Eleanor was born March 30, 1924 to Carl and Nell Straus in Portland, Ore. She graduated from Grant High School where she met the love of her life, Robert Urie. They were married April 24, 1944.
Bob and Eleanor moved to Medford in 1951 to establish his optometry practice. Eleanor worked alongside Bob as his receptionist and bookkeeper. After their retirement, they enjoyed living in Tempe, Ariz. and San Diego, Calif. She enjoyed lawn bowling, swimming, square dancing, and playing bridge.
After Bob’s death in 1990, Eleanor moved back to Medford to be close to her daughters.
She is survived by her daughters, Sharyn Fjarli (Clyde) and Barbara Johnson (John); her grandchildren, Tom Wyatt, Chelsie McCoy, David Johnson, Steve Wyatt, and Kurtis Johnson; and her six great-grandsons.
Eleanor requested there be no services at her passing. A family celebration of life will be held at a later date.
