OBITUARY

Eleanor Emily Satriano

December 20, 1929February 17, 2021

Eleanor Emily Satriano, 91, of Houston, Texas passed away peacefully at home on February 17, 2021. She was surrounded by family and will be missed, especially by those who call her Ellie, Mom, Grandma, Gram, Memaw, GG or Aunt Honey.

Eleanor was born December 20, 1929 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to James and Helen Bullotta. She was raised in Pittsburgh along with two brothers and a sister, and enjoyed growing up next door to cousins. She graduated from St. Justin High School in 1948 then traveled to Europe with her aunt that summer. It was through her aunt’s friend that she would meet her husband, Albert Satriano. After learning of her love for sweets, he was able to charm her with many gifts of chocolate! They were married on June 14, 1951.

The marriage brought three children who were the joy of Eleanor’s life; Karen in 1955, Dale in 1957 and Jane in 1961. Then, in 1966 the family moved to Texas. It was a challenge for Eleanor leaving behind the extended family she loved so much, but it was during this time she discovered a love and talent for painting. She took art classes and spent many hours with her new passion. Her family will treasure the many works of art she leaves behind.

Eleanor also loved to listen to music and dance. She had fun dancing at family weddings and spent many Saturday nights dancing with her husband once their children were grown. She had a good sense of humor and always loved to joke, especially with her grandchildren. If she had an opinion, she certainly wasn’t shy about sharing it and most of the time was ready for good debate. She loved her family fiercely, especially spending time with them, and used “face time” to connect when travel became difficult. This connection became even more important once great grandchildren came along. She was fairly adept at using Facebook and usually the first to see breaking news!

Those she leaves to mourn are her husband of 69 years, Albert Satriano; children, Karen Satriano, Dale (Laurie) Satriano, and Jane Herman; grandchildren, Peter Zama, Kristin (Greg) Feeney, Jamie (TJ) Hinkle, Kimberly (Parker) Terry, Joey (Tiffani) Satriano, John (Danielle) Satriano and Josh (Caroline) Satriano; great-grandchildren, Lucy Feeney, Texas Feeney, Kenley Hinkle, Gavin Terry, Rowan Hinkle, Eli Terry, Shelby Feeney, Reese Hinkle, Rocco Satriano and George Satriano; sister, Josephine Klein and many nieces and nephews. Eleanor was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, Pete and Jim Bullotta, son-in-law Gary Herman and granddaughter, Julie Satriano.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Vanessa Valencia for her care and companionship during the last few months of Eleanor’s life.

At a future date, a mass and burial will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the American Lung Association (www.lung.org) in her memory.

Although I only knew Eleanor for a few years (my daughter, Tiffani, married her grandson Joey), the moment I met her, I loved her dearly. She had a “spunk” about her that touched my heart and we became Facebook buddies. I’m so thankful I had these few years to get to know her. I know she will be missed by all of her family ❤️

One of my best friends is Joanne Klein. Through her I came to know her Aunt Honey. Her personality and charm led a few of us to also call her Aunt Honey. Our last few years as Facebook friends introduced me to her talent, her humor and her amazing memory which she happily shared with the Mt. Washington crew. She loved her family dearly. She will be missed. Please accept my condolences.
