Our family lost its spark May 10, 2017 when our amazing Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother peacefully went to be with the Lord. She embodied spirit and spunk until the end. Eleanor was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, the youngest of eight children to Rocco and Frances Genovese. She married the love of her life Fred, in 1939. They were together until his passing in 1991. Now they are dancing together again! In 1953 they moved to San Jose becoming part of the community and making longtime friends.

Eleanor was known for her spontaneous dinner parties and enjoyed giving gifts to everyone. She had a talent to bond with people and a passion for living life with laughter. She was always on the go either shopping, helping others, volunteering, or her favorite, partying and playing cards. She enjoyed her many travels to ltaly visiting cousins and speaking ltalian.

Eleanor is survived by her 6 children: Santina (Dan) Blunenfeld, Frances (Charles) Scorpiniti, Linda (Michael) DeRose, Deborah (George) Mettee, Michael Comandatore and Laurie (Jay) Pauer. She also leaves 9 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Eleanor's daily prayers and faith helped make her a loving and compassionate person. Her spark will always shine in our hearts.
