Eleanore Pauline Pietrangelo, age 88 of Roseville, died Sunday, January 22, 2017 at McLaren Macomb Hospital in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. She was born December 11, 1928 in Detroit, daughter of the late Aloysius and the late Anna (nee: Temrowski) Lamparski.
Eleanore's career was centered in the field of education where the impact she made was highly regarded and esteemed. Having obtained the necessary credentials as a Para Professional, much of her focus was working with the special needs children and helping to make a difference in their lives. It called for a lot of hard work, dedicated care and understanding, yet Eleanore made it look easy. She influenced the lives of many throughout the years of her employment.
When Eleanore wasn't working or caring for the needs of home and hearth, she will be remembered for the pastimes she enjoyed both in and out of the home. If she said indoors, quite often you would have found her curled up with a good book. Being a school professional and an avid reader, it simply made perfect sense that expanding her mind or just looking for a little entertainment came through the written word. Another pastime that brought enjoyment, as well as natural therapy for her hands, was found in her skills with knitting. Possessing a bit of artistry mixed with creativity, Eleanore managed to turn her talents into beautiful works of art, and useful pieces as well. Then there were her soap operas which kept Eleanore well-entertainment over the years. With all the seriousness and attention to care in her career field, following the story lines and romances of the soaps provided her the ideal escape from demands on the job.
As for some of her favorite things to do outside of the house, Federal's Department Store provided Eleanore the perfect venue to exercise her mad shopping skills and a way to scope out some of the fantastic deals she discovered over the years. She loved to shop and held sincere loyalty to the, once, familiar department store legend. She also spent many-an-afternoon soaking up the tasty pleasures offered by the folks at Sander's Ice Cream Parlor. When it came to a little "comfort food," nobody could please the palate like Sander's,…and Eleanore truly loved patronizing the iconic eatery.
Many will also recall Eleanore's fascination and passion for Lighthouses, of which Michigan offered her a plethora of renowned towers & beacons to add to her portfolio of places visited. Lighthouses speckle the coasts of the Mitten State and Eleanore knew where every one of them was located. And there was never a more pleasing and sought after location than Mackinac Island,…for both the lighthouses, and the unique charm of the island as well. She loved to travel, especially when the car was pointed in a northerly destination.
Eleanore had the heart of a saint and a giving spirit that was derived from her devout faith and her devotion to the church, Our Mother of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. A longtime member and parishioner, Eleanore truly lived out her beliefs and did her best to fulfill God's Great Commission by sharing her faith with others.
Yet of all that Eleanore was passionate about, nothing could come close to the matchless love she held for her family. Spending time in their company, and creating the storehouse of wonderful memories they made together, was always the cherry on the sundae in Eleanore's life,…a life filled with a loving legacy of those she leaves behind. And of all the moments that meant the most to Eleanore, those shared at Christmas time were some of the most precious to her. With all of its regalia and sentiment, Christmas offered so many opportunities that no other time of year provided,…and she poured the best of her tender-loving-care into making it special for them all.
A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Eleanore touched a multitude of hearts and souls throughout her life's journey, and impacted countless lives with her knowledge and skills. Her work will live on through the generations, and the love she shared will be a warm remembrance with each reflection embraced. She will be missed immensely and loved eternally.
Eleanore was the beloved wife of the late Thomas. Dear mother of Carol Lynn (James) Osendorf, Larry Pietrangelo, Geralene Pietrangelo, and Patricia (Christopher) Zuelling. Loving grandmother of Jennifer, Megan, Jason, and Ashleigh. Great grandmother of Kasia, Alex, Landon, Tyler, and Chase.
Visitation for Eleanore will be held Sunday, January 29th from 3-9 pm with a Rosary service at 7:00 pm at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Rd. at Common (12 ½ Mile Rd.) in Warren.
Eleanore will lie in state Monday 9:30 a.m. until the time of her Funeral Mass at 10:00 a.m. at St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church in St. Clair Shores.
