1920-2014

Elenor Virginia Schelling Koch entered into rest on Saturday, May 24, 2014, in Reunion Plaza in Tyler, Texas. She was born to Kurt and Elise Schelling on July 1, 1920, in Nordheim, DeWitt County.

Elenor was baptized in infancy by Rev. Klugen and was later confirmed by T.J. Roth in Nordheim. She was a Sunday school teacher for many years. Elenor attended school in Nordheim and graduated with the class of 1938. After graduation she became interested in nursing and decided this would be her career. After working for several years in a hospital in Floresville, she decided to enter nurses training in 1942. She did so at the M&S Hospital (now Baptist) in San Antonio. Due to a high scholastic average and satisfactory performance, Elenor was granted a leave of absence to pursue special training at John Sealy in Galveston. She graduated as a registered nurse after having passed the State Board in 1945. She had also enlisted in Nurses Cadet Choir.

On March 2, 1947, Elenor married Herman Koch of Moulton. They continued to make Floresville their home and had two sons. Elenor retired after Herman’s death in 1985. Later she moved to San Antonio and lived with or close by Barry and his family. She enjoyed family, cooking, sewing, and camping.

Elenor was a member of First Lutheran Church in Floresville for many years, and after moving to Tyler was a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Tyler.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Herman Koch; and her sisters, Irene and Evelyn Schelling. Elenor is survived by her sons, Barry Keith Koch and wife Helen and Craig Neal Koch and wife Anne; grandchildren Spencer, Sean, Danielle, Allison, and Mallory Koch, all of Tyler; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation and a funeral service will be held on Wednesday, May 28, at 7 p.m. in the Stewart Family Funeral Home in Tyler.

A visitation also will be held on Friday, May 30, at 10 a.m. in the Vinyard Funeral Home in Floresville.
