Eleanor E. Alt passed away on January 24, 2020 in Laurel, Montana. She was born on April 18, 1921, west of Melville, Montana to “Jack” and Leona Harper. She grew up and attended school in Big Timber, Montana. While cooking on a ranch, she met Adolph Alt, and they were married on Christmas Eve 1938.

Adolph and Eleanor lived in Roundup, Montana where she was very active in 4H leadership and in the ladies’ group at St. Paul Lutheran Church. In 1965 they purchased a ranch in Joliet, Montana. She continued to be active in St. John Lutheran Church in Laurel and was a bus driver for the Joliet School District. She had a beautiful yard and garden and was active in the Joliet Garden Club and the Montana Cowbelle Association.

Eleanor was preceded in death by her husband Adolph, her daughter Della Carlson, and her son Carl Alt. She was preceded in death by her brother Douglas and her sisters Marjorie and Velma.

She is survived by her children: Earl (Cheri) Alt of Joliet, Betty (Merle) Barnett of Kamiah, Idaho, and David (Helen) Alt of Vancouver, Washington, her 10 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. She is also survived by four sisters: Mildred Deichert of Billings, Edna Lindstrom of Spokane Valley, Washington, Pat Maxwell of Bozeman, and Carlene Wittmer of West Yellowstone, and numerous nieces and nephews.
