With sadness in our hearts, the family Elenore J. Fetterolf announces her passing on September 16, 2017, following a brief illness. Elenore, born on September 10, 1936, in Troxelville, Pennsylvania, had just achieved her 81st year, a feat of which she expressed incredulity on many occasions. Elenore received her nursing degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1958. Following graduation, she worked as a registered nurse and, always game for adventure, travelled the world. Elenore, known as "Ellie" to her family and friends and as "Grellie" to her grandchildren, will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by her daughters, Amy Oalican and Carrie Jelaso, her son-in-law, Eric Oalican, her grandchildren, Nathan and Isabel Oalican, and her numerous cousins and extended family who reside in Central Pennsylvania and Taunton, Massachusetts.
Respecting Elenore's wishes, no service will be held. Instead, her family will throw her a proper celebration in Boston and Pennsylvania. A rollicking party is something she would have never missed. Donations in memory of Ellie may be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance.
