Eleanore Anne (Lindelof) Magnoli, 73, of Plainville, formerly of Bristol, passed away peacefully, following a brief illness, on Monday, May 2, 2022.
Born in New Britain on September 4, 1948, she was one of three daughters to the late Carl Lindelof and Eleanor (Schardl) Lindelof. Raised and educated in Plainville, Eleanore had a longtime career working for area grocery businesses, spending many years with Big Y in Plainville. She retired in 2017 from Bristol Hospital after more than 15 years of hard work and dedication to a job that she loved and where she made many dear friends. A sports enthusiast, she cheered passionately for the Yankees, Celtics and UConn women’s basketball, and enjoyed watching football and tennis. Eleanore was family oriented and loved life’s simple pleasures, including puzzles of all kinds, a good laugh, a competitive board game, listening to music from her vinyl record collection, Sunday dinners with her sisters and a good cup of coffee. Always ready for a road trip, she especially enjoyed visits to the Maine shoreline and Myrtle Beach, and traveling to family gatherings. A devoted grandmother, mother and sister, she will be remembered fondly for her unwavering love for her family and will be missed dearly, leaving many cherished memories.
She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, David and Heather Magnoli of Canton and Anthony Magnoli and Michelle Carr of South Windsor; her grandchildren with whom she shared a special bond, Brionna, Christian, Ethan, Amelia, and Lillian; her sisters, Karen Rohrbach and Carla Bergman; along with many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
A celebration of Eleanore’s life will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. at Plainville Funeral Home, 81 Broad St, Plainville. Family and friends may gather prior to the service, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Memorial contributions in Eleanore’s honor may be made to the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org/involved/donate
