Eleanor Crow Houyoux died on May 18, 2022, at the wonderful age of 101. She was born in New Jersey on November 27, 1920, to Laura and Charles Crow. She met the love of her life, Jack Houyoux, on a blind date at the age of 17. After their marriage three years later, the couple lived to celebrate their 72nd wedding anniversary before Jack’s death in 2013.
We will remember her as a loving mother with a lively sense of humor; an avid gardener, wielding a rototiller well into her nineties; and an accomplished round dancer with dancing friends in Maryland, West Virginia, and Florida.
She is survived by her children, Jacques Richard Houyoux, Anne Elizabeth Sims, and Eleanor H. Klebonis; grandchildren, Mary K. McLemore, John R. Klebonis, Jr., David L. Klebonis, Marc R. Houyoux, Charles A. Houyoux, Kelly Sims Faircloth, and Michelle Sims Heiter; and twenty great-grandchildren.
