ANDERSON Eleanor, age 66, of Wyckoff, went to Heaven on Sunday, October 24, 2010, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Boston, she lived in Massachusetts for 28 years before moving to Wyckoff in 1972. Eleanor was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother (Nani). She loved spending time with her family and friends, especially at their summer home in Cape Cod. She took up the game of golf to give her husband company "in his old age", but truly enjoyed traveling and just being with him. Eleanor was an active parishioner and Eucharistic minister at St. Elizabeth's R.C. Church in Wyckoff. Eleanor was best known for being a wonderful homemaker who prioritized her husband and children. Although devoted to family, she demonstrated a sincere interest and concern in other people's lives. Ellie, as she was known to her sons' wives and golfing friends, was a genuinely happy person who was always singing or humming. She had a contagious smile and laugh which made everyone who knew her feel welcomed and loved. Her sparkling Irish eyes along with her selfless heart revealed her true beauty inside and out. Eleanor is survived by her husband, Jon, of 45 years with whom she shared a true love story; her daughter Susan and her husband James of Morris Plains; and her three sons: Michael of Chatham, Gregory and his wife Allison of Wyckoff, and Brian and his wife Lise of Chatham. She will always be an angel for her nine grandchildren: Cara, Michael, Ella, Ava, Grace, Colin, Anders, Emma, Lila, with the 10th due in December. Eleanor is also survived by her brother Alfred and his wife Jo Marie of Duxbury, MA.
