Eleanor was born on July 8th, 1936 at the Swift Current Union Hospital. She grew up living on a farm in the Stewart Valley district and attended Vendetta school until she went to Swift Current to finish her high school. She completed her secretarial business course in Swift Current then started her career at the Bank of Montreal and Great West Auto Electric. Throughout the years she also worked at the Prairie Pioneer Lodge, Home Care, and the Southwest Crisis Centre. Eleanor was involved with National Farmers Union, Cantuar Busy Bees and secretary/treasurer for the Cantuar Hall board. She loved talking politics, being especially passionate when it came to the NDP. She enjoyed traveling to various locations in Saskatchewan, Canada, USA and abroad. Eleanor married Davie Wotherspoon on April 12, 1957 at the First United Church. They operated an organic cattle farm. Many weekends were spent socializing with friends, neighbors and family whether it be over a cup of coffee or going dancing. They had 4 children: Debbie, Darrell, Maureen & Janice. Mom was involved with our activities of sports, music lessons & 4H. She carried this interest on with all of her grandchildren as well. Her door was always open to nieces, nephews, grandchildren as well as kids in the neighborhood. Her friends were an important part of her life. Together they enjoyed many activities such as line dancing, painting, card playing, going to garage sales & out for lunches. As Mom once wrote "We live in the best part of the world & the best neighbourhood; that's a lot to be thankful for." In memory of Eleanor, donations may be made to the Cantuar Community Hall - Box 1331, Swift Current, S9H 3X4 or The National Farmers Union, 2717 Wentz Ave. Saskatoon, Sask. S7K 4B6.
