Eleanor lived life to its fullest in her 96 plus years. Curling bonspiels and golfing escapades will be fondly remembered by all the people she encountered and the numerous lives she touched.

The doctors, nurses and staff at the Emerson Personal Care Home took very special care of Eleanor for the last nine years of her life.

The family wishes to thank Brenda Lange and Marnie Beninger for their friendship and companionship throughout her years and especially during her time at the care home, where their frequent visits were always welcomed and uplifting for Eleanor.

Donations in memory of Eleanor’s life may be made to the Emerson Golf Club, c/o Mr. Craig Mackie, P.O. Box 272, Emerson, Manitoba R0A 0L0.
