My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Eleanor for the first time years ago at a barbecue held by her daughter Susan and her husband, Patrick at their home in Erial, NJ. We enthusiastically
greeted each other and followed it with a hug. It seemed like the most natural thing to do! Eleanor was so warm, kind and loving! And whenever Susan spoke so lovingly of her mother through the years, my mind would flash back to the day when we first met. What a wonderful woman!

Dear Susan and family
It was our love for our mothers that kept us laughing and crying on many nightshifts at Jefferson Hospital. We both had mothers that fought a good fight, took care of their families and still managed to make us laugh. They saw the good in everybody and everything. I know I can't make the pain go away but I want you to know we are here. 💜💜💜 Kim and Nate

Dearest Susan and Family,
We are heartbroken for your loss. Eleanor was kind, caring, selfless and hard working....she was everything a Mom should be and all that a child could be blessed with.
They say that a person dies twice...once when they stop breathing and again when no one says their name. We will speak Eleanor’s name and keep her memory alive. We’ll share your grief and then your memories...and your Mom will look down from heaven and be happy in her heart to see you remember and love her forever....as she loves you.

Miss Eleanor always met us with a smile and kiss. She was so proud of her family and glowed when she talked about her grandkids.
And oh how she loved to cook especially holiday family favorites. For her it wasnt work. Every bite was filled with love. All the people she touched lived a richer life.
Our deepest sympathy to her family,
Mike and Becky
