Eleanor V. (Amero) Gagnon, 90, of Woburn, died peacefully, Monday, April 30th at her home. She was the beloved wife of 49 years to the late Daniel W. Gagnon.

Born and raised in Concord, Eleanor was a daughter of the late Irving and Ethel (Royce) Amero.

Eleanor dedicated her life to raising and caring for her family. Until the age of 82 Eleanor worked in retail, where she met and made a host of friends and acquaintances.

She enjoyed knitting, reading, solving puzzles and walking downtown to visit friends and enjoy breakfast at Cousins Restaurant.  She was also actively involved with the Immaculate Conception  Drum and Bugle Corp, travelling all over the state to parades and competitions. Eleanor was able and blessed to have traveled to Italy on two occasions.  She enjoyed all of the beautiful country side and was thrilled to have visited Rome.   Eleanor enjoyed watching parades, particularly the Halloween parade, but most importantly it was all about spending time and being surrounded by her family, which brought her the most joy.  Family is what her life was truly all about and they all meant the world to her.

    My sincerest condolences to the family.

    I enjoyed Eleanors company when I drove for Checker Cab and picked her up trips to Market Basket.

    We corresponded through mail when she lost her phone in my cab.

    Her sense of humor is what I’ll remember forever!

    Eleanor was a dear friend and devoted Windsor Button colleague. Her dry wit and astute comments never failed to bring a smile. We will miss her, and always remember her fondly.

    Brenda, Sandy, Marsh and Andrea,

    We are so sorry to hear about Aunt Eleanor. She was a great person and you should be proud to have had her as your mother.

    We had some great times together and we have some great memories to look back on.

    I will not be able to make the funeral but my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    May God bless all of you,
    John & Cathy Amero
