Eleanor McArdle

October 25, 1928April 14, 2018

McArdle, Eleanor (Sheridan) of West Islip. Surrounded by family, on April 14, Ellie left us. Master of the eye-roll and the worst singing voice ; she left us with a sense of loss that will last forever. Youngest child of the late Edith (Halloway) and John Sheridan M.D., widow of John (USMC) , Ellie grew up in the Bronx, lived in San Diego and Charlottesville, before returning to Long Island. She was a graduate of the Ursuline Academy and the Art Student League of NY. Beneficiaries of her proud Irish humor, strength and love are children, Maureen Sheridan, Kathleen Knacke, Jack, Elizabeth Marie (dec), Colleen Russo, Patrick, and Brian. Her 13 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren will miss Gramie Ellie. She took immense joy in numerous nieces, nephews, and friends, who have laughed with her and learned from her. She so loved her pets that preceded her over the rainbow bridge: please celebrate Ellie by giving to your local animal rescue.
