Obituary- Eleanore Paris
Born November 5 th , 1934 - Died March 21 st , 2024 at NYU Langone Hospital (Winthrop), Mineola, from complications after a fall. She broke her femur, had surgery but developed pneumonia. Her breathing was compromised, and she passed with her family in attendance. Eleanore grew up in College Point NY with her parents, Herman and Frances, her sister Dorothy, her grandmother Gertrude, her Aunt Rose and cousin Ted. She attended St. Fidelis elementary school, where she met her very best friend of 82 years, Marilyn. They also attended St Agnes High School together and remain more like sisters than friends. Married in 1955 to Donald Paris, they moved to Williston Park in 1959. She had 4 children: Denise, Daniel, Andrew and Allison. She spent most of her married life raising her children with love, guidance and strength. When the children were old enough, she went back to work, and later to school. She obtained a degree in Art and her Masters’ Degree in Education from SUNY Old Westbury and Adelphi University. She was a wonderful artist, using watercolor as her medium. She won many awards and had her artwork displayed in businesses around town. She also taught art from her at-home studio. Later she taught an Adult education class.  Changing course later in life, she got a job with NY State as an insurance and workers compensation inspector. She retired after many years of work and spent many happy hours with her grandchildren: Ashley, Sean, AJ, Ashley, and Anastasia. She loved teaching them art and how to bake for the holidays. Just having them around made her so happy. They would play games, go on outings and go to the library together. She loved them so much. She also loved spending time with her friends and belonged to a number of senior citizens groups. She went on trips, had parties and made many good friends. She also was a Friend
of the Williston Park Library and belonged to the Rosary Altar Society at St Aidan’s. Eleanore was a woman of faith. She said the Rosary daily, attended mass whenever she could and prayed for her family and friends constantly. She was a founding member of the National Society of Autistic Children. She also donated to many Christian and humanitarian causes monthly. Eleanore will be sorely missed by her friends and family. Her love and patience guided the lives of her children as they learned to grow into people she could be proud of. She will always be held dearly in our hearts.
