Eleanor was born and raised in Philadelphia, mostly in foster care. She graduated 12th grade from Simon Gratz High School in Philadelphia. She overcame any obstacles that came her way and while doing so, never giving up that hope and dream of being a part of a loving family. She definitely achieved this goal! She was also known as “Granny Bird” to most family and friends. She was a loving and caring person who always had a smile on her face to greet anyone and everyone she came in contact with. She enjoyed life to its fullest, especially with the love of her life, Joe. They made friends wherever they went and never turned down a great party, a good dance, nor a shot of whiskey!
She retired from Acme after 28 years of employment; and, Hammonton Board of Education, after 11 years. She was a volunteer at the Hammonton Canoe Club, a former member of the Red Hats, and also previously served as a Volunteer at Kessler Memorial Hospital. She leaves behind a great legacy we all hope to achieve in our lifetime!
