Eleanor was born May 27, 1935, in her parent’s home in rural Johnson County, the daughter of Albert and Helen (Povonder) Stinocher. She was united in marriage to Norman Brumwell on March 10, 1956, in Iowa City. Together they worked in the family business, Brumwell Flour Mill, which was started in Solon and later moved to South Amana. Eleanor’s passion was baking breads and especially kolaches. She enjoyed mushroom hunting in spring, sewing and quilting. The time spent with her loving family was very important to her.
