Eleanor D Gaudreau (Griffin)


Florence, MA - Eleanor D. Gaudreau (Griffin), age 94, passed away on May 16, 2019, in Northampton, Mass., surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Haverhill, Mass. on January 10, 1925, to the late William and Irene Griffin. After serving in the Navy during WW2, she married Bernard Gaudreau.

Their home was a place of fun and laughter and many wonderful memories. Ellie was always known for her wit and sense of humor and often surprised and delighted people around her, even near the end of her life.
She was the beloved mother of Cheryl Malmborg and husband Ed of Florence, Mass.; Tom Gaudreau of Florence; and Pam Jameson and husband Mike of Scottsdale, Ariz. She leaves behind her adoring grandchildren Laura and Lee Gaudreau; Alex Malmborg and Katy Smith; and Shannon and Haley Jameson.

Cheryl, Tom and Pam. My deepest sympathy. I'll always remember the good times with your parents when we were kids. Your mom was wonderful to us.
