It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear mother, mother-in-law, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend. Eleanore was born March 23, 1932 on a farm west of Mendham, Saskatchewan to parents Christian and Katherine Heck. She spent her younger years and twenties in the Mendham area, helping raise younger siblings and providing quality child care to many families in the area. She was a Ward Aide in the Prelate, Saskatchewan Hospital before moving to Calgary. That is where she met and in 1967, married her husband of 22 years.
From 1973, until her passing away on her farm near Scapa on October 29, 2013 she spent many years dedicating her life to the farm, her animals and raising her children. She also proudly adored her 10 grandchildren.
She leaves behind four children: son-Daniel (Tania) Servonnet, their children Dayton and Amy; daughters Katherine (Raymond) Heilman, their children Christian, Anthony and Elizabeth; Marguerite (Kerry) Tennant, their children Joshua, Aleah, and Logan; Geraldine (Ken) Fleming and their children Victoria and Kalan.
