Eileen R. Deluca

Eileen R. Deluca (nee Bell), 83, born April 3, 1938, passed away at her home on July 19, 2021. She was the loving mother of five children (Joseph, Donna, Anthony, Michael and Robert), and grandmother of twelve.

She will be missed by all, including Maggie May her cherished dog. Never a daughter-in-law, Suzanne was always thought of as another daughter.

Eileen was predeceased by her parents, Esther and Max Bell of Philadelphia, PA and by her brothers Donald and Marvin. In her earlier years she was known as Philly’s first shoe shine girl. Not afraid of hard work, she then opened the Towne Crier Tavern in Philadelphia. Upon retirement, she enjoyed playing bingo and poker.

Eileen loved spending time with family and friends. Often, she would be laughing, telling colorful life stories and sharing her love of cooking with her grandchildren, especially Giovanni, Gianna, Angelo, and Dante, creating family traditions. Despite the many miles, Tj and Linda were always in her thoughts.

Services will be held on Friday, July 23, 2021 at 11am at Locustwood Memorial Park, 1500 Marlton Pike West, Cherry Hill, NJ.

Thank you very much for your services,

The Latigona family
