Eleanor was nurtured and raised by her parents, William and Carrie Sheridan. God called Eleanor home on Monday, October 25, 2021. As a native Baltimorian, she received her education from the Baltimore City Public School system. Following her education, she was employed with the Continental Can Company until her retirement. As a young woman, Eleanor met and fell in love with her sweetheart Alfred Peels. She often told the story of how they met on a bus stop. She loved to watch him play basketball with his friends. She wooed him with her cooking and her beauty. According to Alfred, “she was the total package”. They were married on July 3,1947 and from this union four children were born. Eleanor loved church. She and Alfred joined Mt. Zion United Methodist Church at its original location before it relocated to Wabash Avenue. She was a devoted member of Mt. Zion for over many years. Throughout her membership, she enjoyed attending church events. Faithfully, she gave her support, love, and encouraging words with a smile and praise. Eleanor was the biggest supporter of Mt. Zion’s Dance Ministry. When the liturgical dancers moved, she would join in with singing, dancing, clapping and worshiping God. “Blessed Assurance” and “Jesus, The Light of the World” were Eleanor’s favorite hymns. Her grandchildren loved sitting with her in church as she passed out jellybeans and peppermints. Eleanor was well known and honored in the Parkview community where she resided for more than 60 years. She was known for her vibrant red hair, classic dress style and manicured nails. Eleanor walked with pride and class. Everyone enjoyed her cooking and her legacy recipes. Her family looked forward to her sweet potato pies, mac and cheese, and sauerkraut with pigtails served on Thanksgiving and Christmas. No one has ever quite mastered her recipes. Her meals were prepared with love. On October 25, 2021, Eleanor went to join her husband Alfred Peels and three children, Larry Peels, Sr., Melvin Peels and Carlos James in Heaven. She leaves to cherish her precious legacies and memories, three daughters; Deborah Peels Jackson (Shephard), Patricia Peels, Tanayra Peels. Eleanor leaves a host of grandchildren, Larry (Christina), Lisa (Carroll Sr), Antonio (Jinine), Sherray, Yolanda, Melissa, Torrie, Chantaye, Patrick (Genelle), De’Ja and DeErica. Eleanor doted over great and great-great grandchildren. Her friends, relatives and the Parkwood Avenue community members will miss her sorely.
