Eleanor Loewen (nee Milner)
Eleanor Loewen (nee Milner) passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus on December 26, 2017.
Eleanor was born in Regina, Saskatchewan at the beginning of the Great Depression on December 15, 1929. Her family moved to Swan River, Manitoba, where she and her 7 siblings all helped with farm chores while their father pastored a small church.
Eleanor was predeceased by (parents) Adolph and Martha Milner, (brothers) John and Bert Milner, (sisters) Dorothy and Gerry, and many friends with whom she shared her life.
Eleanor is survived by her husband of 66 years (Walter), sons (Bill, Ron, Dave, and Ed), 1 brother (Lawrence), and 2 sisters (Thea and Winnie). She leaves 14 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
At the age of 9, Eleanor accepted the Lord Jesus as her Saviour, and her life demonstrated ever-increasing faith in Him till her death.
While raising a family of 4 boys, Eleanor supported her husband in the development of a rapidly growing business.
Eleanor was known to most as a quiet, respectable, and peaceful woman, but her family and close friends enjoyed her playful side. She was well-travelled (30 countries) and well-read (especially the Bible and Christian books). Other defining traits included frugality, generosity, compassion, integrity, and intuition.
As a lover of the outdoors, she helped to develop a Christian retreat facility so others could be spiritually refreshed while enjoying God’s creation. Her influence for God’s Kingdom will continue to be felt as a result of her work with her church family, Focus on the Family, and Teen Challenge, and the establishment of a charitable foundation to support Christian causes.
A private interment will be conducted at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens in Winnipeg. A public memorial service will be held in spring (date and venue to be determined).
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Gideons.
