ELINOR GIESBRECHT (RUSHOC)
Born: Mar 04, 1941
Date of Passing: Sep 07, 2019Offer Condolences or Memory
March 4, 1941 - September 7, 2019
Elinor is survived by her husband Victor, of 60 years; two children, son Terry (Sandra), and daughter Lisa (Emil); two sisters, Joan Cherewyk and Judy Tudor; as well as nieces and a nephew.
Elinor was predeceased by her parents, John and Kay Rushoc.
Elinor grew up and went to school in Brooklands, Winnipeg, then moved to Charleswood in 1971, where they settled ever since. Elinor's loves were her family, gardening and camping in their trailer. Many wonderful memories were made travelling across Canada, with a special trip up to Alaska. Elinor will be greatly missed by all, including many friends. As one of Jehovah's Witnesses for over 48 years, Elinor found great comfort from the Bible and God's future promise for the earth recorded at Revelation 21:3,4, when there will be no more sorrow, pain or death.
The family would like to thank the staff at Riverview, the doctors and nurses that provided such tender care.
As per Elinor's wishes, cremation has taken place and no service will be held.
Flowers are gratefully declined.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Our heartfelt condolences to you - Vic, Terry & Lisa. Elinor was a wonderful person and cared about others. She was kind-hearted and generous. She often helped out those that needed a ride to the hall or just some encouraging words. For years she looked for opportunities to help Kris Z. and Irene P. and many others that are no longer with us, also benefited from her kindness. We hope that happy memories of Elinor and the Bible's promise of a time when we can see our loved ones again will bring you some comfort in these difficult days. - Posted by: Kim & Dave Paradis (Friend) on: Sep 19, 2019
