Eleanor ‘Itty’ Sobol

Denver native Eleanor “Itty” Sobol passed away on April 30, 2023. She was 95. A service was held on May 2 at Emanuel Cemetery, officiated by Rabbi Steven Foster. Feldman Mortuary handled the arrangements.

Born on March 24, 1928, Mrs. Sobol (nee Kaminsky) attended East High School and DU. She founded Columbia Credit Corporation, a retail collection agency.

In 1947, Eleanor married Bernie Sobol, who became a prominent Denver attorney. The Sobols were a couple for 43 years until Mr. Sobol’s passing in April, 1990.

Mrs. Sobol was an active volunteer at Asthmatic Home, Rose Hospital and Hadassah. She was also a volunteer firefighter and police officer.

“She made friends easily and was always there when someone needed help or advice,” her family said. “We will miss her laugh, her hug and her heart.”

“Bubie was a study in fabulosity,” her granddaughter Shayna Cohn Ellis said, “how to be fabulous doing almost anything or nothing at all.

“But mostly, she knew how to enjoy the sweetness in life.”

Survivors are Mrs. Sobol’s children Ruth Sobol (Jack) Cohn, Steve Sobol, Stan Sobol and Sheila (Jeff) Sobol; sister Zelda Friednash; grandchildren Shayna Cohn (Eden) Ellis and Bradley (Sheila Blatt) Cohn; and four great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Sobol was preceded in death by her second husband, Louis Nasbarg.
