Born September 3, 1918 in Bedford, Nova Scotia – God’s country: the hub of the universe and passed away on October 27, 2012. Eleanor was the fourth of seven children born to Rita and Edward Thompson. She moved to Ottawa in 1939 and married the late Cecil H. T. Lowe in 1942. Loving mother of Pat Graham, Heather Lalonde and Peter. Dear Nana of Jennifer, Brian, Shannon, Katie and Kimberley and great-grandmother of Delani, Liam, Finn and Elliott. Beloved sister of the late Lucille, the late Ruth, Jean, Audrey, Ted and Heather. Special aunt of many nieces and nephews. When God created our mother, the mold was broken. Eleanor was a ray of sunshine to everyone who knew her. We will miss her beautiful smile, gentle ways, wise counsel and calming nature. Many thanks to the staff of Beech Court at Madonna L.T.C. for their unwavering, tender care of our Nana.
