Eleonora Kowal, 90, died peacefully at her home on March 7, 2017.
Born in Poland on April 10th, 1926 – she emigrated to the United States in 1960 and went on to raise her four children in Port Chester, where she was a resident for 57 years. Eleonora (known to most as Babcia), spent her life traveling the world, dancing, singing, and cooking her grandchildren’s favorite Polish dish – pierogi.
Swimming was another one of her passions, as she frequented the beach daily, even in the winter. Eleonora was a generous and loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who enjoyed spending time with her family.
Eleonora was pre-deceased by her sons Andrew and Walter, and is survived by her daughter Halina Pugliese and her husband Steven, as well her youngest daughter Jen Kowal. She is also survived by her grandchildren – Michael Kowal, his wife Genevieve, and their daughter Lilly; Chrissy Anik, her husband Jon, and their daughters Riley and Tatum; Lisa Migliardi and her husband Matt; Danielle Murphy and her husband John; as well as Stephanie O’Donnell and her husband Casey.
A Catholic mass is scheduled on Friday at 11:30 am, at Our Lady of Mercy in Port Chester, New York.
