Obituary for Eleanor Stockel

Eleanor Stockel was born in Vrbas, Yugoslavia on August 10, 1929. She entered Heaven’s gate on March 28, 2018.
A consummate mother, grandmother and homemaker, Eleanor was an excellent cook and enjoyed making dinners for her family. Her specialties included fried chicken with green beans and hunkie bits, chicken Marsala, and the kid’s all-time favorite, spätzle.
She had a life well-lived as her daily routine included trips to the supermarket, post office and bank where she would be sure to say hello to EVERYONE she met. Over the past 3 years she suffered from dementia, but she never failed to recognize her family and tell them how much she loved them. You would always catch grandma snuggling on the couch with grandpa watching soccer or listening to their favorite operas.
Eleanor was survived by her husband, Jakob Stockel, married 66 happy years. She is also survived by her two sons, John and wife Tracey, Eric and wife Lori, along with their five grandchildren, Becky, John, Jr. and wife Skye, Kelly and fiancé Shaun, Kevin and Annie.
The family will receive friends on 3/30 Beecher Flooks Funeral Home from 4-8pm.
