Passed away, in the presence of her children, Cindy, Jeff, and Pat, at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital on Nov. 8 following a Primary Brain Cancer (GBM Gr. IV) diagnosis in June, 2019. Eleanor was 76 years old. Always proud to call Calgary, AB her birthplace, Eleanor graduated from Crescent Heights High in June of 1960. After starting her family in 1962, having three children in under 3 years, Eleanor returned to school and earned her Associate Diploma in Nursing from Mount Royal College and received her certificate of entitlement to be known as a Registered Nurse in November 1972. Eleanor practiced nursing in Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Mississauga. In the 1980’s she refocused her energies toward the not-for-profit sector in a number of roles, including the capacity of Executive Director, until her retirement. Eleanor was predeceased by her beloved grandmother, Gram, (1992), her father (1994), her mother (2014) and is survived by her brother Don. Eleanor took extraordinary pride in her 4 eldest grandchildren Erin, Alexandra, Bailey, & Yvette enjoying biennial trips to the Land Down Under from the early 1990’s thru 2007 to visit them. She was also a doting Grandma to her youngest grandchild Mason, born in 2012, whom she adored spending lots of time with as he lived nearby in Oakville. Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation, funeral service, or celebration of life - those were Eleanor’s wishes. The list of healthcare providers, caregivers, support workers and volunteers who were so genuinely kind, compassionate, caring and patient in helping Eleanor through her end of life journey over the past 5 months was significant! Your unwavering support through some extraordinarily trying times was instrumental to ensuring Eleanor’s comfort and safety and provided peace of mind for her family - for that we are enormously grateful to all of you! Special thanks to Dr. Kazem, Yolanda Richardson and the Palliative Care team at OTMH! Our sincerest gratitude is especially extended to: Wendy Vella, the Client Services Team and all the PSW’s at OSCR; St. Elizabeth’s Healthcare Nurses at OSCR; Staff at O.S.R. Pharmacy; Marlene Grzesiak, Palliative Care Coordinator, Regional Programs, LHIN; Chris Monaghan, RN, Acclaim Health; Connect Care Staff and Volunteers at OTMH; Angela Lee, Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner, LHIN Dr. Massoud, OTMH; Nurses and staff on 6C Oncology at OTMH; All the Bartimaeus Behaviour Support Workers, but most notably Nataliya; Nurses and staff on 5S at OTMH; Nurses and staff in the 3N Palliative Care Unit at OTMH. In lieu of flowers donations to Brain Cancer Research at the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.

Sad to see this news. Spent many a Sunday in the 90s with Eleanor volunteering at bingo! I remember Pat being there often too. She was one of the most persistent, determined people I have ever known and she will be missed.

I was glad to have been a part of Eleanor's work to fight substance abuse via her Parents Against Drugs and then Peel Partners for a Drug-Free Community organizations, and co-organizing the fund-raising bicycle rides from Mississauga to Niagara Falls.
Eleanor was very supportive of me and my family, and my children enjoyed participating in her miniature golf and bowling fundraisers.
It was my pleasure to enjoy visits and walks with Eleanor along the Bronte waterfront this summer and autumn.
My condolences go out to Pat, Jeff, and Cindy, who provided amazing care and attention to their mother in these difficult months.

I have been out of the country and missed this post last week. I’m sorry to hear of Eleanors passing and will remember good times spent as neighbors.
