Eleanor Frances Wisniewski

Eleanor Frances Wisniewski, age 86, of Norristown, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 25, 2019.  


She was born in Philadelphia, PA on June 29, 1932, a daughter of the late Anthony and Frances (Jendzurski) Zawicki.

Eleanor was born and raised in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia and lived most of her life in Norristown, where she was a member of St. Paul's RC Church.  Prior to retiring, in 1996, she worked as a receptionist for Montgomery Family Practice where she enjoyed her daily interactions with the doctors and patients.  Eleanor loved tending to her flower beds, and enjoyed it when neighbors and people out for walks complimented her on their beauty and profuse colors.  She was a huge fan of home shopping channels, especially the gardening and cooking segments.  She loved her family, and was especially close to her son, Ken who was a tremendous help to her in the last couple of years.

She was the beloved wife of the late Francis A. Wisniewski.
