Obituary of Eleanor Hope Mason

Eleanor H. Mason, 84, of Egg Harbor Township, passed away on May 27, 2021, surrounded by loved ones after a valiant battle with leukemia. Eleanor was born April 23, 1937 to Beatrice and Arthur Turner, Sr. in Atlantic City. She graduated from Atlantic City High School and attended Glassboro College. She began working at the young age of 13, holding numerous jobs. In 1981, she went to work as a teacher’s aide for the Egg Harbor Township School District, and also, Eagle Academy until she retired. She devoted most of her time to family first and then the casino, shopping, gardening and crafting. Eleanor will always be remembered for her ability to endlessly love and care for others. Without hesitation she would be your confidant, protector, or shoulder to cry on. She was the life of the party anywhere she went with her beaming smile and charismatic energy. Eleanor is predeceased by her parents, her siblings, Marion Young, Len Barnes and Arthur Turner Jr. She is survived by her sisters, Frances Jones, Beatrice “Weedie” Dato and Barbara Harris; her children, Pamela Murray-Peoples (Henry), Fern Murray, Letitia Wilder (Darrell), Liana Mason and Leon Murray Jr. (Gina); her grandchildren, Jacinta Wood, Phillip Barnes Jr., Kamilah Sellers, Derrell Wilder and Darrell Wilder Jr.; her great-grandchildren, Julian and Kiera, and a host of family and friends.
