December 11, 1931 - November 7, 2021
Eleanor Biaggini Molnar, 89, passed away peacefully at home early on Sunday morning, November 7. Eleanor was born and raised on her parents' cattle ranch outside of Cayucos, CA and attended Mission San Luis Obispo Elementary School. Her high school and college years were spent in Hollywood, CA, first at Immaculate Heart High School and then Immaculate Heart College, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, received her teaching credentials, and studied special education at the university of Southern California. After college, she returned to the family ranch and began teaching at Morro Bay elementary School. While there, she met and married Michael J. Molnar, Sr. They were married for 38 years until Michael's death in 1994. After the birth of their first child, she devoted herself full time to rearing the children, occasionally serving as a substitute teacher at Cayucos Elementary School. When her children were grown, she embarked on graduate work at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and subsequently earned her Master's Degree in Special Education. Throughout her life, Eleanor was an active, engaged member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church. She served there as a Eucharistic minister, catechism teacher, and enthusiastic contributor to and participant in numerous Church events. Together with her husband, she was a lifelong supporter of the Lion's and Rotary Clubs. She was actively involved with the PTA and any other educational interest that might further the edification of children. Despite her buys schedule, she always seemed to find the time for the many community organizations that benefited from her support and participation. When she found time, Eleanor traveled extensively throughout Europe, Central America, Hawaii, and the continental United States. She was an avid reader and any visitor to her home would inevitably find her with a book, newspaper, or magazine. Perhaps most of all she loved spending time with her family and is survived by her children, Michael, Nicholas, James, Patrick, Marise, and Lisa, by her eleven grandchildren, and by her sister Kathleen Biaggini Longmire. On Monday, November 15, there will be a memorial mass at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Cayucos at 10:00am, followed by a reception on church grounds. The private interment will take place concurrently at the Cayucos-Morro Bay Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates any donations in Eleanor's name to Hospice of San Luis Obispo or to St. Josephs Catholic Church in Cayucos.
