June 23, 1923 – October 28, 2019
Dr. Eleanor Bujea was born in the City of Regina in the Province of Saskatchewan. Her parents were Pamfil and Maria Bujea who left Romania for Canada in 1908 and 1910 respectively. Her grandparents were from Moldavia and Fagaras who, after receiving homesteads in Dobrogea, raised their families in the small village of Dorobantu, Dobrogea. Pamfil married Maria Alecxe and left Romania for Canada with his brother-in-law, Dumitru Vilcu to find a better place to raise his family. Pamfil was the oldest of his siblings and, recognizing that his father had limited land resources to leave to the other siblings, left for the “promised land’ where homesteads were for the taking. Pamfil and Maria were early pioneers in Saskatchewan bearing eight children, six of whom survived, became well-educated and entered professional fields. Mary, the oldest, and George held 4 degrees each, Anne held three degrees, Helen chose to be an administrative assistant, Eleanor and John both held 4 degrees each and each earned a doctorate. Eleanor’s work experience showed that she pioneered in a variety of fields involving the community and the education of children, adults and seniors. There will be a Visitation held at St. George Orthodox Church, 2005 Edgar St, Regina, SK on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will be also held at St. George Orthodox Church on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends.
Dr. Bujea was my wonderful Business Ed professor at the U of R. I also worked for her part-time in the dept and went with her to the States to help type her dissertation. I typed the 30-page Bibliography 3 times on an IBM Selectric (before word processors) and learned many format rules! We were hassled at Customs as they wondered why we had two typewriters in the trunk and no paperwork for them, but she maneuvered our way out of the situation!
She was a visionary in Business Education, and I am very grateful for all of her leadership and the opportunities she provided. She truly made a difference in the field of business education and teacher training! May she rest in peace.
