Raised on fruit ranches in Pleasants Valley, Eleanor attended local schools, graduating from Vacaville High School in 1947. She completed Heald Business College in San Francisco and returned to Vacaville to marry her high school sweetheart, Victor Hansen.

She touched many lives and will be sorely missed.
