The Martin House Restoration Corporation mourns the recent loss of Mrs. Eleanor Greatbatch.
Born in 1920, Mrs. Greatbatch earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Buffalo State College and became a Home Economics teacher. She raised five children with her husband, Wilson Greatbatch, and later became an accomplished weaver. She was a steadfast, supportive partner in her husband’s many innovative projects, including the development of the implantable pacemaker.
