To the family: I am so sorry to hear about Eleanor's passing. She and Peter were a marvelous couple and were always interested in my art career and my 2 sons' medical careers. Her love of animals, as I am, when we spoke, was always uplifting. My husband Edwin Aronson was her first cousin. She will be truly missed....Adele Soll Aronson

I was sorry to hear of Ellie's passing--she and Peter were important members of our condo community. I remember the day we took Lily and my granddaughter Kayla to the Museum of Science and Industry. I am not able to attend shiva but will make a contribution to Mikva Challenge in Ellie's memory.
