A Celebration of Life and disposition of her ashes will take place later this summer at her home on the family ranch in Hereford, Oregon.\nEleanor was born to Oris Mehlhorn and Jean Malone on January 3rd, 1932 in La Grande, Oregon.

Pine Valley always held a special place in her heart.\nEleanor graduated from Hereford Union High in 1950 and married Duwayne Sullivan that same year; they had four children together. She remained involved in the family ranch her entire life. Ranching was often challenging, but she loved it dearly and counted it as one of her true blessings in life. She was devoted to her family and her church, St. Joseph's Mission; both of which helped her through tough times and brought her immense joy. She always found the best in others and all who had the pleasure of knowing Eleanor recognized what an amazing woman she truly was.\nEleanor was preceded in death by her parents, Oris and Jean, her husband Duwayne, and her sister, Lois Moody.
