Date of Death: August 30, 2022

Date of Birth: November 12, 1931


Brunswick, ME - Eleanor “Ellie” Peters, 90, transitioned peacefully, with family by her side, after a brief illness. She was blessed with a long life and was ready to go when the Lord called her home. Ellie was born in Nashua, NH to Martin and Mary Twardosky. She believed that her parents were the most wonderful parents as they were also her role models. She attended the local Nashua schools, continuing to live and work in the area, even after she got married and started her own family. Eventually she relocated to Yarmouth, ME to be closer to family there. She was always a “people” person and enjoyed her work at International Paper Box Machine Company (Nashua, NH) and later at Nephrology Associates (Portland, ME). She was a devout Catholic and member of the Sacred Heart choir for 25 years. She loved music, dancing, canoeing, skiing, playing golf, and being outside, but especially spending time with family and friends and traveling. Her love of travel took her to places near and far including: U.S., Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and more. She was always a “go go girl!”


She was predeceased by her father, brother (Eddie), mother, Aunts, Uncles and husbands. She is survived by her five children, Gary Peters (Noella), Scott Peters (Patty), Nick Moraros (Cammy), Marty Moraros, Lorrie Poirier (Norm), ten grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.
