Obituary for Eleanor Louise Rix


May 29th, 1927 – March 10th, 2019

City of Birth: Tupper Lake, NY

Passed Away at: Tarzana, CA

In Celebration of a Loving Wife & Mother…

Eleanor Louise (Jarvis) Rix, 91, of Tarzana, CA passed away Sunday, March 10th at Tarzana Health & Rehabilitation Center. She was born May 29th, 1927 to William & Eleanor (Cahill) Jarvis in Tupper Lake, NY in the Adirondack Mountains. She later moved to Rochester, NY and was a telephone switchboard operator and then spent several years as a secretary before moving to Buffalo, NY where she became a full-time wife and mother.

Eleanor is preceded in death by her brother William Jarvis; her husband, William George Rix, to whom she was a loving wife of 45-years before his passing in 2012; and is survived by their only child, William Gregory Rix of Simi Valley, CA who will cherish her memory and the close mother-son relationship they shared.

Eleanor was an animal lover who shared her homes and heart with numerous dogs and cats over her lifetime, including her beloved cat Peanuts who she leaves behind to be cared for by her son. She loved to cook (her Pot Roast was unrivaled), enjoyed listening to all styles of music (Judy Garland’s ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ was her favorite song) and was an avid follower of news & politics (leaving behind an impressive collection of JFK memorabilia).

Her cremated remains, along with those of her husband’s, will be spread in Western New York at a later date in 2019.

“Though the body has left us, the presence is left.”
