GREEN, Eleanor Margaretta (nee Ferner; formerly Lafleur) - Passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at Grand River Hospital.
Last one standing, she outlived all of her family members at the ripe ol' age of 90! What a life she lived: mother, grandmother, GG, special auntie, caregiver, golfer-extraordinaire (snagging 3 hole-in-ones), wicked bridge and game player, avid shopper and clothes-horse with a flair for fashion.
A survivor of the great depression, she saw the birth of colour TV, shopping malls, computers and cellphones (neither which she could understand). Queen of the jigsaw puzzles, seamstress and made the best darn oatmeal cookies in the world!
She is survived by her children: Yvette Fulton (Gerry Lawrence), Joseph Lafleur (Paula Ferreira), Michele (Randy) Brubacher; step-daughters: Sandy (Stephen) Glibota, Donna (Dave) Gojmerac. Grandchildren: Jamie (Joanne) and Ryan (Ashley) Fulton, Madeleine and Aline Lafleur; step-grandchildren: Alexandra Young, Matthew (Lisanne) and David Glibota, Holly and Rachel Gojmerac. Great-Grandmother (GG) to: Tianna, Caleb, Cole, Darrius, Miya and Koen.
Predeceased by her son Guy Paul, first husband, Joseph Zenon (Zeke) Lafleur and her second husband, John Edward Green.
Eleanor's family will receive relatives and friends from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. with prayers at 8:45 p.m. on Monday August 6, 2018 at Henry Walser funeral home, Kitchener. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes, 173 Lourdes St. W., Waterloo N2L 1N5 on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Interment at Woodland Cemetery.
