July 14, 1918 – January 7, 2016
With heavy hearts the family of Lenora Jones announces her passing. Lenora is predeceased by her husband Curtis Jones and his son David, her parents Thordur and Jona Axdal, and her siblings Woodrow, Kris, Johnnie, Evelyn, Elmina, Bjorg, Halli, Emily, Louise, Olive and May.
Lenora is survived by her very many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, great-great nieces and great-great nephews. She is also survived by her step-daughter Victoria and Victoria’s children and grandchildren.
Lenora was born and raised in Wynyard, Sask and in 1942 she graduated from Winnipeg General Hospital School of Nursing. She thoroughly enjoyed her nursing career at Herrick Hospital in Berkeley, California for over 25 years where she held the position of RN, Chief Surgical Supervisor.
Upon her retirement, Lennie and Curt moved to Black Creek, BC where they enjoyed time fishing together and the company of surrounding family. After Curt’s passing, Lennie and her dear sister Evie made several trips to Hawaii to visit their sister and back to the prairies to visit family there. They shared many laughs during their travels and the two sisters had a very special bond. Lennie also loved selling Christmas trees at the Oyster River from her sister Louise and husband Jim’s Christmas tree farms. She loved swimming in the pool with family as well as happy hour on the porch.
Lennie finished out her days at Cumberland Lodge where, even at 97 years of age, she liked to stop by the nurses’ station and give them a few tips on how to get things done.
Lennie’s family will be having a private celebration of life and scattering her ashes in the ocean.
