Eleanor O. Nelson, 76, Fargo passed away Friday, May 23, 2014 at the palliative care unit of Sanford Health, Fargo surrounded by her family.
Eleanor was born May 12, 1938 in Hazelton, North Dakota to Louis and Martha (Eichorst) Ohlhauser. She attended Hazelton High School, graduating in 1956. She worked in Hazelton for a short time before moving to Bismarck where she began working for Northwest Bell Telephone Company. She married Earl Nelson on September 4, 1960 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Hazelton, North Dakota. They lived in Bismarck and Casselton before making their home in Fargo in 1995.
She loved to play cards and travel. She enjoyed spending winters in Arizona and always loved spending time with her friends and grandchildren. Hospitality was the gift she brought to everyone wherever she was.
She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Earl, Fargo; children, Jolene (Blake) Easton, Fergus Falls, MN, Darcy (Mark Carlson) Christensen, Glendale, AZ, Dawn (Mike) Woytassek, Fargo, ND, Carmen (Mark) Brough, Fort Wayne, IN, sisters, Edna (Don) Flynn, Bismarck, ND, Janice (Joe) Juma, Stanley, ND, brother, Ernie Ohlhauser, Bismarck, ND, and 17 grandchildren, Maggie, Cate, Serrah, Emily, Andrew, Todd, Ben, Max, Erin, Amanda, Kayla, Victoria, Meriah, Alicia, Marco, Bella and Savannah.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Rudy, sisters, Tillie and Florence and son-in-law Robert Christensen.
Although the above tells about my life and accomplishments, my funeral will center around, not what I have done, but around what God has done for me. For the sins that I have committed, Christ has earned forgiveness for me. He suffered and died on the cross so that I am with Him in heaven. These are the accomplishments that need to be considered at my funeral. The next time you see me you too will be in glory.
