Quigley, Eleanor BALLSTON LAKE Eleanor Quigley, 82, of Ballston Lake, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, at Ellis Hospital. Born in Schenectady on January 29, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Prosper Morrissette and Yvonne (Moriarty) Morrissette. Eleanor received her bachelor's degree from the University of Vermont and her master's in teaching from SUNY Oneonta. Upon her graduation, Eleanor went on to have a distinguished 30-year elementary school teaching career at Shenendehowa Central School District. Eleanor was as creative a person as you could imagine. She embraced new technology such as her beloved Kindle, was an accomplished seamstress and crochetier and excelled at bridge. Every one of her children's households has at least one cherished item that Eleanor hand made for them. Upon her retirement, she could be found with her husband attending a game, recital, birthday party, spelling bee, first communion or any number of activities of her 12 grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Eleanor was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Paul J. Quigley; as well as her brother, Daniel Morrissette; and daughter, Kathleen Yvonne Quigley. Survivors include her loving children, Paul (Tina) Quigley, Betsy (Brian) Pacelli, Carolyn (Dan) Cafarelli, Kelly (Roger) Murray; and 12 grandchildren. Additionally, Eleanor is survived by her two nieces, Michelle (Bill) McCarthy and Danielle (Ron) Charron; and sister in-law, Patricia Morrissette. Lastly, Eleanor's family would like to express its deepest gratitude to the nursing staff in the Intensive Care Unit at Ellis Hospital. Their compassion, sensitivity and professionalism helped us get through a very difficult time. Relatives and friends are invited and may call on Friday, September 15, from 9-10 a.m. at St. Edward the Confessor Church, 569 Clifton Park Center Road. A Mass of Christian Burial will immediately follow the wake at 10 a.m. Burial will follow the Mass in Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery, Niskayuna. In lieu, of flowers, contributions may be made in Eleanor's name to an organization of your choice. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Gordon C. Emerick Funeral Home.
