    About Eleanor Hillger
    Eleanor Hillger 1917 – 2003: “Live life with no regrets”. That was Ellie Hillger’s motto.
    She lived life to the fullest by being enthusiastic and adventurous, surpassing all standards of excellence with her commitments,  exploring the out-of-doors, living life without judgment and being there for others.
                                                                                         
    Ellie, one of four sisters, was born on a farm in the very, very small town of Buckfield, Maine. She began her education in a one-room, red schoolhouse – elementary through high school – and then attended Bates College in Lewiston, ME. Ellie continued living an adventurous life during subsequent years while practicing her profession of Occupational Therapy. She then accepted a five-year teaching career at USC. 
                                          
    At 40 years of age, she enthusiastically took on a new commitment. Ellie married artist/philosopher, Mel Hillger, settled in the Hollywood Hills, and was the best mom to their only daughter, Bonnie. It was also during this time that Ellie attained her Masters Degree from USC

    Ellie then selected another adventure: a teaching career in Occupational Therapy Department at L.A.C.C. from 1971 – 1985. The position required her to not only educate her students (with integrity) in the classroom, but to ready  them for their clinical internships as well. Finally, she traveled throughout the county to visit and evaluate each one of them in their clinical positions.

    As with everything else she has done in life, Ellie committed herself wholeheartedly. 
          
    Ellie Hillger encourages all of us to “Live with no regrets.” She did. Bravo!
