Eleanore Ciuba

Galloway - On Thursday, August 15th, Eleanore Ciuba, loving mother and grandmother, passed away suddenly at the age of 88, on the Feast of the Assumption of Mary.

Eleanore was born on November 6, 1930 in Perth Amboy, NJ to Paul and Helen (Pyonteck) Rybnicky. She lived most of her life in Elizabeth until moving to Smithville, Galloway Township, NJ in 1994.

Eleanore was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 42 years, Victor (retired Elizabeth police officer) and her daughter Elaine Barry. She is survived by her daughter, Debra, granddaughter, Victoria Barry, and Debra's fiancé David Cowles.

Eleanore was recognized for her inexorable caring and giving nature. She devoted her life to the happiness and success of her daughters and granddaughter. She enjoyed travelling with her family by land, air, and sea with a special fondness for Poland. As a nurse, she touched the lives and hearts of her patients and their families for over 30 years. She was also a faithful Roman Catholic and member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Galloway.

Eleanore will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and all who knew her including her rescued racing greyhound Johnny, Persian cat Ramona, and Victoria's dog Benny. In lieu of flowers, please honor her memory by donating to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center 575 Woodland Ave, Madison, NJ 07940, 973-377-7094.

Aunt Eleanore is being remembered in my prayers, along with Uncle Victor and all the relatives who have passed from this world before us.
My sympathy goes out to her daughter and grandaughter. We know what it means to lose a mother and grandmother. They are irreplaceable. May our memories keep them alive on earth, and may our prayers escort them to heaven!

Mrs. Ciuba was always a 2nd Mother to me. I've known Mrs C. Since I am age 2, when she moved in across the street from me on Rosewood...
Debbie & I began to get close from the day they moved in. I know the Ciuba's over 55 Years ... That is a Lifetime of Love & Friendship, that will last forever.... Mrs.C.. & her husband Victor always took Debbie & I on all kinds of vacations . Virginia Beach was the Best .. I can go on & on continue to write but I will keep it Short...
