Eleanor Elizabeth McKillop,
age 76, passed away peacefully February 9, 2021. She was born the only child on June 25, 1944 in Sunnidale Corners in Stayner Ontario to Bill and Ruth Robertson. She was married to her high school sweetheart, Allan Ramsey McKillop for 49 years, who preceded her in death in 2014.
Eleanor loved people and celebrations. She loved to bake and host parties with “yummy” meals for her family and friends. She was an avid photographer, and she has graciously left her children with a beautiful pictorial journey of their early years that they will forever treasure.
Eleanor was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She is survived by her four children; David and his wife Annette, Drew and his wife Kristine, Amanda and her husband Rob and Sarah; grandchildren Daryl, Alysia, Jodi, Julia, Jenna, Austin, Emerson, Faith, Aiden and Hannah; great grandchild Mason and her many nephews and nieces. All of these she loved and touched deeply.
The family would like to thank the staff at Arthur Caressant Care for helping her live her best life with Alzheimer’s Disease. She was treated with dignity and compassion and we are very grateful for this. A kind soul was Eleanor, and she has touched many hearts who have known her.
The family will be celebrating her life on Friday, February 12, 2021 at the Crawford Funeral Chapel, Arthur. A link to view Eleanor’s service will be available below on Monday, February 15, 2021 at 9:00 a.m.
As expression of sympathy in memory of Eleanor may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
