Eleanor Margaret Beaton
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Eleanor M. Beaton, 85 years, of Springhill, on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 in the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre. Born in Springhill, she was a daughter of the late Tom and Mary (Marshall) Raper.
Eleanor had worked at Oxford Frozen Foods for over twenty-five years. Always a life of the party, she liked to make people laugh. She was very social and made friends wherever she went. She was a member of the Pioneers Club, the Springhill Seniors Citizens Recreation Centre, and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Springhill Fire Department. She enjoyed a good game of cards, trips to the casino with her sisters as well as traveling to Montreal and Ontario each year.
She was a devoted and caring mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
Eleanor will be dearly missed by her daughters, Joanne White, Springhill, and Mary-Lynn (Teddy Merrey) Hurley, Salt Springs, NS; her sons, David Beaton, Halifax, and Tom (Micheline) Beaton, Upper Economy, NS; grandchildren, April, Tammy, Bill, Angela, Matt, Brad, Jason, Jeremy, Breonna, Reganne, and Callan; great grandchildren, Zack, Neela, Jacob, Kailyn, Connor, Garrett, Ainsley, Tessa, Miranda, Samantha, and Isaac; sisters, Georgie (George) Godfrey, and Rosanna Stonehouse; a brother, Tom (Georgina); a sister-in-law, Doris Beaton; a daughter-in-law, Susan Smith, many nieces and nephews and a very special friend, Marilyn Ward.
Besides her parents she was predeceased by her husband Tom in 2009 and a brother-in law, Orrie Stonehouse in 2014.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of A H Brown Funeral Home, 5 McFarlane Street, Springhill, (902 597 2361) from where a time of visitation will be held from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm on Saturday, February 10, 2018.
