Celebrating the life of Eleanor "Ellie" Peake
Thank you for signing Eleanor "Ellie" Peake's Guestbook
Dear Uncle Ken, Tommy, Jay & Richie,
We send our love to all of you! I will always remember by dear Aunt Eleanor with love! She was kind, caring and very talented with her crafting. I especially love the aprons that she made for me. It was always so nice to talk to Aunt Eleanor since it was like talking to my mom. In our last conversation, she told me that the end was near and she promised to give my Mom a big hug for me. I know that they are together now and that brings me great comfort. The morning of June 8th I was at the Borgata in AC for a little get away, when you called with the news of her passing. After I hung up the telephone, I listened to two songs “Serenaded by Angels” and “May the Choirs of Angels Come to Greet You”. I know that the Angels came to greet her along with my Mom and all of her loved ones in Heaven. I also knew that Aunt Eleanor and my Mom would bring me a little Luck of the Irish that morning and they did! They loved their casino trips so in their honor I will just have to keep up the tradition. God Bless all who knew and loved my dear Aunt Eleanor! I miss her already!
Love, Kim xoxo

My mom was only 5ft tall but she was Camden tough. She was there for me and my brothers whenever we needed her. She was a devoted wife. She was creative and loving and had a pretty good singing voice...especially Holy Night on Christmas eve:)
She went through many different hair looks but my brothers and I really liked the Ross Grimsley hair she once sported....
She loved her brother Eddie and her sisters Bertha and Margie. They were very close and supportive.
She loved her grandkids and her grandkids loved her.
She will be missed by all especially my dad....he was there every step of the way.
We love you ma!
