Eleanor Walor, 83


Dracut, MA — Eleanor (Mscisz) Walor, 83, passed away April 30 at Holy Family Hospital surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of Frederick M. “Pat” Walor with whom she celebrated 66 years of marriage on April 13.

Eleanor was born in Peabody on February 25, 1930, a daughter of the late Anna (Babiarz) and John Mscisz.
