DEATHS

ELINOR KRIDEL BERNHEIM, 85, a social-welfare volunteer whose widely cast interests ranged from the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies and Columbia University's School of Social Work to a community center she founded in the Bronx, N.Y., died Friday at her Upper East Side Manhattan home. She died after a long illness, her family said. Mrs. Bernheim relentlessly made the rounds of board rooms, foundation offices and charity luncheons and dinners, starting in the 1940s. The New York Times' About New York column once described her as "The Queen of Volunteers."
