Obituary for Eleanora "Ellie" Posella Federici

Eleanora Posella Federici died peacefully at her home in Seabrook Village on March 1, 2018 surrounded by her loving family.

Born on October 8, 1920 in Newark, Ellie was the daughter of the late Antonio and Gilda Posella. The family moved to East Orange, and she graduated from East Orange High School. After high school, she worked as Secretary of the Victory Clothing Company of Newark. She volunteered as a Red Cross nurse’s aide during World War II.

In 1947, she married the boy next door, Pascal L. Federici MD. Dr. Federici was a U.S. Air Force Flight Surgeon and the young couple spent their early years in Texas, Japan and Toledo, Ohio. In 1955, they moved to West Long Branch NJ, where they lived for 50 years and raised their four children. Their historic Victorian home quickly became the gathering place for family events and holiday celebrations.

Ellie was active in the Women’s Auxiliary of the Monmouth County Medical Society, serving as vice president and chairman of the Scholarship Committee.

She will be remembered for her complete devotion to her family, her quiet strength, sweet nature, disarming sense of humor, and beautiful smile.

Ellie was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Pascal L. Federici, MD, her sister Constance Bonadies, her brother Frank Posella and her brother-in-law Frederick Federici, Jr.

She will be greatly missed by her surviving family: her dearest brother Anthony Posella; her brother-in-law Armand Federici; her children Pascal L. Federici Jr and his wife Linda, Stephanie Federici, Jeffery Federici and Christopher Federici and his wife Ishel; her grandchildren, Nicole Federici, Jessica Federici, Carolyn Stack, Pascal Federici and Christopher D. Federici, and her great grandchildren, Max, Jake, Zoey, Duke, Dominic and Eleanora (Nora) as well as her many beloved nieces and nephews.

A funeral mass will be celebrated on Saturday, March 3 at 1 pm at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, Lincoln Avenue, Avon by the Sea, NJ. Prior to the service the family will receive friends and family from 12:30 pm onward at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ellie’s name can be made to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at www.stjude.org.
