Eleanor Cecilia S. Lanning was a colorful, multi-talented "maiden lady" who lived with her Mum in Riverdale in the forties and taught music, "elocution" and was the principal choir director at many Catholic North-Bronx parishes and the organist and driving music force at her Riverdale home parish Saint Margaret's on Riverdale Avenue. She was active in the early forties - I had her for music in 1943 - and very instrumental - no pun intended - in shaping the Sunday sung Mass at Saint Margaret's for many years.
