Elleanor L. Lemons, a longtime resident of the Pendleton and Pilot Rock areas, passed away September 27, 2015, at Willowbrook Terrace in Pendleton, Oregon. She was born July 23, 1932, in Hall, Montana, to Joseph Dennis and Berniece Huff.

When Elleanor was a teenager she moved with her father to Pendleton, where she graduated in 1950 from Pendleton High School. She was a homemaker who was a jack of all trades.

Elleanor was a member of The Church of Christ, St. Anthony’s Bargain Counter, V.F.W. Auxiliary, and a member of the bowling league for many years.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Lyle Lemons. Her survivors include her children Ninette (Steve) Jackson, Paula (Vern) Sandy, Pete Lemons (Helen), and Larry Lemons (Janette); grandchildren Lori Barnett, Alissa McCall, Lamarta Sandy, Kalanea Sandy, Jamie Lacey, Lindsey Lemons, Jennifer Teribury, Kelly McNeeley and Jordan Pies; 20 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.

Graveside services will be held at Pilot Rock Cemetery on October 2, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. A gathering of friends and family will follow the service.
