Eleanor Podolski died of COVID-19 on December 26, 2020 at the age of 90.
Ellie was known for her contagious laugh, bubbly personality, and love of learning and new experiences. She and her husband Stanley raised two sons and a daughter, and she also helped run the family store (Podolski’s Market). Ellie was a member of Polish Falcons Nest 45, where she was a Legion of Honor Bronze and Silver Star of Merit recipient and also a member of the Polish American Cultural Society. In her later years, she lovingly cared for her husband of 67 years as he suffered from dementia until his death in 2017.
Ellie is missed by her surviving son and daughter, grandchildren, extended family, and circle of friends. In her obituary her family wrote, “Please say a prayer for Eleanor and please get vaccinated.”
