Eleanor Lucille Moses Mathena passed away on October 21, 2017. She was born in Giles County on February 22, 1926, to the late Compton Black Moses and Edna Lucille Moses. Eleanor was preceded in death by her husband Harold H. Mathena and siblings Lois Moses Nelson, Betty Lee Moses and Compton R. (Buddy) Moses. She was raised in the Bluefield, Virginia, area and was a proud graduate of Graham High School where she graduated as valedictorian. She was an All-State Basketball player and in later years an accomplished golfer. She was a World War II bride and relocated to Giles County after the war. She and Harold operated a building supply business there for many years before she became a deputy treasurer for Giles County.
