It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Aunt Eleanor. Predeceased by her husband Weldon (Bill) in 2014, sister June Boyd in 1993 and brother James Thomson in 2002. Eleanor was born and educated in Alberta, and received her Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta in 1955.

Eleanor was admired for her poise, intelligence and elegant style. She was an active member of The Church of the Holy Trinity. Eleanor will be missed by her sister-in-law Jessie Thomson, Surrey. Her nephews Stephen (Debbie) Crombie and John Thomson of Vancouver, and Bill (Barbara) Boyd of Nanaimo. Her nieces Patricia (Dan) Howard and Jane (Mike) Blaine of Surrey and Laura (Rick) Willett of Coquitlam, great nieces and nephews, and her many good friends. A Service of Remembrance will be held at the The Church of the Holy Trinity, 15115 Roper Avenue, White Rock on October 29th at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers please give to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, or the charity of your choice.
