Searching for information on Eleanor Hill Irving
« on: Thursday 11 October 12 13:21 BST (UK) »
I know Eleanor Hill Irving died in Boston 08 November 1965.
She went to America in 1944 as a nanny. Before World War II
she worked in Paris as a nanny, the daughter married am American
service man and she went to America with them to be a nanny to their family.
She spent the rest of her life with this family, and returned to England several times on holiday
to visit her sisters in Leyland, Lancashire.

I have been unsuccessful in finding a death notice or obituary, or even a last address.
Against all hope it would be great to make contact with the family she looked after.

Hope someone can help
Frances
