Moir, Ellen Janet

Ellen Janet Moir beloved wife of Rory and loving mother of Andrew and Alex passed away on Sunday, August 3, 2008 at the age of 52 years. Except for five of her early years, Ellen lived in Calgary and was educated through the CBE and the U of C. Subsequently she truly enjoyed her years working as a geologist at Canadian Hunter. This was followed by even greater rewards in the years that she spent raising her sons and being with her family. She was involved in parent councils at the elementary and junior high levels; most recently she took great satisfaction from chairing the F.E. Osborne Parent Council. Ellen was a very active person who loved to spend time running, swimming, golfing, hiking, skiing and taking long walks through the Bow River Valley. She was enriched by her involvement in Toastmasters and her book club. Ellen’s kind spirit, gentle nature and ever ready sense of humour touched us all. She will be missed more than can be expressed. A special place in her heart was the family cabin at Sylvan Lake, where she spent many happy times with her family and friends. Besides her loving husband Rory and her sons Andrew and Alex, Ellen is survived by her sisters Judy (Ric) Noble and their daughters Melanie and Hollis; Susan (Bob) Hollinshead and their children Lawrence (Maureen), Katie and Sara; and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Doug and Gill Moir, of Aberdeen, Scotland. Ellen was predeceased by her parents Bill and Marg Clow. A Celebration of Ellen’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.) on Sunday, August 10, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial tributes to the William and Ellen Clow Prize in Geology may be made by phone (Kathleen Sprecht 403-220-4399) or by cheque made out to the University of Calgary, William and Ellen Clow Prize in Geology, c/o U of C Central Development Office, 2500 University Drive N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1N4.
