Eleanor Louise Ireland was born on Saturday, August 12, 1916 at Tyndall, South Dakota to Frank and Anna (Hahn) Benesh. She earned her teacher’s certificate at Southern State Teacher’s College in Springfield and taught rural school for several years. Eleanor was united in marriage to Ben Ireland on June 22, 1943 at St. Leo Catholic Church in Tyndall. She was employed in the Bon Homme County Auditor’s office in Tyndall for 17 years. She and Ben farmed for many years prior to retiring to Scotland in July of 1974. She was a member of St. George Catholic Church, the National Catholic Society of Foresters, and the Landmann-Jungman Memorial Hopital Auxiliary. Eleanor passed away on Wednesday, December 26, 2012 at the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland at the age of 96 years, 4 months, and 14 days.
Eleanor’s memory will be cherished by her two children: son Lyle (Joann) Ireland of Scotland and daughter Luetta (Jerry) Roseth of Philip; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
In addition to her parents, Frank and Anna Benesh, she was preceded in death by her husband, Ben, in 2006; an infant daughter, Paulette; and two sisters: Luella (John) Camby and Marian Benesh.

Our condolences to the Ireland family. I was fortunate to visit with your mom within the past month and I know she was very proud of her kids and had every reason to be. The end of an era as we get to take their place as "elderly" but I am sure she was ready to be together with your father in a better place.

So sorry to read of the loss of your Mother. She was my 1st grade teacher and my first crush. A grand lady. May she rest in peace.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Eleanor. I have great memories of those days "a long time ago" in the Ochsner country school leading to those many "play days" on the Ireland farm where Eleanor's motherly presence as an "overseer" was needed. She can now join my mother and the other "sewing club ladies" and continue those valued relationships. May she now rest in peace.
