My deepest and heartfelt condolences to the Dearolph family. Eleanor was a good neighbor and friend. She mentored me, a new young teacher, when I worked with her at the Woodward Lower School many years ago. Eleanor had a warm smile and bubbly laugh, and I will remember her always! I know she's in a better place. Rest well, dear lady. - E. McWhorter

With Deepest Sympathy to all of the family and especially to you, dear friend Gus. You two were a couple of all couples and were not only good role models to your own children and grandchildren about marriage, parenting and life; but, to all the many children you both taught through your phenomenal years of dedicated teaching at Woodward. You both were my favorites.
She will be missed by so many. The more we grieve, the more we know how much we loved them.

Wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, mentor and friend. So many roles, but she performed them all with unsurpassed aptitude and grace. Our loss is heaven’s gain. We will miss you, dear friend. Love to Gus and the family.

Eleanor Dearolph was the absolute best Mother-in-law a man could ask for. Her impact on my life and that of my family is beyond substantial. Always a lady, a fantastic grandmother and most of all- a great friend to myself and those she came in contact with. I am grateful that the Lord put me in her path and pray that her soul will rest easy from a job well done.

Eleanor has been such an important part of my life since high school. My last 2 years at Woodward I think I was at her house more than my own. She was like a mother to me and a friend! I will miss her sweet smile, laughter and just hearing her voice. May she Rest In Peace. Our condolences to Gus, Jeff, Margie, Laura & Tony, as well as your children! Hugs to you all!!
