Eleanor Louise (Walker) Caplinger entered the fullness of eternal life on August 4, 2014 after a full life of nearly 88 years. She passed away in Hermitage, Tennessee having moved there in 2011 to be with her daughter and family. She was a blessing-giver and a beautiful ray of God's light. She made wonderful music both with her piano and with her personality. Eleanor was a lovely woman of quick wit and deep wisdom. She was mirthful and she was determined. She was a southern Indiana country girl with a bounty of both intelligence and common sense. She loved well...and she was well-loved.
Eleanor was born on August 11, 1926 in Orange County, Indiana near the small town of Orleans to Ralph E. Walker and Myrtie I. (Roberts) Walker. Eleanor grew up on a modest family farm that was known for its progressive and innovative practices. Eleanor received her life-long love of music from her mother and followed in her mother's footsteps by being the church pianist and organist first at the Syria (IN) Christian Church and then at the Paoli (IN) Christian Church for decades. Eleanor's love of music embraced many genres and styles. She seemed to know all the words of every popular song from the 1920's through the 1960's.
Eleanor received her primary school education in a one-room school and then moved on to Orleans high school where she graduated both as the valedictorian of her class and as the graduating student with the highest grade point average from all the county high schools in 1943.
Eleanor married Russell Lowell Caplinger of Paoli, Indiana on August 19, 1945 in a family ceremony in the home of her parents. Her red hair and slim figure made her a beautiful woman. Eleanor and Russell remained married for nearly 66 years until his death in April 2011.
Eleanor and Russell founded "Uncle John's Cider, Candy and Gift Stores" of Indiana in 1947 and ran as many as six stores in various small towns. This family business was a true partnership of hard work, creativity, and friendly service which pleased thousands of customers over the course of more than fifty years. Eleanor was the chief candy maker, bookkeeper, business manager and sage business consultant to her husband as they created their version of a successful small business that employed others, pleased their customers, contributed to the charm of their community and provided a steady income for themselves and their family.
Eleanor was a woman of strong and deep faith in God. Her convictions were real and her heart was big. In 1963 she was one of the charter members of Paoli Christian Church, a church that was dear to her heart for the next 51 years. In addition to being a member of the worship team, she was always involved in Bible studies, Sunday school, women's groups and other outreaches of the church.
In their retirement years Eleanor and Russell wintered in Sun City, Florida, traveled to 48 of the states, including Alaska, and many of the provinces of Canada as well as a very special trip to Israel. In between trips Eleanor crocheted, knitted, sewed, was an avid reader, learned all about investments, played her beloved piano, and loved on her three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Eleanor was a wonderful mother to her daughter, Diana Louise (Caplinger) Antanaitis of Hermitage, Tennessee. They shared many mother-daughter loves and Eleanor birthed in Diana another generation of a life-long love of music and singing. They had a special bond on many levels and shared similar loves and enjoyments of so many things.
Eleanor passed on many things to her family and her friends and even to those she had only fleeting encounters with. Eleanor was one of those World War II generation people who were "great" people because they actually were simple people with rather simple lives, but who had extraordinary values and principles and they lived their lives with a quiet nobility and goodness. They did the right things because they were the right things to do and they expected no praise or recognition for doing them. That was Eleanor. She was generous and kind, hardworking and faithful, loving and very talented. She was humble and friendly and unpretentious and decent and honorable. She loved God. She loved her friends. She loved her family...and they knew it.
Eleanor was pre-deceased by her brother, William Walker of Columbus, Indiana. She is survived by daughter and son-in-law Diana (Caplinger) and Michael Antanaitis of Hermitage; grandchildren Edymar and Sarah (Antanaitis) Penagos of Chattanooga, TN, Isaac and Juli Antanaitis of Chattanooga TN, and Micah Antanaitis of Nashville, TN; great-grandchildren Eleanor, Naomi and John Antanaitis of Chattanooga; sister-in-law Mary Walker of Columbus, IN; and niece and nephews Gina (Walker) Johnson, Gary Walker, and Greg Walker and Geoffrey Walker.
