Eleanor Rasmussen (Bartholomew)

May 1, 1929 — July 26, 2021

Eleanor Mae Rasmussen, 92, of Pierson, passed away on July 26, 2021, at Spectrum Health United Memorial Hospital in Greenville. The daughter of Arza H. and Mary L. (Badge) Bartholomew, Eleanor was born on May 1, 1929, in Grand Haven.

Always on the move, Eleanor was never one to stay still for very long. She loved to travel, go for walks, do some fishing, go camping, and look for mushrooms. In fact, she was still tent camping into her 70’s! As long as she was moving, she was happy. Eleanor was content just being the passenger on a nice car ride. She loved cats and would rescue them whenever she could. She was a rescuer of all types of animals, if she saw an animal on the road that looked like it was in trouble, Eleanor would try to help. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her and will leave a lasting memory in the hearts of many.

Eleanor is survived by her children, Karen (Vern) Keeler, Sue Rasmussen, Marilyn (Craig) Thorington; her friend of over 50 years, Paul Korcal; her grandchildren, Jon (Rebecca) Betham, Scott (Amy) Betham, Ryan (Shannon) Betham, Heather (John) Sherwood, Daniel (Jessica) Babbitt, Tara (Ryan) Reginek, Tracy Barthel, Suzanne (Joseph) Kormos, her great grandchildren; Trent Betham, Jordan Betham, Makenzie Jollands, Olivia Betham, Krista Larsson, Michelle Simmons, Shaun Betham, Jade Betham, Alexis Sherwood, Christopher Sherwood, Kaitlyn Sherwood, William Farrell, Logan Farrell, Jenna Babbitt, Chelsea Babbitt, TanaBeth Miller, Latisha Tissue, Candace Voss, Caprese Calderon, Locklin Calderon, Petra Calderon, Weston Rasmussen, Brooke Keeler, Nine great great grandchildren, along with many other extended family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, all her brothers and sisters, and a step granddaughter Melissa Keeler.
