Silverstein, Eleanor Dorothy (Gottlob)- 90 of Margate City, passed away peacefully at home on January 25, 2019. Eleanor was born and raised in the Wynnefield section of West Philadelphia and moved to South Jersey after meeting the love of her life in 1948. She is predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Meyer Silverstein; her son, Ivan Silverstein; and sister, Cecilia Lederer.

Eleanor’s appreciation for beauty and her creativity was reflected in everything she did and who she was. She was an avid collector of antiques of all kinds, had a love for gardening for which she was awarded the Best Landscaped Home by the City of Margate, and knitted multitudes of hats, scarves and sweaters for her grandchildren. Her sense of style was so impeccable that she earned the title of The Best Dressed Woman in Atlantic City. She was a true homemaker.

Eleanor was involved in the community through her charitable deeds for World Ort, American Heart Association and Hadassah.

Eleanor is survived by her daughter, Lea Bennard of Somers Point; her son, Merrill Silverstein of Margate; and her 6 grandchildren, Marla Bennard of Somers Point, Molly Bennard of New York City, Jason Silverstein of Margate, Aaron Silverstein of New York City, Eric Silverstein of Margate and Ryan Alexander of Egg Harbor Township. She was a great-grandmother to Jason Jr, Audrey, Sofia, Mason and Aubree.

She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Graveside services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Monday, January 28, 2019, at Har Nebo Cemetery in Philadelphia. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Alzheimer’s Association at
