Our beloved Eleanore Browne, 87, died surrounded by her family on Oct. 16th at home in Port St. Lucie. She is survived by her loving husband, Eugene, with whom she celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary this summer. She was the mother, friend and confidant to her six children, Valerie, Pamela, Karen, Deborah, Eugene and Kevin, and the matriarch of a family that has grown to over twenty grand- and great-grandchildren.
Eleanore lost her father, Carlos Clive, at a young age and was raised in New York City by her mother Daisy Clive. She graduated from Fordham School of Nursing and went on to touch the lives of countless individuals throughout her career at Fordham Hospital and Deepdale Hospital.
Eleanore and Eugene raised their children on Long Island where they instilled in them the same core values that they practiced every day: respect, love and kindness. Family vacations included packing up the station wagon to go skiing and trips to the beach.
In retirement, they moved to Port St. Lucie, Florida where they quickly became part of the community, joining bowling leagues, book clubs and of course, a New Yorker at heart, attending spring training to cheer on the New York Mets.
Even with an extended family that spans across the country, Eleanore was steadfast in keeping everyone close. Whether sharing news about the latest addition to the family or keeping tabs on how everyone’s NFL team was doing, you could count on her to bring tidings from near and far.
Her laughter, grace and guidance will be missed dearly.
