I am so sorry for your loss. Deepest sympathies are extended to your family.

Eleanore was a kind and friendly person. Being friends with Debbie and Cindy I remember your Mom always being jolly. Mickey always said she was a good looking lady, her hair was always done and had her makeup on. I didn't see her for many years until recently when I found out she was across the hall from my uncle at Guardian Elder Care. I went in to see her and she said Sharon how are you. She remembered me. We had such a nice talk. I visited her often after that day and also took my grandaughter in to see her and she enjoyed her visit. Eleanore will be missed by all.

Cioci Eleanore was needed more in Heaven with her brothers and sisters. Her work was completed and she will be missed. I hold so many memories of your mother. Know that she was loved and will always be remembered. I'll never forget how she, my mother and grandmother saved my life at Moon-lake-yelling at the lifeguard(I went to far out), going to Sans Souci -swimming and riding the rides and the festivals eating elephant ears, cotton candy, pierogies and kielbasa! Miles kept us apart through the years-but Cioci Eleanore will remain embedded in my heart forever more. Love always, Great Niece Denise

My cousins John, Brent, Debbie, Robert and Cindy: Coci Eleanore was a special part of my life and she will forever be in my heart , with love. I'm so thankful to have been able to visit with her the week before she passed. She was smiling, alert, and laughing at BOB's jokes...as usual. I instinctively turned back around again as we were leaving the room, just to give her another hug , kiss, and tell her I love her. She NEVER complained! And...you all are what gave her purpose, she loved you and was very proud. I'm sad for your loss of her. With much love, ~cousin Pat and BOB~
