Eleanor Travis

March 18, 1934 — July 22, 2020


Eleanor Louise Travis, 86, passed away July 22, 2020 at Rocky Mountain Care in Evanston.

She was born March 18, 1934 in Bison, South Dakota to Clarence E and Ruth S Anderson Albertson. She loved to garden, cook, and always enjoyed her grandchildren. She was very proud of her degree as a registered nurse and she was the director of nursing at the Veterans Administration in Reno.

After retiring, she would travel with her best friend Opal in an RV through the states of Colorado, Missouri, Illinois, and Kansas. In her later years, she loved to discuss nursing with CNA’s and RN’s at home health.

Eleanor was a devout Seventh Day-Adventist Christian and she was everyone’s “grandma”.

She also collected memorabilia like collector plates, fine china, crystal, silver, and ceramics.

Eleanor was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Travis; a son, Robert Bisgaard; her best friend Opal; and three brothers, Rolland, Wayne, and Gerald Albertson.

She is survived by her sons, Fred (Darlene) Bisgaard, Ed (Wanda) Bisgaard and Robert Walker; her grandchildren, Derrick (Emily) Bisgaard, Nevin Bisgaard, Josh Bisgaard, Jessi Wright, Tiffany Feil and Cassie Land; and 7 great grandchildren; two brothers, Jim Albertson and Frank Albertson and a sister, Charlene Swanson.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 3:00 PM at the Bear River State Park.
