Eleonore was born in Rockwell, Iowa to Gabriel & Martha Ziegler. She spent her childhood in Rockwell and attended school there.

She was married to George F. Dirks , June 27, 1927, in Coleridge, Nebraska. Eleonore and George were parents to seven children.


This Poem was written by George F. Dirks after Eleonore's death.
Her Cheerful Smile
Why was she loved by one and all?
It was her cheerful smiling face!
Even when summoned by death's call
This loving smile did not erase.

Though many times her heart was sad,
She never showed it by a frown!
Her purpose was to make folks glad
When they by sorrow were cast down.

For all she had a cheerful smile
In sunny or in cloudy days,
It helped them go the second mile
When facing life's dismays.

Her cheerful smile none can forget.
E'n though she's left this earthly home.
She'll be with us in spirit yet
Until we see God's Kingdom come!

To many this will never be
Because they live for earth alone
But Eleonore's face we hope to see
When Christ returns upon His throne.
