Eleanor Elizabeth Weiss, 97, of Lake Ariel, PA passed away early Sunday morning, at home surrounded by her family. She was the widow of Edward A. Weiss, who passed away in 1993. The couple had been married for nearly 50 years.

Born in 1923 in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late John and Anna (née Andrejauskas) Romanauskas. Upon her marriage to Edward, Eleanor moved to Lake Ariel and embraced farm life. A woman of deep faith, Eleanor was a devoted member of the St. Thomas More Parish community. She taught CCD and Sacramental classes and was very active with the Altar and Rosary Society, for which she served as Secretary for many years. She was also active at the Hamlin Senior Center from its opening, where she volunteered and played bingo.

Eleanor was a wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother. Her family, from her children to her great-great-grandchildren, kept her young and smiling. She was famous for her homemade bread, cinnamon rolls, currant jelly, apple pie, and blueberry cobbler, as well as many other delicious treats. She hand-decorated Easter eggs and braided Palms. She generously donated her crocheted hats and afghans with love. She loved chocolate ice cream and playing Rummikub. Eleanor truly never said a bad word about anyone or anything.

The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of the AseraCare and Allied Services Hospices for the dedicated and compassionate care they provided Eleanor.

Surviving are daughters Carol Sowinski and husband Leonard, Christine Reed and husband Ray; son LtCol (Ret) USAF Edward Weiss and wife Robin; sister Rita “Ruthie” Warner; grandchildren Michelle Mattern and husband Brian, Barbara Reed and husband Jason Gart, Richard Reed and wife Sara, Jennifer Weiss, and 2Lt USAF Andrew Weiss and wife Kathryn Gorab; great-grandchildren Ryan Mattern and wife Lala, Keith Mattern and wife Molly, Adam Mattern and fiancée Michelle Siracuse, Allison Mattern, and Lindsey and Richie Reed; great-great-grandchildren Eleanor “Nora” Grace and Isaac Mattern; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was also preceded in death by her son Thomas and eight siblings.
