Eleanor M. Golden

Eleanor ‘Big Ellie’ (Ford) Golden, age 75, lifelong resident of South Boston passed away peacefully after a brief illness on the 4th of February, 2019, lovingly surrounded by her family.
Ellie was the matriarch of the family, and her home was the center point. A place where you could guarantee yourself good conversation, a strong cup of coffee, and fierce games of Yahtzee and Gin. Ellie is survived by her three daughters, Doe of Dorchester, Annie of Hanson, and Little Ellie of South Boston. She is also survived by her grandchildren Stephanie, Caitlin, Bobby, and Pat, as well as her great granddaughter Briella and countless other family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the wonderful Kaplan Family Hospice House by check payable to Care Dimensions, mailed to 75 Sylvan Street, Suite B-102, Danvers, MA 01923. Services will be held at a later date.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    Doe, Annie and Little Ellie my heart aches for you. Losing your Mother no matter how old you are is heart breaking. You lose not only your Mom but your best friend too. As hard as it was losing her, I find comfort in knowing that Big Ellie is at peace. Rest in peace Cousin Ellie. You will be loved and missed by many people.
