Eleanor A. Wallace
Eleanor Anne Luciano Wallace, 95, a long time resident of West Haven, passed away at Shady Knoll of Seymour on August 24, 2021. Eleanor was born on June 22, 1926, and raised on Greenwich Ave in New Haven . Both her parents Gerry and Jenny Rose Luciano immigrated from Naples and she was very proud of her Italian heritage. She worked at Miles in West Haven for many years before retiring. Ellie enjoyed in her golden years at the West Haven Senior Center playing cards, dancing, and chatting with her many friends. She was an avid reader who loved to complete the crossword puzzle in the newspaper every day, and was a lifelong lover of the arts and travel. Ellie felt at home by the water, spending many evenings at the West Haven boardwalk with her friends.
Eleanor is the beloved mother of Michael Ames of West Haven, and the late Toni Ames, Donna Marie, and Ralph Wallace. She is also survived by her grandchildren Jamie, Danielle, and Alexa Benner, Michael and Jenny Ames, as well as her great-grandchildren Mason and Calla Benner. Ellie was predeceased by her sister, Mary DeNigris of Hamden, and her brother, Ralph Luciano, of California.
