ADD A MEMORY

Bud,David and I have fond memories of the many camping trips with mom and dad.For some reason mom felt that the campfire should never go out. She would search the forest for sticks to throw in the fire to keep it going so we wouldn't burn up all the good firewood for the nightly roaring fire.I will also cherish the memories from our Alaskan Cruise in 2013 when she and I were roomie's. Going to the piano bar at 10pm and walking into the night club to check out the lighted dance floor.Bud and I also looked forward to mom spending christmas with us these past several years. She loved my crazy decorating. Mom had the most amazing sense of humour and quick wit. Rest well Mom, you were the BEST and I will miss you so so much.

I am going to Miss Aunt Eleanor so much. She was always so full of love and acceptance for as long as I can remember. When I lived in Williams Lake starting out my career, I would get homesick so would go visit Aunt Eleanor in Prince George on my days off. Uncle Roy had just passed away so I knew she liked the company. We would talk for hours and look at photo albums of all the family, she was so proud of her kids, grandkids and great grandkids. Her kids are a reflection of her good nature and kind soul, Karen, Faye, Laurie and Roy, I’m so sorry for your loss, I know she cherished you all so much and I’m so glad we all got to have her in our lives for so long.

I was very fortunate to have had Eleanor as my Mother-In-Law the past 40 years. She had a fantastic personality and sense of humour. We had numerous memorable times together from an Alaska cruise, a few visits to Arizona and especially in the past 5 or 6 years when Faye would bring her back to our house for supper most nights. The one big thing however that stands out in my mind was her love for her family. She stayed in touch with them daily. Along with many I will certainly miss her. Rest in peace Eleanor.

Hopefully I can pass those traditions and values on to my kids. As we grow older FAMILY is everything. These are values that my Aunt Eleanor, my Mom, Vera, Sheldon and the rest of the family that are no longer with us have passed on to us. We need to embrace them so our families continue to stay connected. I love you all and hope we can get together to celebrate LIFE as a group soon.

I remember visiting back and forth with my family, (me - Michael, Kelvin, and youngest brother Raymond my Mom Mildred and my Dad Mike) to the Bush family. We would visit my cousins Faye, Karen, Roy, and Laurie in Ft St John along with there parents Aunty Eleanor and Uncle Roy. Early recollections of my Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Roy were of fun loving couple and let’s have a beer and a laugh much the same as my parents my Mom Mildred , Eleanors sister, and my Dad. I remember good times and lots of laughter over dinners usually a holiday of some type. They moved to Prince George after that so didn’t see for a few years and we were in our teens and lost touch for a short time but mom and Aunty Eleanor always kept in touch ( telephone calls and probably letters if anyone remembers that form of communication). Two sisters who had a bond and had similar circumstances as far as families were concerned made sure they never lost touch with one another. Times weren’t easy back in the day, they did what they had to do to make ends meet just to get by day to day. I look back at my Aunt and Mom along with others (Vera) and their whole generation as people who never had it easy. No complaints you just did what you had to do and that was that. I think my Grandparents were similar. There will probably never be another generation like them . In later years my Aunt Eleanor moved to Dawson Creek to be near her family my Mom Mildred, her sister Helen, another sister Vera, and Her brother Sheldon. Eleanor was always the glue that kept everyone together. My wife ( Teusdae) and I were very fortunate during those years to have the two (moms) Aunt Eleanor and my Mom (Mildred) visit us many weekends for dinner at our farm. Laughs and maybe a joke or two and enjoying each other’s company and sharing experiences and family news was always for me and my family a cherished event that I will carry with me the rest of days.

it’s such a blurry memory but i remember when i was very young and got to go to nanny’s apartment and she would make potato soup and fried bread, and after that day i couldn’t ever eat any other potato soup because it was never as good. i would also get so excited finding out id get to see nanny. i love and miss her very very much.

One of Mom's favourite fruits have always been oranges. She loved coming to visit when we were in Arizona for the winter. She just could not believe that we had trees laden with hundreds of big juicy oranges just waiting for her to pick. I am sure some days she would eat a dozen of them.

I remember meeting Sterlings Aunt Eleanor when we brought her sister Lorraine and my newborn son to Prince George for the first time (36 years ago). Lorraine, Eleanor, Louis, went to bingo. They were so excited that Mom won and they went shopping on the way home for a baby car seat. She was a very kind and loving person. May she rest peacefully.
