In Loving Memory ~

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Eleanor Tardi at the North Okanagan Hospice House on February 10th with family at her side, after a hard fought and courageous battle with cancer.

She will be lovingly remembered and missed by her six children, Janice (Dennis) Zazula, Karen (Michael) Grant, Robert (Michele), Mark (LeeAnn), Ronald (Barbara), Gary (Linda), her ten grandchildren Kevin (Karrie) Zazula, Jennifer (Wendell) Owen, Leanne (Jesse) Duss, Stacey (Russ) Mensik, Michelle (Nick) Slovack, Steven Grant, Brendon (Lisa) Tardi, Kristin (Jesse) Smith, Jonathan Tardi, Chantelle Tardi, and nineteen great-grandchildren who she lovingly adored and called her GiGi, her siblings Peter Innes, John Innes and numerous family members and friends.

Eleanor was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba and moved to St. Pierre, Manitoba, Thompson, Manitoba and Calgary, Alberta before relocating to Vernon BC in 1986 and to Armstrong in 2017.

Eleanor was predeceased by the love of her life and husband of 63 years Bob, her parents David and Leonna Innes, her sisters June Black and Doreen Murray.

Eleanor's first love was her family, but she also enjoyed her longtime career in Sales & Marketing with Prestige Hotels & Resorts, where she had the opportunity to travel and make many longtime friends.

A very special thank you to Dr. Gilhooly, the amazing and caring staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital Cancer Clinic, Ambulatory Care, and North Okanagan Hospice House.

For those wishing to do so, please donate to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Cancer Centre or the North Okanagan Hospice Society.

Services for Eleanor will be Prayers at 7:00 pm March 15th and a Funeral Mass and Service at 2:00 pm March 16th at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church, 10102 Middleton Drive, Coldstream BC.

A Celebration of Life for family and friends will follow to celebrate Eleanor (and Bob who passed during Covid) at the Prestige Vernon Lodge from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.
