Eleanor Viola (Winter) Williams

November 18, 1931- August 15, 2014

Our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Eleanor Williams passed away on August 15 2014 in Prince George, BC.

Eleanor grew up in Toronto and Orono, ON and married Douglas E. Williams (1930

-1984) who was in the Air Force. They settled in Comox, BC where Eleanor developed skills first as an oil painter and then continued as an art teacher for over thirty years. Eleanor was a crafter and made toys under Gram & Gramps Toybox with her partner Doug Poley for over a decade in Comox. Eleanor moved to Prince George in 1999 and enjoyed the drier sunny seasonal climate.

Mom leaves behind two daughters and one son in law: Sharron Fleet, Wendy and Rich Girard; Grandchildren: Jonathan, Nolan (Jennifer Gow) and Sonya Fleet, Devin and Spencer Girard; Great Grandson Decklen Fleet.

Predeceased by and waiting with open arms to greet her! Her partner, Doug Poley; sister Doreen and parents Cliff and Elva Winter.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff and caregivers at Jubilee Lodge for doing such a great job in caring for Eleanor over the past two months; especially keeping her spark alive until the last moments.

At her request there will be no service.
