Eleanora Louise Haussler, age 97, of Arapahoe, Nebraska passed away on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at C.A. Mues Good Samaritan Center, Arapahoe, Nebraska. She was born on March 25, 1922 in Gosper County, Nebraska to E.H. and Minna (Meyers) Huxoll. She was baptized on March 27, 1922 at St. Matthews Lutheran Church. She attended St Matthews Parochial School. On May 31, 1936 she was confirmed at St. Matthews Lutheran Church. Eleanora was one of five siblings: Gertrude (Rodenbeck), Art, Ervin, Eleanora, and twin brother, Elmer. Elmer died in infancy. The family lived on the farm in Gosper County northwest of the Muddy Creek. She was united in marriage to Ervin Haussler on January 1, 1941 at the Norton County Courthouse.
