Eleanore Mae Reilly

September 7, 1938 — February 27, 2023


Eleanore Mae Reilly,


Beloved wife for 64 years to Ken Reilly, who passed away January 28, 2023.  

Loving mother of 5 children; Susan (Tom) Niemiera, Cathy (Bill) Madura, Jeff (Gail) Reilly, Michelle (Bob) Holesha and Doug Reilly.

Adored grandmother to Tom, Lauren, Zak, Julia, Sean, Adam, Ethan, and Annie and Great Grandmother to Aiden & Shelby.


Eleanore had an infectious laugh, could keep up on the dance floor with her beloved Ken which was not an easy task for anyone, and could be a force of nature when you’d least expect it.  The latter part of her life was, unfortunately, filled with some major health issues for both Ken and herself. Ken’s long battle with Alzheimer’s and her own issue with kidney failure and dialysis.  She was known at Davita Kidney Care as “Jazzy.” She was one of the few patient’s to get all dressed up three times a week for her long sessions and would always arrive in her shiny Cadillac.


Eleanore will be terribly missed but her family knows that Eleanore and Ken are together again which brings them comfort during this sad time.
