My husband and I met Eleanor in church. We use to go to the 5pm mass. She was such a wonderful and pleasant person. My husband and I moved to Florida three years ago and I always kept in touch with her. When I saw her obituary in the Advance I felt so bad. She always spoke so highly about her daughter and son and especially her grandchildren and great children. I know she will be greatly missed. To her family, please accept our condolences.

My deepest sympathies to her family. She was a wonderful neighbor. Whenever I would pass her house walking my dog, she would be sitting on her porch praying her rosary. We would chitchat about her beautiful family and I could tell she was so proud of all her grandchild. We are really going to miss her. She was a very sweet and pleasant person to talk to.
