Mrs. Eleanor Gilmour Garner, 96; known to many older residents of Centralia as Aunt Ellen Gilmour, died at St. Mary’s hospital last night. She had been a patient there since 1936 when she fractured a hip. Her death was attributed to the infirmities of old age.

She resided almost her entire life near Centralia, and for many years was a teacher in rural schools west of Centralia. For 21 years she was employed as a tailor and dressmaker at the S. P. Sicher Clothing store. Her only survivor is her brother, David F. Gilmour.

She was a member of the pioneer family that settled much of the land west of Centralia:
