Passed away peacefully on July 6th in Langley Memorial Hospital after a short illness.
Eleanor was born in Kenaston, Saskatchewan in 1921. In 1929 the family moved to Langley, B.C., where she lived her entire life. After high school she attended business college and worked for many years in the office of Rump And Sendall's Chick Hatchery.
Music was one of the loves of Eleanor's life. An accomplished pianist, she played in bands at many local dances during the war years, as well as being the anchor for several generations of family sing-alongs and concerts. She was also an avid golfer, being one of the original members of Newlands Golf Club.
Eleanor is survived by her sister, Evelyn Cross, of Parksville, and two nephews, Jim Cross (Christina), of North Vancouver, and John Cross, of Parksville.
The family would like to give special thanks to Eleanor's close friends whose loving company and support helped make her final years so much more comfortable.
No service by request.
