Ewing, Angelica - Santa Barbara  
Ewing, Angelica Peale. Angelica Peale Ewing died peacefully on December 11, 2014, at home in Greenwich, CT, of lung cancer. At her death she was surrounded by her family. Angie was loved by many whose lives she touched through her twelve years as head of Cancer Care Volunteers at the Greenwich Hospital. She took a minor program and turned it into a vital part of the hospital's integrated approach to cancer care, with over 100 volunteers. She brought a deeply empathetic vision to the service of treating patients with this savage disease—and she was remembered and honored for this impact when she herself returned years later in need of treatment for the very illness she'd spent so long trying to defeat in others. Angie grew up in Washington, DC, daughter of Manuelita Boldt White and Walter White. Her mother was the granddaughter of George C. Boldt, manager of the Waldorf-Astoria and creator of Boldt Castle in the Thousand Islands. Her father ran the Business Advisory Council of the U.S. Department of Commerce from the time of its creation in 1933 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt until his retirement in 1958. She was a descendant of the painter and naturalist Charles Willson Peale, founder of one of the country's first museums. Angie attended the Potomac School, Madeira, Vassar College, and graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in French. She had a lifelong interest in foreign affairs, fueled by a year at the University of Grenoble in France, and worked for several years as a researcher at US News & World Report. She served for many years on the board of governors of the Off-the-Record Lecture Series of the Foreign Policy Association. In 1964 she married Edward G. Ewing at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. They lived for five years in New York City before moving to Greenwich in 1969. In later years she became an avid hiker and outdoorswoman. With her husband she hiked and biked in Kenya, France, England, Turkey, Nepal, New Zealand, and many other places. In the last month of Angie's life, she determinedly made a trip to London with her husband of 50 years to celebrate this special anniversary. Despite enormous health challenges, she joyously walked for miles in the countryside, reveled in the love of her English friends, and showered their grandchildren with adoration. Her life was punctuated by love, first by her charismatic father and glamorous mother, then by legions of suitors and one lucky and devoted husband of five decades, by two daughters who deeply admired her and have tried to emulate her life of service, and finally by her profound bonds with friends too numerous to count. Angie had no casual relationships, as each person was special to her. Some of her last words were instructions to her family to deliver Christmas presents she'd bought and wrapped for friends. In addition to her beloved husband, she is survived by two daughters, Heather Peale Ewing of New York and Jenny Ewing Allen of Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and one grandson, Walter Grady Allen, whose every word and action delighted her. She will be remembered for her great smile, enthusiasm, love of people, caring nature, and rhyming thank you letters and tributes. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to Direct Relief, www.directrelief.org (27 S. La Patera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA 93117); the Bendheim Cancer Center of the Greenwich Hospital, http://giving.greenhosp.org/home (35 River Road, Cos Cob, CT 06807); and the Montecito Trails Foundation, www.montecitotrailsfoundation.org (PO Box 5481, Santa Barbara, CA 93150).

Innes, Eleanor - Greenwich  
Innes, Eleanor E. ELEANOR E. INNES, 79, passed away peacefully on December 9, 2014, with her daughters by her side. Born on August 10, 1935 in New York City to Evelyn and William Eggers, she was the beloved wife for 56 years of James W. Innes, who predeceased her in 2011. She was the cherished mother of Deborah Innes and Pamela Strasburg and her husband Mark, and treasured grandmother of Emily and Christopher Strasburg. Eleanor's greatest pleasure was spending time with her family and friends. She was kind and loving, always seeing the good in people and inspiring others to do the same. Her beautiful smile would light up the room, as her sense of joy radiated to all around her. Ellie began her devotion to family and friends while growing up in Scarsdale, NY. She attended Skidmore College before moving to Williamstown when she married in 1955. She worked in the Williams College Art Department while she started friendships that would last throughout her life. She and Jim moved to New York City for his years of Medical School and then settled their family in Connecticut. A resident of Riverside for over 47 years, she embraced the pleasures of life there and was devoted to service in her community. She was passionate about entertaining, cooking, gardening and the arts, and was an avid reader, never without a book. She loved the beauty of the town of Greenwich, especially Greenwich Point and Binney Park, where she spent countless hours walking her dogs and sharing time with loved ones. A member of Innis Arden Golf Club for over 45 years, she was active with tennis and golf and loved the family of friends she developed there. She volunteered in the Greenwich schools and many community projects as she was raising her family and was devoted to St. Paul's Episcopal Church. She was an accomplished traveler, starting with trips to Europe during her teenage years. Many of her fondest memories were travel adventures shared with her family and friends and her home was filled with photographs and paintings from those travels. She and Jim spent winters in their home in Bonita Bay, Florida after he retired, where they grew their circle of friends with whom they shared a love of golf, enjoying the beach and sunsets over the Gulf, and their joy of entertaining. She moved to Edgehill in Stamford with Jim in 2011, and enjoyed making new friends, joining the Garden Club and taking trips to local museums and the opera. Eleanor is also survived by her brother Richard Eggers and his wife Lynda, her brother-in-law John Innes and his wife Marianne, and her beloved nieces and nephews and their families.

Nelson, Harry - Greenwich  
Nelson, Harry L. Harry L. Nelson passed away peacefully on December 4, 2014 at the Edgehill Senior Center in Stamford, CT. Harry was born on September 17, 1922 to Harry and Christina Nelson in Stamford, CT. Harry honorably served during World War II and was a true embodiment of what it meant to be part of the Greatest Generation. A printer by trade, he spent most of his career as a loyal employee of WJR Printers. Harry was a very handy man who took pride in his home and lawn. Even at 92, he could commonly be found in the yard raking leaves, planting and cutting the grass. For him, it was not just about maintaining the yard. For him, it was a true labor of love. Always a man of few words, those closest to Harry knew him as a humble and gentle man who would do anything for his family. It is not often that you can identify someone as completely selfless, but Harry was just that person. His loyal support and devotion to those he loved will forever remain his legacy and for that his family has been blessed. In 1947, Harry married the love of his life, Arline, and this past September, they celebrated their 67th year anniversary. Together they shared a lifetime of love and happiness that only a few people are lucky enough to enjoy. In her final years, he acted as a doting husband and caretaker without compliant. He now joins his bride in the afterlife, eternally by her side where he has always been happiest. He is survived by his son Gary Nelson and his wife Doreen of Stratford, his daughter Barbara Meno of Stamford, and his grandchildren, Michael Meno, Jeffrey Meno, Stephen Meno, Kylie Nelson and Kevin Nelson. He is predeceased by his wife Arline Nelson and his sister Marion Kach. A memorial service will take place at 3 pm Saturday, December 20th at the First Presbyterian Church (Fish Church), 1101 Bedford St, Stamford for those who would like to pay their respects. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project or another charity of your choice. http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/#

Paradise, Joan - Greenwich  
Paradise, Joan D. Joan Deutsch Paradise passed away peacefully on December 17, 2014 at Greenwich Hospital. She is survived by her children Robert C. Paradise of Boston, MA , James F. Paradise and his wife Binbin of Seoul, Korea, and Elizabeth P. Sweeney, her husband John, and their three children, Joan's grandchildren, Farrell, Kieran,and Christian Sweeney of Chapel Hill, NC. She also is survived by a brother Donald Deutsch of Chicago, Illinois. Joan was born in Niagara Falls, NY to Cyril and Marion Deutsch. Mr. Deutsch was a store manager for Sears Roebuck and Co., and that required him to move the family about, and they lived in Baltimore, MD, Evansville, IN, and Louisville, KY. Joan received her high school diploma from the Kentucky Home School for Girls in Louisville. She then went on to attend Finch Junior College in New York City, graduated, and then enrolled in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to complete a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology. She married Robert C. Paradise, Jr. in 1954,and raised her three children, briefly in Stuyvesant Town, New York City, but mostly in Old Greenwich. She later divorced and returned to work as a teacher's aide at several schools in Greenwich, went on to work at Family and Children's Services in Stamford, and also decided to take a continuing education course in Social Work Policy and Placement. The professor asked each student in the course how long it had been since their last college exam and she replied 26 years! That didn't deter her from entering NYU and earning her Master's of Social Work degree in clinical social work because it had been a lifelong dream and desire of hers to do good for others. She completed two internships, one at Bronx Psychiatric Hospital, and the other at New York Hospital/Cornell Medical Center. Upon graduation she returned to Family and Children's Services in Stamford where she spent nearly two decades making a difference in the lives of those in need. Even in her retirement she volunteered at the Family Center helping seniors navigate the complex world of supplemental health insurance. When Joan wasn't busy with her family and work, she loved to shop, dance, work out at NYSC and travel with her children. Some of her favorite trips included China, Japan, Italy and France via The Orient Express, Germany, Austria, the Caribbean, California and anywhere else that had a beach. In fact, Joan loved the beach so much that she was somewhat of a permanent fixture at Todd's Point in Old Greenwich, often found rallying a circle of friends. A Funeral Mass will be held at St.Clement of Rome Parish Church, 535 Fairfield Ave., Stamford, CT on Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2014 at 10:00 AM, followed by burial. For those not able to attend the Funeral Mass on Tuesday, a celebration of her life will be held this coming summer at Todd's Point, the date of which is to be determined.
