Eleanor Socin Obituary

Eleanor Socin,102, of Highland, Indiana passed away at home Friday, November 3, 2023.

Eleanor shared her musical talents and abilities by participating in and directing many church choirs and musical groups over the years as well as teaching elementary music in the School Town of Highland for 18 years. She had a keen flare and creative ability with her hands (sewing, embroidery, quilting and knitting) and with her words (poems, odes and acrostics) even up until the last years of her life. She touched many lives with her wit and creativity!

In retirement, Eleanor lived in Holiday Island, AR with her husband, John for 28 years until his passing in 2004.  Relocating back to Highland in 2005 she resided contentedly with her daughter and son-in-law for 18 years. Eleanor always kept her mind sharp by working crossword puzzles and was very faithful and active at the churches she attended over the years.
