Eleanor Farr Clark
Dec. 18, 1938 - March 14, 2022 Resident of Rossmoor

Eleanor was born to Sarah "Peg" Messerer Farr and Cecil Parker Farr on Dec. 18, 1938, in San Francisco, Calif. She passed away on March 14, 2022.
Eleanor's early life was impacted by World War II. When Cecil enlisted and went to Europe, Peg and Eleanor moved to Washington, D.C. After the war, the family settled in the San Francisco Bay Area. El attended Palo Alto High School before attending Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, earned her Bachelor of Art degree in Art History from the University of California at Berkeley.
El married Alan Roderick Clark in 1960. They enjoyed 56 years together. They settled in Moraga in 1964 and remained Moraga residents until 2013. El was a loving wife and devoted mother to their three children. She served many community and youth organizations: AAUW, Moraga Service League, teacher's aide at Los Perales Elementary. She was an avid fan of her children's activities; she never missed a football or baseball game, dance recital or swim team meet. She enjoyed hiking, camping, skiing, bird watching and genealogy. She and Alan made many trips to New England and the Midwest in search of their roots. They were rewarded with revolutionary ancestors and El became a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Eleanor loved travel and people. She and Alan found a second home in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. Over 30 years they hosted friends, made many new friends there, and enjoyed having their children's families join them on their annual sojourn.
El and Alan were members of First Covenant Church in Oakland. She served in the Sunday School, nursery and as a Deaconess.
Eleanor is preceded in death by her parents, and her loving husband Alan. She is survived by her children Stuart (Karen), Douglas (Karol) and Allison (Thomas), and five grandchildren.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2 p.m. May 7 at First Covenant Church, 4000 Redwood Road, Oakland, CA 94619. Flowers or memorial gifts may be sent to First Covenant Church.
