Eleanor Pauline was born Dec. 19, 1921, on the family farm north of Joy, to Thomas Orville and Coral Marguerite Bear Andress. She was a graduate of White Eagle Grade School, Aledo High School and Scovill Business College in Sterling, Ill., and had an accounting degree from Northern Illinois University.
Pauline retired from Deere and Co. in 1984 after 18 years, working prior to that for a supplier for Deere.
Pauline was an active member of several organizations, most recently American Association of University Women and its book club. She traveled but was a Midwesterner at heart.
Pauline is survived by three nephews and their families, Donald and Marilyn Andress, Illinois City, and Roger and Jodie Andress and Howard and Linda Andress, all of Aledo; and her sister-in-law, Aileen Andress, Aledo. Also surviving are cousins in Illinois, California and Massachusetts. She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Lyle and Clair, and his wife, Ellen; and nephew, Harold Eugene Andress.
