Eleanore “Stubby” was

born on April 9, 1923, to

John and Margaret (Ran-

dall) Hiatt on the family

farm north of Dunseith.

She grew up in the Turtle

Mountains and attended

the Ackworth School and

graduated from Dunseith

High School.

On October 31, 1942,

she married Elwood

Fauske in Bottineau, ND.

After their marriage, they

moved to Thompson, ND,

where Elwood worked as

a farm laborer. In 1946,

they moved back to Dun-

seith and Elwood worked

for the Rolette County

Soil Conservation Service

as a heavy equipment and

caterpillar operator.

Eleanore worked as a pas-

try chef at Dale’s Cafe.

They raised six children.

Eleanore always had a

deep, personal faith in

God and was an excellent

example to her children.

She and Elwood attended

Grace Lutheran Church in

Bottineau for many years,

where they enjoyed many

Bible studies. She was a

member of the Kelvin

Homemakers and TOPS

for many years. She was a

4-H leader and reached

out to share the love of

God with children. She

loved to read, bake, gar-

den and sew. She worked

at and sold numerous em-

broidery items at the

Front Porch on Cranberry

Creek in Bottineau for

many years. However, her

favorite times were

“family gatherings” and

spending time with her

children and grandchil-

dren. They said she also

knew how to yodel.

They purchased the

Hiatt family farm in 1962

and had a diversified farm

where Elwood raised beef

cattle and small grains.

Eleanore took a position

with the U.S. Post Office

in Dunseith and retired

after 30 years. Elwood re-

tired at the age of 80 and

they moved to Bottineau

in 2000. Elwood passed

away in 2017.
