  1. To my beautiful Aunt Eleanor. Your beauty inside and out brightened up the whole room wherever we were. Your ability to listen and give advice and our long phone calls have been missed and you will always remain in my heart. I guess when my mom, your sister-in-law Rita died, she started calling everyone home because it’s soooo beautiful and unexplainably peaceful and love is everywhere! No more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears. I know your young again and surrounded by all your loved ones including your son and very missed Steven. Give him a kiss and a smile and a hug from me. Until we meet again. Love you!!!

  2. Dear Aunt Eleanor, you were always a special part of our family…..sweet and beautiful. I’m thinking now of all the times our families spent together, our phone conversations, our giggles. Rest peacefully now with your loved ones who have gone before you. Give my little cuz, Steve a special hug and kiss from me. You will be missed by many. Love you.

  3. Dear Aunt Eleanor, May you rest in eternal peace with all of our loved ones. There were so many times I thought of you and your personality and endless smile. I loved our visits when we were all younger, with my mom and with my Auntie Lee. I am so saddened to hear of your passing. I have a picture of you in my home, and just yesterday before I even knew you were gone, my son was asking about it. Thank you for coming through on your journey to a happier healthier eternal life. May all of our faith let you rest in your afterlife. Hug our MiMi for me. Love & Kisses, Cousin Patricia & My Mom Maria 😘

  4. Aunt El was a true lady. A lovely, kind and sweet woman who always looked elegant and lit up a room with her smile, and her laugh. We all loved her and will always miss her.
    Love, Cousin Lee and Lisa

  5. Rest in peace my beautiful Aunt. I know you had a joyful reunion with your Steven, who welcomed you to Heaven with open arms.
    We think of you and talk about you often and my Mom loves to share memories and pictures of the younger days with you. You were a very special part of her life, and mine. I loved seeing you, and spending time with you whenever I could. You were definatley one of my favorite people in the whole world and you’ll never be forgotten.
    Love you, Lisa DeNicola Keller.

  6. My beloved cousin, my partner in crime, one thing I will always remember is the day you were moving to Bayside and we were packing up your things. We packed so much and when we looked around, the only thing left was the grand old pool table! The new owners didnt want any part of it so it was up to us to somehow get rid of it. We stared at it awhile until I said “El, do you happen to have an axe?” And you replied “Yes i think I do but what are you gonna do with it?” I said “Simple, stand back and watch” I picked up the axe and proceeded to smash it to pieces while you laughed. We were both hysterical to tears! It took hours and piece by piece we dragged it out to the curb. We laughed about that for years. One of the highlights of our lives. We had so much fun in our days, and I have so many wonderful memories, like going to department stores and trying on clothes we had no intention of buying. Years ago we went to the beach with my daughter Lisa, and you brought 3 huge pies, one for each! And we held hands in the water while Lisa told everyone we just got married. Several people congratulated us! I remember how we laughed danced around at the waters edge. You were always a wonderful companion, cousin and friend, and I loved you so very much. Rest in peace El, we will all be together one day. Love Always,Lee
