Her family moved to rural Lenox, Iowa, where she grew up on the family farm. She graduated from Lenox High School in 1959, and attended college in Maryville, MO. Eleanor worked at the Okey-Vernon Bank in Corning, where she met her husband of 57 years, Steven Glen Stueckradt. They married on March 15, 1964, and together raised their family in Corning. Eleanor spent her time at home raising their three sons, and worked alongside Steve at Home Bakery in Corning. She decorated many beautiful wedding, birthday, and graduation cakes for the community. Steve and Eleanor later opened Breadeaux Pisa restaurants in Boonville, MO, Red Oak, IA and Corning.
