Eleanor Inez Punch was born on January 20, 1929, to Phillip and Fannie Glenn in Dallas, Texas. She transitioned to eternity with her Lord and Savior on August 16, 2020.
Eleanor graduated high school and went on to enjoy a dual-career. A woman of high work ethic, she worked as a childcare worker in the Preston Hollow area and as a custodian in Dallas.
