Nobile, Eleanor, nee: Schiess, age 93, of Leonia, passed peacefully on Saturday August 21, 2021. Born and raised in Cliffside Park to the Late Fred and Grace (nee: Paruola) Schiess. Eleanor was a graduate of Cliffside Park High School, class of 1945.

Married in 1947, Eleanor was the beloved wife to the late Joseph Nobile. In 1953, Eleanor moved with her family to Leonia, where they still reside today. Eleanor enjoyed her younger years spending time cooking, baking, and sewing and she was happiest when doing so for others. Known for her take charge attitude, no task was too big for her to take on.

Eleanor will be remembered as a loving mother to Deborah and her husband Patrick Botten, a cherished grandmother to Jennifer Botten and Jessica and husband Frank Coccaro, Jr., an adored great grandmother to Louis Joseph and Frank Nicholas Coccaro, III, and a dear aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Memories Timeline


  1. To the Best Cousins Ever,
    I would like to express my deepest condolences to the passing of "L". Being my late dads sister and living next door to her for decades made so many great memories. She was my Godmother, my baby sitter, my daughters baby sitter, my Dads baby sitter my playmate and of course my chef. Her eggplant parm was incredible. She lived a very long and happy life and we be missed by all.

    Thoughts and Prayers,

    The Schiess Family

    Don, Tracey and Kimberly

  2. Aunt Ellie always made me feel welcome and loved when I was part of the Schiess family. She would always greet you with her lovely smile. Ellie was also a remarkable seamstress! She made all of my son Brian’s Halloween costumes when he was a child, such as Barney the Dinosaur, Noah’s Ark, an Elephant, Zeus, Hercules, and our little Firecracker when he was 9 months old. Absolutely amazing.

    And I agree wholeheartedly with Don Schiess. Her eggplant parm, was by far, the best ever!

    I will truly miss her. My condolences to her family.
