Eleanor was born in New Britain, graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School and New Britain General Hospital School of Nursing. She was a caring nurse and worked labor and delivery for twenty six years at New Britain General Hospital. Many families were touched by her compassion.

With her dear friend Frank Bianco, Ellie enjoyed preparing food for the Lenten Lunch program and attending other St. Paul's activities. She enjoyed surprising her grandkids and their friends with welcoming and thoughtful gifts, but most of all she loved spending time with her grandchildren and watching them grow. Ellie is survived by her devoted daughter Laurie Salerno Skinner of Berlin and her son in law Brian Skinner. She was a loving and adored Grandma Ellie to Ashley, Jake and Katie Skinner. Ellie will be missed by her former husband Roland Salerno, her nephews Daniel Pilewski and Jaime Salerno with his wife Jen Salerno and children Anthony and Ariana, her dear friend Frank Bianco and many other special family and friends that were dear to Ellie.
