We Remember

LIND, Elenora Christine

November 14, 1936 — October 31, 2023

The time has come to remember the life of Elenora Lind, who passed away peacefully on October 31, 2023, at the age of 86.

Elenora goes to join her beloved husband, Earl, who passed in 2010. Left to treasure her memory are her three children, Christine (Roger), Murray (Gloria decd.), and Lonny (Michelle); two grandchildren, Alexandra (Shawn) and Gregory; and two great-grandchildren, Kinley and Ellie. As well as numerous nieces and nephews, and many other extended family members.

Elenora was born on November 14, 1936, to Edward and Hedwig, and was the youngest of five children. She would tell us stories about riding her horse to school! Her first job was as a bank teller after graduating from high school; way before there were calculators!  Elenora married her sweetheart, Earl, in 1958, and soon after they welcomed their children Christine, Murray, and eventually Lonny into their lives. The family moved around and worked in many different areas before settling in Westbank, British Columbia. After retiring, Elenora and Earl bought an RV and a big diesel truck and travelled to their heart’s content for fifteen years. They hit every US state, except for Hawaii. Elenora loved to read, anything and everything, and she was always very crafty. The family fondly remembers her outspoken personality and her “tell it like it is” attitude. She will be deeply missed by those whose lives she touched.

Elenora’s remains will be laid to rest next to her dearest Earl.

There will be no formal service held. Family and friends will each honour Elenora in their own way.

Memorial donations may be sent to the BC Cancer Society.
