Eleanore C. Pulice

d. September 12, 2020

Eleanore (Costello) Pulice, former resident of Philadelphia (Roxborough) and Flourtown, PA, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the Lutheran Home in Telford, PA, on Saturday, September 12, 2020. She was 83 years old. Eleanore was born on September 27, 1936, in Philadelphia, PA, to George F. and Violet (Borowski) Costello. She graduated from Roxborough High School in 1953, attended business courses at night, and notably became the executive secretary to the president of Girard Bank in the 1960s. While working at Girard Bank, she met her love and future husband, Louis. Eleanore and Lou married on February 12, 1966, and together they raised their three children, Carol-Anne, Robert, and Lorrie, in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia. They celebrated 43 years of married life. Eleanore’s greatest joy was as a wife, mother, and homemaker. In the 1980s, Eleanore started her own business, the Roxborough Typing Service, which she successfully ran for over 25 years, before retiring. Eleanore had a passion for reading and writing. She also loved animals, especially cats. She had many memorable felines over the years. Her favorite was Dickens, named after the Victorian writer. Her hobbies included Scrabble, Mahjong, and tending to her house plants. For downtime she enjoyed listening to music, playing the piano, and watching movies on Netflix. She was known for her dry sense of humor, her infectious smile, and her kind and compassionate spirit. Eleanore was preceded in death by her parents, George F. and Violet Costello, her younger brother, George W. Costello (Patricia), and her husband, Louis Anthony Pulice. She is survived by her three children, Carol-Anne Belke (Christopher), Robert Pulice (Julie), and Lorrie Meirinho, her five grandchildren, Alex Pulice, Meghan Pulice, Alyssa Meirinho, Jessica Meirinho, and Joseph Meirinho, and several cousins, nephews, and nieces. As a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend, and neighbor, she will be greatly missed. At the request of her immediate family, and due to current restrictions on public gatherings, Eleanore’s funeral ceremony will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations in Eleanore’s memory may be made to the ASPCA (
