Eleanor Ent Obituary

Eleanor (Clark) Ent
Age 87, of Loyalhanna Twp. passed away in the comfort of her home surrounded by family on Wednesday, November 8, 2023. She was born on September 22, 1936 in Pittsburgh, PA to Charles and Irene (Antal) Clark. Eleanor is preceded in death by her husband, Girard W. Ent and son, Clark G. Ent. She is survived by two daughters, Emilie (James) McGinnis and Veronica "Vickie" (Leonard Dombrowski, Jr.) Ent; a son, Carl (Stacy) Ent; ten grandchildren, Joseph (Theresa), Andrew, Jeremiah (Rachel), David, and Rachel McGinnis, Jennifer and Calvin Ent, Christopher Dombrowski, Brent Bulebosh, and Johnna (Robbie) Fabrizi; also survived by 4 great grandchildren. Eleanor enjoyed her time restoring an old farm and schoolhouse, raising fancy poultry, riding and driving her horses, studying Christian faith, playing her organ, and enjoying the fine arts. Most of all, she enjoyed her family in which she dedicated every day of her life. Eleanor was the daughter of Charles T. Clark, the son of D. L. Clark and founder of the Clark Candy Company of Pittsburgh. Charles was the president of the Clark Chewing Gum Company that popularized the nostalgic Teaberry gum and others. As a young teen, Eleanor attended the Ellis School and later received her bachelor’s degree in fine arts (painting) from Carnegie Technical Institute (Carnegie Mellon University). Prior to marriage, she was an art teacher for the Shaler Area School District in the late 1950s. In 1960, Eleanor married Girard W. Ent the only son of the late Major General Uzal G. Ent. Together, they elected to leave Pittsburgh and raise their children on a farm. Girard worked as an engineer for Westinghouse until he retired, and later passed in 2003. One of Eleanor’s greatest achievements was the restoration and preservation of the Concord One Room Schoolhouse (circa 1850) which still resides on the farm. Due to her efforts, the schoolhouse is the last remaining historical building in Loyalhanna Township which was saved and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. She enjoyed providing this preserved site to the community and sharing the stories of the school. Today, the schoolhouse is accompanied by her collection of horse-drawn carriages and antique reed organs in an adjacent building for the public to visit. Eleanor was known for her kind and free spirit, never without a new idea or project. Her passion for life, the Lord, and others remains an inspiration for anyone that knew her.
