Eleanor P. (Tubbs) Jennings, 88, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at the Fort Hudson Nursing Home surrounded by her loving family.

Born March 20, 1931 in Fort Ann, NY, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Verna (Wells) Tubbs. She spent her childhood on their family dairy farm.

Eleanor graduated from Fort Ann Central School as Valedictorian of the Class of 1949.

On January 26, 1952, she married Vaughn “Red” Jennings in Indiana. He was her best friend and the love of her life. Together they raised their family until his passing in 2005.

She attended First Baptist Church of South Glens Falls where she enjoyed the Senior Saints Luncheons. Eleanor also previously attended Pine Knolls Alliance.

Eleanor and Red were members of the Good Sam Club with which they went camping in York, ME, Minerva, Warrensburg, and Springfield, VT.

Eleanor also worked as a bookkeeper at Inside Edge, Pride Motors, and Parsons Fords. After her retirement, she and her husband enjoyed caring for children and were lovingly referred to as Grammy and Boppy. Eleanor also enjoyed camping, ceramics, crocheting, Bingo, word searches, playing cards, watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, word jumbles while drinking her morning coffee and eating donuts every morning, collecting cardinals, and spending time with her family.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Eleanor is predeceased by her brother, Earl Tubbs, her sister, Joyce Poupore, and her stepson David Jennings.
