Elinor E. Miller, nee Elisberg, age 102 and in her words "going on 103" passed peacefully in her own home surrounded by family. Beloved wife of the late Herman. Loving mother of Michael Miller, Janice (Bruce) Goldman and the late Richard Miller. Doting grandmother of Marissa (Dan) Holtzleiter, Breanne Goldman, and Dr. Kara Goldman (Hartley Nisenbaum). Cherished great grandmother of Daniel, Lilah, Aviva and Hazel, and special dog Rosie. Adored daughter of the late Max and Dora Elisberg and sister of the late Marcia Ovson. Fond sister-in-law of Muriel Miller and special aunt of David (the late Diane) Miller and many loving nieces and nephews. Will be dearly missed by neighbors who embraced her like family, the North Shore Senior Center community, and all who have had the privilege to know her. Elinor graduated from Northwestern University in 1938 with a degree in Biology. She was progressive, a curious learner and life-long teacher, and enthusiast of science and nature. A confidante to many, Elinor lived her life with warmth, wisdom, humor, optimism and grace. Service Tuesday, 10 AM at North Shore Congregation Israel, 1185 North Sheridan Road, Glencoe, IL 60022. Interment Westlawn. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in her memory to North Shore Congregation Israel, WTTW, 5400 N. St. Louis Ave., Chicago, Il 60625 or Thresholds North Shore, Attn.
