Eleanor Karbal Korn was born on September 8, 1928, and came home to Utica, Michigan, where she spent her earliest years. Her family moved to Detroit when she was young. She graduated from Central High School in the class of 1946. Eleanor went on to the University of Michigan, and later obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from Wayne State University in 1965.

In 1948, Eleanor Karbal married Monte Korn. Fast forward sixteen years, and the family grew with seven children. Eleanor and Monte enjoyed 64 years of their “love story.” Over time, the family of seven children grew two more generations. Eleanor and Monte were blessed with 14 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

Eleanor and Monte enjoyed their life together in Detroit, Southfield, and West Bloomfield. They enjoyed decades in Charlevoix, as well. They traveled the world, but always understood, “there is no place like home.”

Eleanor wore many hats in life. She was a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a great grandmother, volunteer, and yet, she still had time for more hats. Eleanor’s professional world included property management, education, and financial planning. Eleanor was a Certified Financial Planner for the last 25 years of her professional life.

Eleanor Karbal Korn lived a full life, finding joy and fulfillment in each day. She is survived by her sons and daughter-in-law, Larry Korn, Dr. Howard and Lynne Brooks-Korn, Stephen Korn, Rabbi R. and Shuli Korn; daughters and son-in-law, Linee Diem, Joanne and Dr. Michael Rowe, Nancy Korn Zelch; grandchildren, Jeff Diem (Fiancee Sarah Krivel), Melissa Rowe, Jeremy Rowe, Shalom Korn, Yisroel and Shiffi Korn, Sarah and Aleyahu Wilner, Yakov and Nomi Korn, Rachel Korn, Brittany Zelch, Jared Zelch, Jordan Zelch, Amy Diem, Shira Diem, and Rena Diem; great-grandchildren, Ephraim Korn, Chaya Korn, Uriel Korn, Hadassah Korn, Nachama Korn, Ben Tzion Korn, Chana Korn, Moshe Wilner, Penina Wilner, Taeva Diem Schroeder, and Elan Diem Schroeder.

Eleanor Karbal Korn is also survived by her sister, Beverly Mitz, and sister-in-law Phyllis Zatzick. She was the loving sister of the late Arlene Mehler Levenson, and the sister-in-law to the late Dr. Robert Korn and the late Annette Korn, the late Beulah Moss and the late David Moss, the late Leonard Mitz, the late Albert Levenson, and the late Morton Mehler. She is also survived by extended family (including our dear Lizzie Williams) and friends.
