It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Eleanor Jones after a brief stay at Cowichan District Hospital, one month short of her 89th birthday.
Eleanor was predeceased by her husband Vernon in 2000 as well as her parents and 5 siblings. She is survived by her three sons Kerry (Cindy), Daryl (Cindy), and Michael (Gillian); her eight grandchildren Christopher, Candace, Sarah, Paul (Jennifer), Pamela (Matt), Evan, Graeme, and Colin; two great-grandchildren Connor and Aubrey; one brother Sid Andrew (Barb); sister-in-law Elaine Jones (Tom Browne); and numerous nieces and nephews.
Eleanor was the second youngest of seven children born in North St. Eleanors, P.E.I. to Eleanor (Nell) and Harry Andrew. She was a strong, independent and positive person, who gardened with great skill and was very resourceful in maintaining her home of 60 plus years. She bought a much wanted truck at 77 years old, loved her computer, and was always interested in the latest technology. Eleanor loved family gatherings, seafood dinners, and going out for lunch. She was well-liked by all who met her and much loved by her family, who were not expecting to lose her so suddenly. Mom will be sadly missed.
The family would like to thank Dr. Nadine Robertson, Beth (CDH), Kelly (Home Care) for all their help, and the Duncan Fire Department, which was a big part of Eleanor and Vernon’s life.
A celebration of her life will be held in the near future.
