1935 ~ 2018

Eleanor Romaniuk of Medicine Hat, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully on January 19th, 2018 surrounded by her family at the age of 82 years old. She fought a hard battle right until the end but did so with unbelievable strength, courage and dignity. Eleanor leaves to cherish her memory her loving and devoted husband, Maurice Romaniuk; her five children: Brian (Kathy) Romaniuk, Barbara (Bob) Clark, Maryanne (Yvon) Leblanc, Kevin (Christine) Romaniuk, and Marris (Dawn) Romaniuk.

Eleanor was born on March 21st, 1935 in Rama, Saskatchewan and was raised by her grandparents on their farm where she developed her love for tending to gardens and cooking. She faced many hardships in her life but she always persevered with grace and beauty. Her greatest success was by far her family and she loved them fiercely. Eleanor will be remembered for having a giggle that was contagious, a smile that was enchanting, a hug that made the world melt away, and an empowering love. This is a time of celebration, a celebration of her amazing life that was lived to the fullest and a celebration of her newest adventures as an angel.
