Eleanor Helen Reimer
September 30, 1927 – August 13, 2012
With heavy hearts, the family of Eleanor Reimer wishes to announce her passing on Aug. 13 at age 84 years after a short battle with lung cancer. She is predeceased by her husband, Jake, sisters Irene Ricketts and Lorna Jarvis and brother Stuart Woodcock.
She is survived by her children, Stewart Reimer, Elaine Reimer, Rob Reimer, Jackie Goodwin and Geri Reimer and grandchildren Jebb Goodwin, Dustin Goodwin and Antonia Vandenbrink.
Over the years, in addition to being a farmers’ wife and mother, she kept herself even busier with many of her own interests. These included bird watching, curling, sewing, weaving, gardening, and later in life, she became an avid T.V. sports fan. She loved having company and was always happy to welcome visitors with a smile, a cup of coffee and a good chat.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Ken Perrier for his compassionate care over the past number of years as well as the staff of the Emergency unit at VJH.
Cremation has preceded a Celebration of Life, which will be held at the Schubert Centre on Saturday, August 25 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family request that a donation be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
