      There they started both a business (Vrba's Garage) and their family.
      The couple celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in June of
      1985, Shortly thereafter, Jerry passed away on December 8, 1986. In
      1988, Eleanor moved back to her hometown of West. While living in
      Corpus, the Vrba's were members of St. Patrick's Catholic Church and
      St. Theresa's Catholic Church, where Eleanor was very active in
      helping the nuns at both parishes. Presently, Eleanor was a member
      of St. Mary's Catholic Church of the Assumption. She was also a
      member of the Catholic Daughters of America Court No. 246 and the
      Czech Club, both in Corpus. In West she enjoyed volunteering at West
      Community Hospital, where she very much enjoyed being a "pink lady".

      Her parents and all three of her brothers, Henry, Ben & Albert
