Obituary for Eleanor Olson Pratt

Born January 22, 1937 in Murray, UT to Willard Olof and Ruby Taylor Olson. Died November 8, 2017 in Salt Lake City, UT of causes incident to age. Graduated Murray High Class of 1955. Married Paul Robinson Pratt, May 4, 1956 in the Salt Lake Temple. Later divorced.
Survived by children, Scott (Heidi) Pratt, Ruthann (Lauren) Gibbs, John (Christine) Pratt, Ken (Megan) Pratt; 9 grandchildren; 6 great grandchildren; sister, Janice (Fred) Peck; extended family and friends. Preceded in death by parents; brother and sister-in-law, Russell & Afton Olson; sister and brother-in-law, Lorraine & Ralph Klemm.
Eleanor loved and cared about people. From lending a listening ear to sharing her many talents, her desire was to serve others. Many were the beneficiaries of her knitting, crocheting, sewing and crafts. Music was a big part of her life: singing, playing the piano and clarinet, and listening to hymns. Eleanor enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles and spending time with family.
Mental illness robbed her of much of life’s enjoyment, the pain of which she endured for over 80 years. The lessons learned from her challenges helped define who we as a family are today. Our deepest gratitude goes to the countless angels who helped her through the rough times.
Visitation for family and friends will be on Monday, November 13, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary Mid Valley, 4760 South State Street, Murray. Graveside services on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the Murray City Cemetery.
The family would like to thank Mission at Hillside Rehabilitation Center as well as the many family and friends who loved and cared for Eleanor.
