Obituary for Eleanor E. Curfman

VIENNA, VA - Eleanor E. Curfman, 86, of Vienna, Virginia, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones and entered fully into the presence of her Lord and Savior on Monday, October 15, 2018, following a battle with cancer.

She was born on January 20, 1932, in Rosefield Township, Illinois, to the late George and Clara Marie (Weber) Fail. Eleanor was a twin and took great pride in letting people know she had a twin sister and the story of their birth. Eleanor was raised in Edwards by her late parents, her mother and stepdad, Harry Slane, whom she considered to be her father.

On August 5, 1950, Eleanor married Floyd Curfman at St. Michael's in Kahoka, Missouri. While Floyd was in the Army and going to college on the GI Bill, Eleanor worked for the Salvation Army, Western Union, and the phone company.

Eleanor was the number one cheerleader for her grandchildren and enjoyed attending their sporting events and school programs. Eleanor was an avid reader of The Word, attending Bible Study for years. She enjoyed visiting relatives, traveling, quilting and trains. Eleanor loved to go out for lunch and dinner with her husband and family.

She is survived by her husband, Floyd, and children: Gary (Carol) Curfman of Cazenovia, Wisconsin and Karen (Todd) Bell of Vienna, Virginia; grandchildren: Michelle (Joby) Jerrells, Eric (Cassie) Vanevenhoven, Jordan (Maki) Vanevenhoven, and Rabecca Vanevenhoven; great grandchildren: Jonathan, Rachel, Faith, Harper and Lauren. She is further survived by her sisters: twin Evelyn Clinging of Quincy, IL and Lorraine Gunter of Edwards, IL; and sister-in-law Lucille Bundren of Galesburg, IL.

Cremation rites have been accorded. Services will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at noon at The Wilton Mortuary in Peoria with Rev. Howard Love officiating. A burial of ashes will follow at Cottonwood Cemetery in Hanna City.
