Eleanor AngstadtJuly 17, 1952 ~ July 22, 2017 (age 65)
Eleanor Weary Angstadt, 65, of Upper Uwchlan Township died on Saturday, July 22 after an unexpected battle with cancer. She was a loyal wife, compassionate mother, and devoted Catholic who believed in the sanctity of family above all else. Born on July 17, 1952 in Harrisburg, PA, she was the child of Hermas “Bud” and Eleanor (Morriss) Weary. Her father was a lawyer and her mother was a medical technician. As a child, her family regularly vacationed in Ocean City, a New Jersey beach town. She continued vacationing there with her own family until her death. She grew up in Carlisle and Camp Hill, and graduated from Trinity High School. She obtained a B.S. in Special Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and taught special needs children for eight years. She married John Angstadt in 1977 and had two sons soon after. When her children were young, she put aside her career and devoted herself to raising them full time. After they grew up, she took a receptionist job at the local YMCA where she was much loved by co-workers and clientele. An active member of Saint Elizabeth Catholic Parish since its founding, she worked tirelessly as a Bible study organizer. Strong in the face of death, she looks forward to seeing her mother, father, and stillborn child in the next life. She is survived by her husband John, two sons Michael of Conshohocken and Matthew of Downingtown, and brother Father William Weary of Lewistown.
