Eleanor Fufla

December 10, 1952 ~ September 10, 2021 (age 68)


Eleanor Fufla, 68 of Ringtown, departed her loving family on September 10, 2021.

Born in Shenandoah on December 10, 1952, she was the daughter of the late Albert and Helen Bauser and was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, and mother.

A 1970 graduate of Shenandoah Valley High School and a 1974 graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, Eleanor graduated with her degree in education and was a second grade teacher at Father Walter J. Ciszek School in Shenandoah until her retirement.

Eleanor was a member of the former St. George Church and later St. Michael's Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, both in Shenandoah. She was a dedicated member of the Catholic Church and encouraged others to show goodness and kindness through her personal example.

The simplest pleasures brought Eleanor great joy. She loved going out to eat with her husband and going on “jolly holidays” with her daughter. In her retirement, she also enjoyed playing the violin.

In addition to her parents, Eleanor is preceded in death by her brothers, James and Joseph Bauser.

Eleanor is survived by her devoted husband of 35 years, Michael, and her cherished daughter, Julie Yagielniskie, with her husband, Scott. She is also survived by three sisters, Eve Bauser, Helen Thomas, and Jane Paul, her sister-in-law, Shirley Bauser, and extended family.

As per her wishes, private services were held for her immediate family and in Eleanor’s memory,  you are asked to perform an act of kindness for someone.
