Eleanor Marie Neumaier Obituary
April 21, 1935 - January 31, 2017 Ellie passed away January 31, 2017 in Santa Monica, California after a long illness, surrounded by her beloved son George Colby Allerton, and caregiver Jean English. She is also survived by her beloved brother George J. Neumaier, daughter-in-law Nina Tourigny Allerton, and beloved grandson Zachary 'Zac' Allerton; her nephew Matthew Neumaier and niece Andrea (Neumaier) Moran. She cherished her friends as well as family, including the still extant Neumaiers in Erding, Germany. Ellie was predeceased by her parents Elizabeth & George Neumaier. Always a New Yorker, Ellie was born in New York, New York in 1935; raised in part in Weehawken, New Jersey, and attended Union Hill High School in Union City, New Jersey. She started working in the city with lifelong friend Joan Dyer. She put herself through and graduated with a B.A. from Columbia University. Ellie flew as a jet-setting international stewardess for Flying Tigers, TWA and United Airlines. She was stationed as far afield as Dublin, Ireland and Tel Aviv, Israel. Ellie was briefly married to George Milton Allerton IV in New York, which granted Ellie her first & only child, Colby in 1968. After becoming single, Ellie moved to Los Angeles in 1971, married Ron Simon and enjoyed being a loving mother and social personality. Many who knew her would remark how her smile could light up a room. She had a golden chapter with the third husband in her life, the retired pediatrician Gene Feldman, whom she eventually married in 2007. They traveled extensively to Fiji, India, Africa and other places, and loved classical music symphonies and the San Jose Sharks equally. Neva Dyer had introduced them. Ellie's love of life and spirit kept her in this world she so enjoyed and to the benefit of so many. Many will miss her dearly, and will keep a part of Ellie's warmth and kindness in their hearts.
