In her spare time, Eleanor was a bookkeeper for several small businesses. She enjoyed curling, bowling, snowmobiling and spending time with family and friends at the summer cottage at Rhoddy’s Bay. In her latter years, after moving from Castleford to their new home in Arnprior, she spent many wonderful occasions with her friends and family on the deck and in the pool.
