Ellen had been a faithful employee of Sheerer Bearing Corporation in Horsham, PA for decades, only retiring as their Office Manager when she broke her hip at the age of 82.

Ellen was one of my favorite people for the 16 years that I worked at Scheerer Bearing. As one of her Grandchildren described her, "Fiesty and Funny", is how I will always remember Ellen. She was a straight shooter with a heart of gold who dearly loved her family. God Bless you Ellen and prayers to her family.

Ellen DiRenzo was my grandmother and she was a feisty, funny, and loving woman. If any people who cannot attend the funeral mass due to distance or prefer to avoid large gathers due to Covid, I will be living streaming through Google Meet. Mass starts at Friday 17 at 11am but the eulogy given by another of her granddaughters will start around 10:55. I will start the live stream around 10:50am.
