Ora Eleanor Young, 97, a third generation "Cable-ite", entered eternity on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at Water's Edge Care Center in Hayward, WI.
Eleanor was born on August 12, 1915 at home on the family farm near the intersection of Lake Owen Drive and Kimball Road outside of Cable, WI to Ora Lee and Elsie Elizabeth (Warburton) Fleming. She graduated 8th grade from Long Lake School, attended Cable High School for 3 years, and graduated from Drummond High School in 1933. On October 9, 1937, she married Norval Young at the Congregational Church in Cable. Eleanor lived in Cable her whole life, and was a well-known "caretaker, cook, cleaner, and nanny" for various vacation estate families on Lake Owen.
Eleanor retired in 1977, and was a long time member of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church in Cable.
She is survived by her son Dick Young of Cable, WI; daughter Kathy (Arvin) Jensen of McHenry, IL; grandson Matt (Stacie) Barger of McHenry, IL; granddaughter Mary (Ronnie) Cruz of Virginia Beach, VA; great-grandchildren Jalen and Maia Cruz of Virginia Beach, VA; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Eleanor was preceded in death by her husband Norval in 1968, her parents, sisters Elizabeth and Dorothy, and brothers Leslie and infant Charles.
At the request of Eleanor, no formal services were planned. Interment was in the Greenwood Cemetery in Cable, WI. In lieu of flowers, Eleanor suggested donations to the Lake Owen Association.
