ELEANOR MARY KATCHMER July 9, 1940 – March 29, 2024
Eleanor Katchmer of Calgary, AB, peacefully passed away on Friday, March 29, 2024, at the age of 83 years.

Eleanor was born on the Kotelko family farm near Hafford, SK, on July 9, 1940. She lived in Saskatoon, SK, Medicine Hat, AB, and Medan, Indonesia, before moving to Calgary in 1989 to be near her children. She enjoyed a career in professional administration at Mount Royal University for many years before retiring. Retirement afforded her the opportunity to indulge in hobbies such as working on puzzles, gardening, playing cards, reading, and enjoying quality time with her family. She also remained an avid supporter of her beloved Edmonton Oilers hockey team. Eleanor loved simple family gatherings and truly enjoyed relaxing at the lake. At home, she was a fantastic cook and a warm, gracious hostess. She will be fondly remembered for her sincere kindness and heartfelt compassion for both people and animals.

Eleanor is survived by her children, Lisa (Jeff) Glover, Camille Rae, and Jason (Karen) Katchmer; and her grandchildren, Maxwell, Sebastian, Annie, Aaron, and Justin. She is also survived by her sisters, Vera Fobel and Nancy (Ed) Bobick.

Eleanor was predeceased by her parents, Alex and Katherine Kotelko; her brother Mike Kotelko, and her brother-in-law Edwin Fobel.

A Celebration of Eleanor’s Life will be held at a later date.
