IRON MOUNTAIN - Eleanor C. Miller, 97, of Iron Mountain, died Monday, Jan. 1, 2007, at ManorCare Health Services.

She was born on March 21, 1909, in Iron Mountain, the daughter of the late Rudolph and Susie (Troyan) Conrad.

Eleanor was a lifelong resident of Iron Mountain and a graduate from Iron Mountain High School, being the last living graduate of the class of 1927. She was a WAC in World War II. Eleanor worked as a floral designer at Stanley's Greenhouse and Miller Floral. She also worked as a clerk at J.C. Penney's.

For many years Eleanor repaired dolls and made doll clothes for the firemen to distribute at Christmas. She enjoyed gardening, playing bridge, sewing, knitting, crocheting, reading, and crossword puzzles. Her garden was the envy of the neighborhood and she felt close to God there.

Eleanor is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Monica and Robert Mortel of Escanaba; her grandson, Marc Mortel of Grand Rapids, lower Michigan and many nieces and nephews.
