On February 20, 1935 she married Earl R. Anderson and they made their life together on a farm near Wilcox, Nebraska.

She worked the next 9 years in various positions at the Hastings High School Cafeteria. After retiring she volunteered at the Martin Luther Thrift store and Mary Lanning Memorial Health Center. Eleanor was recognized by the hospital for volunteering over 2000 hours as a Pink Lady. She was a member of Faith Lutheran Church in Hastings.
