Derry, NH - Eleanor (Flint) Hines "Ellie" passed away at home after a long battle with COPD. She now joins her beloved husband, Danny Hines, who passed seven years ago. She was a daughter of Cyrus and Cordelia "Kitty" Flint and loved by her stepfather, Angelo Padula. She is predeceased by four brothers, John Slocum, Cy, Donald and Harold "Popeye" Flint all of Marlboro, MA where she was raised. Her and Danny met while working at the Frye Boot Factory in Marlboro. She also spent many years working the counter at the Waltham Super Ette Snack Bar. She was a people person and many people stopped in just to chat with her regularly.
Ellie was a fun-loving person who had many friends and loved to be on the go. Her and Danny lived in Marlboro, Waltham, Cincinnati, Ohio, Naples, FL and finally Derry, N.H. They gathered friends everywhere they went. They enjoyed bowling, the Red Sox, diners, Oldies music, Hampton Beach and spending as much time as possible amongst friends and family. Ellie loved cats and had many throughout her life. The latest being Button who was her baby.
She leaves behind two sons, John Packard of Manchester, NH and David Packard and wife, Jean of Chester, NH; a granddaughter, Jillian Packard of Derry and one great-granddaughter, Kaylee.
After cremation, a memorial service will be held Friday, August 30, 2019 at 1 p.m. at the Church of the Transfiguration, 1 Hood Rd., Derry. Private burial will be held by the family in Mount Feake Cemetery, Waltham, at a later date. Because Ellie was an avid donor to many establishments, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Derry Meals on Wheels, 39 W Broadway, Derry, NH 03038. The Peabody Funeral Homes & Crematorium is assisting with the family with arrangements. To send a condolence, or for more information, please visit www.peabodyfuneralhome.com

Hi David and family. This is Jennifer and Bill Skeen in Cincinnati.
David, I know you remember us. We lived right next to you guys.
I have been wrighting her for over 30 years, up until we saw this obit. She just recently called me and said she was very excited to have a new granddaughter and talked about Joey all the time.
We just saw that she had passed. I just sent her a card today at her address.
Again, David, we're so very sorry!
She was a great lady and we shared a lot over the phone these many years.
Please feel free to call Jennifer at any time. God bless you all.
She loved you all very much!
