Eleanor Ann Valk was born in Fond du Lac, WI on February 11, 1927, a daughter of Catherine (Heiting) and Francis Valk. When she was a young girl, her family moved to Stanley, WI, where she was raised and received her education, graduating from Stanley High School in 1945. Eleanor was united in marriage to Adam Michur in 1947. She worked in Withee alongside her husband in their business, Michur Trucking and Excavating, and later ran the parts counter for their business, Michur Implement, where she was "the best parts person in the area." After they divorced, Eleanor moved to Neillsville and worked for Schwellenbach Implement, in Christie, for many years. After her retirement, she remained in Neillsville for several years before moving to Thorp.
Eleanor had many interests, but especially loved spending time with family and friends, playing cards, polka dancing, growing flowers, and a "few" special trips to the casino.
She is survived by 2 daughters: Diane (Pat) Albrecht of Athens, WI; Cindy (Marvin) Mengel of Lublin, WI; 3 sons: Dan Michur of Stevens Point, WI; Wayne Michur (Patty Sweet) of Berlin, WI; Michael Michur (Gayle Nelson) of Minneapolis, MN; 11 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; one sister: Mary (Terry) Stewart of Mandan, ND; 4 brothers: Bob (Pat) Valk of Stanley, WI; Ed (Ione) Valk of Eau Claire, WI, Jerry (Georgiana) Valk of Arcadia, WI; Bill (Elaine) Valk of Zephyrhills, FL; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; one daughter: Cathy Michur; one brother: Donald Valk; and 3 sisters: Beatrice Haas, Bonnie Truse and Carol Sopiarz.
