Eleanor was born on July 2, 1936, in Ramona, South Dakota, to Alfred and Hulda (Schlichtkrull) LeBahn. She was raised on the family farm, attending school in Oldham. After her high school graduation in 1954, Eleanor moved to San Francisco, California, to work. There she met Jerry Darter, and the couple married in 1956. They had three children. Over the years, and several moves for Jerry's job, Eleanor worked as a teacher and as a clerk for J.C .Penney's. In the early '90s while working for J.C. Penney's, the couple moved to Fairview, Montana, and Eleanor worked at the J.C. Penney's in Sidney. While there, Eleanor retired. The couple relocated one more time, in 2009, to Rudyard to be near their younger daughter.

Eleanor enjoyed sewing, quilting, and doll making and collecting. She loved caring for her husband and family. She was a Christian woman whose faith guided her daily, and her husband adored her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred and Hulda LeBahn; two brothers; and two sisters.

Eleanor is survived by Jerry Darter of Rudyard, her husband of 63 years; children, Erica (Paul) Mueller of Fairview, Darla Owens of Havre, and Richard (Kathleen Smith) of Phoenix, Arizona; six grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; beloved dogs, Bert and Curly; sister Doris Fischer of Minnesota; and numerous nieces and nephews.
