Obituary: Eleanor F. Tessler

Friday, 30 July 2010 00:00

Eleanor F. Tessler
Eleanor F. Tessler, 88, passed away peacefully on June 27, 2010, lovingly surrounded by members of her immediate family. Born Eleanor Licht in Brooklyn on Jan. 28, 1922, she earned a bachelor’s degree from CCNY and her master’s from Columbia Teacher’s College. She met and married Ted Tessler (1919 – 1981) in 1950 and moved to Great Neck two years later. Eleanor was widely known for her culinary talents, studying at the Cordon Bleu in Paris, training with Chinatown chef and teacher Florence Lin, and ultimately teaching Chinese cooking classes in her Kensington home in the 1970s. She traveled extensively throughout the world and worked as a travel agent for 20 years. Eleanor was an avid community volunteer, contributing her time to numerous progressive causes, non-profit organizations and campaigns in support of the arts in Great Neck and beyond. She loved film, theater, dance, fiction, and the visual arts, and most of all, sharing quality time with family and a broad circle of loyal and cherished friends. She will be profoundly missed.

Eleanor is survived by her children, Jonathan, Lisa and Jamie and their families, including grandchildren, Joanna, Jessica, Julian and Theo. In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested that donations may be made in her memory to the Great Neck Senior Center, Womanspace, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center or Doctors without Borders.

Catherine Condon
1914-2010
Great Neck English Teacher

Catherine Anna (nee Sanschagrin, Murray) grew up in Rouses Point on Lake Champlain in upstate New York just south of the Canadian border. Every morning before school, she would go for a swim in the lake’s icy waters. Most mornings she found herself swimming past a hotel on the lake north of her home. As morning breakfast was being served to patrons of the hotel out on the back porch, people would call out for her to join them for a hearty meal, but she always replied, “No thank you, my mother told me not to.” Her formative years found her quite active in sports, including tennis, volleyball, rowing, track and basketball.
