Obituary of Eleanor Murray Eaton

Of Clarence, NY, entered peacefully into rest on July 19, 2021 at the age of 104 after a brief illness. Loving wife of the late David Charles Eaton; cherished mother of Murray (Jan) Eaton, Bruce (Linda) Eaton and the late Laura (Bill) Langejans; beloved grandmother of Elliot Langejans, Audrey Langejans and Alexander Eaton. A native of New York City and a 1940 graduate of Kansas University, she oversaw the library at Walker Army Air Force Base in KS where she met and married base commander Capt. David Eaton of Kenmore, NY. The couple settled in WNY after the war and while a homemaker and part-time librarian at the Orchard Park Library, Eleanor was extremely active in the community. She was co-founder of the Orchard Park Antiques Study Group, Orchard Park Chorale and longtime historian for the Orchard Park Symphony in addition to being active in M.A.D.D., the League of Woman Voters, and numerous other groups. Active in local politics, she was a founding member of the Americans for Constitutional Action - a small group which helped inspire Congressman Jack Kemp to enter public service. She embraced organic foods in the late 1940’s and remained physically and socially active in her final years as a member of the Garden Friends of Clarence, Clarence Book Review, and the Clarence Senior Center, while never missing watching a Buffalo Bills game. A Memorial Service will be held at Clarence United Methodist Church, 10205 Greiner Rd., Clarence, 14031, on Saturday, September 25 at 11 AM as well as being live-streamed on the church website.
