.

Eleanor was preceded in death by her husband in 1983. She is survived by her three children, three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

The family would especially like to thank the staff at Tender Nest in Billings for all their care and concern.

A family celebration of her life will be held in Bozeman at a later date. Memorial donations in memory of Eleanor can be made to the First Presbyterian Church at 26 W. Babcock St. Bozeman, MT 59715.
