Ms. Eleanor was born on October 3, 1927, in Kelly, North Carolina to Robert and Gertrude Peterson. She grew up in the Great Depression which made her a very strong and courageous woman.

Ms. Eleanor was a member of the Land O’Lakes Garden Club and of the Baptist faith. She was preceded in death by her husbands, William B. Moorer and John Basile; her parents; and sisters, Hazel, Grace, Esther, and Nelene.
