In Loving Memory
Passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at the age of 78, in her sleep, in her own bed, and in her own house, just the way she would have wished. Predeceased by her parents Gerald and Iris Simmons (1986) and her only sibling Greg (2018). She will be sorely missed by her partner of 57 years, Robert (Bob) Montgomery, her children Erin and Neil, and grandchildren Bennet, Catherine, Sebastian, and Ella. Elinor was a longtime employee and volunteer of the Ottawa Public Library, Hazeldean and Beaverbrook branches. Her passion for local history was instrumental in the establishment of The Kanata Room at the Beaverbrook Branch. A gathering of friends, neighbours, and relatives will be held at Kelly Funeral Home – Kanata Chapel, 580 Eagleson Rd., from 6 pm to 9 pm, on Friday, October 19 for a celebration of Elinor’s life. Arrangements are being made for a burial service with family, to be held at the Victoria Cemetery, Tweed, Ontario. Donations in lieu of flowers could be made to the Ottawa Public Library.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Elinor Montgomery 2018.
