Eleanor Ruth Gillen


We regret to announce the death of Eleanor Ruth Gillen at her Lumby home on December 23, 2004, at the age of 78 years. She had been a resident of Lumby for over 35 years, and will be remember by many as a longtime postal employee at the Lumby Post Office. She was also a very active member of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Lumby legion and a dedicated golfer at Cherryville Golf Course. Eleanor was predeceased by her husband, James, in 1998 and by son, Norman, in 1993. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remember by son Jerry of Lumby and daughters Janet (Adrian) Fitzpatrick of Lumby and Bonny (Mark) Darby of Surrey, and grandchildren Chris, Warren, Nicole, Holly and Jessica. She is also survived by sisters Jean (Mel) Spooner and Mae Donner and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members. Cremation will be followed by a gathering to celebrate her life, to be held in the Lumby Legion Hall on Thursday, December 30, commencing at 12:00 Noon.
