Our beloved Mother passed away enveloped by the love and comfort of her family at Southlake Regional Health Centre, Newmarket. Dearly loved wife of the late Alvin William Lennox (1996). A caring, beautiful and loving mother with a wonderful sense of humour to Carole (2013), Margo (Glen), Michael (Arlene) and Julie (Walt). Adored grandmother of Jennifer, Stephanie, Andrew (Kim), William, Joshua, Mara, Megan, Walter and Wells, Patricia and Gord. Great Grandmother of Laura, Sarah, Sam, Taylor, Christian, Averee, Michael, Jamie and Jason. Loving sister of Harry Hill, George (Irene) Hill, Lily (Bill) Pollard, and Marjorie Hill all predeceased.
She was the heart of our family and an inspiration to all she met. Her youthful spirit, good nature and amazing whistling ability will be missed but cherished in our hearts forever. Mom took great pleasure from the simple things in life—time spent with family, her gardens, crossword puzzles (she was a genius), feeding her birdies and squirrels, scrabble games and baking the best brownies in the world. We are grateful for the compassionate care that our mother received in the CVICU. Family and friends will be received for visitation at Mangan Funeral Home (705-426-5777), 332 Osborne Street, Beaverton on Thursday May 9th, 2013 from 7 – 9pm. A celebration of Ellen’s life will be held at Beacan Presbyterian Church, 413 Simcoe Street, Beaverton on Friday May 10th at 1:00pm. Interment to follow at the Old Stone Church, 1490 Regional Road 15, Beaverton. Reception to follow at Beacan Presbyterian Church.
