Obituary

Eleanor Ione Morgan age 80 of Salem, Indiana passed away Saturday November 20, 2021 at the U of L Hospital-Jewish Campus. 

Born November 24, 1940 in Salem, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late Charles S. Altemeyer, and Hazel I. (True) Altemeyer.  She was a homemaker, a member of the old West Point United Methodist Church, and a 1958 graduate of Salem High School.  She was a member of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Washington County Relay For Life, Washington County Awareness, and the Washington County Tourism committee.  With her husband, Vaughn, she also volunteered at West Baden and French Lick during the restoration of those properties.  

On February 25th 1962, she married her high school sweetheart, Vaughn E. Morgan.  Until his death in August 2010, they were devoted to one another and rarely apart. Eleanor followed Vaughn to Indianapolis, IN, Pittsburgh, PA, Fountain Valley, CA, Redmond, WA, and Alexandria VA, during the course of their marriage, but she always considered Washington County home.  

She was a wonderful mother to her two daughters, Holly Morgan (Jonathan Brendle), and Julie Morgan-Bilyou (Jeff Bilyou).  Survivors also include one grandchild, one brother, Donald Altemeyer of Indianapolis, and one sister, Helen Morgan of Salem.  She was preceded in death by one brother, Stanley Altemeyer.
