June 4, 1934 – January 20, 2011
Eleanor Zdanowicz, beloved wife of Edward Zdanowicz of Calgary, suddenly passed away at home on Thursday, January 20, 2011 at the age of 76 years.
Eleanor was born in Montreal, Quebec and moved with her husband, children and mother (Nellie Olszeski) to Calgary in 1973. Eleanor loved her family, friends, shopping and travelling (in that order).
Upon the passing of her wonderful husband, Edward in 2001, she continued with their dreams of travelling and enjoying good food, good shopping and good times. Her son Fred was a constant, dedicated live-in and travelling companion to her. Her daughter Diane was her unwavering shopping partner. Her son-in-law Reg always made her smile.
Eleanor is survived by her loving family, son Fred, daughter Diane and son-in-law Reg Cameron.
As Eleanor wished, a private family service will be held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. The family would like to thank Foothills Medical Centre Special Services Unit 46 for the wonderful care they gave her in what turned out to be her last few days. They would also like to thank all the wonderful people at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and Rockyview General Hospital for their outstanding care and compassion over the past 3 years.
