Vancouver Canucks, Cocker Spaniel "Buddy", sailing, family, food and wine.
Eleanor was a Vancouverite for most of her life. She was born in Chilliwack, grew up in the Lower Mainland and was dedicated to her work in the corporate world in Vancouver, including EXPO 86 where she made many lifelong friends. She lost a brief, but courageous battle with the complications of recently diagnosed cancer. Eleanor, the daughter of Agnes Penner and Henry Funk (predeceased), was the second youngest of twelve children so it is no surprise that family was a big part of Eleanor’s life. She will be missed dearly by her large extended family and her friends.
Eleanor was a very enthusiastic Vancouver Canucks fan, enjoyed sailing when the winds were up and was a keen soccer player when she was younger. Eleanor and her Cocker Spaniel “Buddy” were great pals for many years.
Family and friends will gather to celebrate Eleanor’s life on Saturday, 2016 January 16th at 1:00 pm. at the Creekside Community Recreation Centre, 1 Athletes Way, Vancouver, BC.

Miss you 😘 so much! My confidant, I need to talk to you. No one can ever take your place. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 2 years! I wish you could have met Orchid & Allie. You would have loved these little girls, my canine companions, and they would have loved you.

Sorry I missed your birthday, but I think of you often, and remember the good times we spent together. I take comfort in knowing you are in a good place, hopefully with Buddy, and maybe Amber.

You have been in my heart for the past week as your birthday approached and I am remembering the happy birthdays we shared together but the deep sadness lingers. I hope that you are dancing with the angels and your heart is full of love for all who are thinking about you. Love you forever.
