Obituary for Elenor Waack

Elenor Waack
WAACK, Elenor
Dec 28, 1936 – July 16, 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Elenor. Her energy and good nature touched the hearts of those who knew her. Elenor passed away peacefully on July 16th after a lengthy illness. She was predeceased by her husband Henry and her brothers Howard and Roy. Survived by her sons Douglas, Philip (Jodie), Cliff (Barb), Robert (Aida), Richard (Cheri), and Henry Jr. (Andrea); her many grandchildren (Steve, Natasha, Kristian, Sam, Danica, Sydney, Anna and Kyla). Elenor grew up in Standard, Alberta and met Henry Sr. at Mount Royal College. They married in 1957. Elenor lived a quiet life to the rhythms of the Alberta seasons; That is, until her six sons came along. In 1970, she moved the family to New Westminster from Lethbridge, with the anticipation that a new job for her husband at Douglas College would provide a better life for the family. Elenor soon found a job at the “Bella Coola” room cafeteria at Lougheed Mall. It was during that time when she nearly lost her life to a horrific accident. During her eight months in hospital, she appeared to be on some kind of quest; survive and inspire. During her hospital stay, she was often struck by the musings of life. Two things moved us at that time: her will to not only live but to live a life with a higher purpose. Elenor started a new chapter in life, one that modelled her conviction that “through hard work and devotion, we can achieve anything”. With dignity, she returned home with a new lease on life; perhaps to calm her son’s fears. After Elenor recovered, she worked many years at Saint Mary’s Hospital until her retirement. While Elenor may have left this earthly realm; she is looking down wishing us love and happiness. You are forever in our hearts. The family would like to thank the “Belvedere” home for their love and care of our loving mother, Elenor. A private celebration of life will be held by the family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the “Henry Waack Scholarship Fund”. Please send donations to: The Douglas College Foundation, David Lam Campus, 1250 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam BC V3B 7X3
