Aileen T. (Chapman) Eldredge

April 29, 1928 ~ August 11, 2023 (age 95) 95 Years Old


With profound sadness we announce the passing of Aileen Eldredge, our loving mother and friend to all whose lives she touched, on August 11, 2023. She was 95 years old.
Born in her family's farm home to Hervey and Flossie Chapman, mom graduated with the Skaneateles High School class of 1946 and remained a life-long resident of Skaneateles. She was married to the love of her life Karl for 72 years and missed him every day of her remaining time on earth. She was devoted to her children Linda Kankoski (Jim), Dick Eldredge (Cindy), and Brenda (Ralph Banks), and loving "Nan" to her 7 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, and 4 great great grandchildren.
Mom worked at many places after her children were grown; Taylor's paint store, the Fennell Street Handbag Factory and also sold Avon products. She was an accomplished painter, sang with the Sweet Adelines and the St. Andrews Methodist Church choir where she was an active member. Mom made beautifully decorated cakes for every birthday and wedding for her many family members and friends. She spent many hours at her kitchen table playing games and cards with her grandkids and great grandkids and loved walking the beaches in Delaware and Florida collecting shells, which she proudly displayed in the home our dad built. She will be greatly missed but we know that Mom and Dad are now dancing together in Heaven.

Services will be private with burial in Mottville Cemetery. Donations may be made in her name to St. Andrews United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 223 Skaneateles Falls, NY.  The Bush Funeral Home of Elbridge had charge of arrangements.
