  1. We will cherish the memories we have of Eleanor. She was such a warm, kind and loving friend. Our daughters have a special bond because of Eleanor. May you rest in peace. Nikki Ann and Jay

  2. Salarnardi family:. My condolences to all of you at this difficult time. Eleanor was a very sweet caring and funny lady. I could never say her name when I was little. She and her husband and my family would meet in Staten Island at another friends beach house. When my parents had family parties they were always at the back yard gatherings. Julie was small at the time. It was a great time of togetherness, laughter and fun. So many memories of years gone by. We will remember the good ole days with no cell phones and recall those happy times. Rest In Heavenly Peace. You sorely will be missed by many who loved and cared about you.

  3. Dear Phil
    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your dear mom. She was so special to all of us in the Class of ‘75.

  4. Aunt Eleanor was always fun to be with on our visit to Hoboken from South Carolina. I remember as a young teenager visiting with her and enjoying the stories of our family. She and uncle Phil always reached out to us when we visited Hoboken. My prayers are with uncle Phil, Phillip and Julie families as they work thru Eleanor passing. I have very fond memories of our times together and I’m sure the family will have a wonderful though sad celebrating her life and visiting with all her family and friends.

  5. Julie, I am heartbroken to hear of your moms passing. Her and your dad were two of my favorite customers.
    Please send our love to your dad. May she rest in peace.
