My heartfelt thanks to everyone who celebrated the life of my sweet Aunt Eleanor.  My bowling buddy, my swimming partner, my whiffle ball teammate, my inspiration, my hero. She twice battled cancer, never once complaining, and fought bravely to the bitter end.  Her fortitude came as no surprise as she overcame many challenges throughout her life.  A lover of…

My sweet sister Ellie has passed after a courageous battle with cancer. She was more than just my baby sister, she was my hero, my teacher, my friend. She made me laugh every single day even when she wasn't feeling well. She taught me more about humanity than anyone I know. Ellie wasn't always a saint. She could easily change her mood or use a bad word(after all she was a Pfeffer) but just as easily endear you back with her infectious laugh and beautiful smile. Although my heart is aching, I made a promise to El to try be happy everyday, cherishing her memory and honoring her life because I know she would not want me to be sad. I would like to thank all our neighbors, family and friends and all Ellie's extended pals for your outpouring of love and support. We couldn't have done this without you. Your generosity of spirit and goodwill is truly amazing and I know Ellie felt it all! Till we meet again El, I love you always Sis, ❤Joanne P.s. say hi to Mom and Dad and the gang up there!

Ellie was the “Mayor of Surrey Lane”. She brought joy and love to everyone she met. She had an amazing memory and often reminded us of our old neighbors and friends. She loved music-was always singing and dancing and could name an old rock ‘n roll tune and the band in a few notes. She could spend hours coloring beautifully and would always enjoy a bowling outing. Somewhere along the way she became obsessed with Judge Judy and at times would pass judgment on her siblings.She was the beloved daughter of the late Jo & Hank Pfeffer, the loving sister and sister-in -law of Frank (Jean), Jim (Chi-Chi), Jo ( Steve), Cathy ( Tony), Tommy ( Barbara), Michael (Stacey) and Margaret. She was the favorite Aunt of Justin, Michael, Lauren, Liz, Kate, Tommy James, Jade, Luke, Jessica, Megan,Jake, Danielle and Madison. And she was loved by som many other relatives and friends.She brought joy and love to all and will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
