Eleanor R. Morgan, 87, of Leadville, Colorado passed away peacefully at home on October 3, 2014. She was born in Rochester, New York on March 8, 1927 to Thomas and Katherine Curry. She married John Wesley Morgan on May 27, 1950 and they moved to Colorado soon after their wedding.  They were married for 18 years.

Eleanor graduated from West High School in Rochester, New York in 1944. She spent the last part of her career as a transportation manager for Jefferson County Public Schools, retiring in 1981.  She enjoyed western history, traveling, the outdoors, mexican food and, of course, margaritas. However, Eleanor’s greatest joy in life was her family and the time she spent with them. She loved life and had an exceptional sense of humor. She will be greatly missed by her family and all that knew her.

Eleanor is survived by her children Margie Allen, Annie Morgan and Mike Crowley, Gail Morgan and Jake and Debbie Morgan; grandchildren Jessica and Dave Flack, Thomas Allen, Kris and Sarah Morgan, and Robyn Morgan; great grandchildren Seth Flack, Blaine Flack, Rhett Flack, and Kaylah Morgan; sister Betty Mura of New York and many nieces and nephews and their families. She is preceded in death by her parents and siblings Jane Blum, Esther Henry, Virginia Brookins, Katherine Campen and John Curry.

As per Eleanor's request, the family will be hosting an open house at The Grill, 715 Elm Street, Leadville Colorado between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday October 25th, 2014.  Please click on the "Condolences" tab above to leave a condolence for the family.

Aunt Eleanor will always be in my heart as a fun-loving and kind person. My brother and I were always excited to see her and hear her asking us for a "kiss kiss kiss." The Curry family has lost another strong woman. I'm sorry we won't be able to attend the open house, but I'll toast to Aunt Eleanor that night. Much love from the Indiana Brookins Blinns.
