FRASER

FRASER (Nee: Neilson) “We Who Loved You, Sadly Miss You” It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Eleanor Elizabeth Fraser on Friday, February 27, 2009 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital at the age of 88 years. She leaves to mourn her loss; her loving son Neil (Dyan) and her daughter Violet both of California, USA. Her memory will also be cherished by her two sisters: Hilda and Rose (George) all of Red Deer as well as her three brothers: Don (Ruby) of Olds, AB, Paul (Joyce) of Castor, AB, Dick (Joan) of Parksville, BC. She will also be dearly missed by numerous nieces and nephews. Eleanor was predeceased by her first husband, Robert Fawcett (1985) as well as her second husband, Robert Fraser (1993). She was also predeceased by her two sisters: Mabel and Mamie and her two brothers Alfred and Morten. Eleanor was born in Halkirk, AB to Christian and Mabel Neilson, she was the third oldest in a large family of ten: Mamie (Georgina Larson), Morten, Eleanor, Donald, Paul, Hilda (Fawcett), Alfred, Richard, Rose (High) and Mabel (Rowland). She worked hard on the family farm as a young girl, a trait that would follow her throughout her life. Eleanor and her husband Robert (Bob) Fawcett moved from their Castor farm to Red Deer at the age of 39 and she took her Psych Nursing Training at ASH (Michener Centre) where she worked for many years until her retirement. She then enjoyed her gardening and unique ideas in her yards with flowers, especially her begonias. Eleanor was involved in her church and volunteered with the Crisis Line. At the age of 86 she decided she needed another challenge so she purchased her computer and enjoyed emailing her many friends and family members.
