CARPENTER, Elinor Faith

Posted: September 6th, 2022


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of ELINOR FAITH CARPENTER on Saturday, September 3, 2022 at the age of 81 years after an exhaustive battle with cancer.

Elinor left behind her daughter Stacey, son Scott, three granddaughters Ashton, Skye, Shyla and her great-grandson Haedon.

Elinor was the strongest woman we knew. Friends and family saw her as the person to go to for any kind of advice, for a good laugh and a quick dose of reality (she never held back in giving her opinion, which was usually right). Elinor was always working on some new quilting project. She made sure that everyone in her immediate family had a beautiful piece of her quilting art to keep. She also was an amazing mentor and teacher to other quilters. Her love of quilting and knack for teaching brought amazing women into a close-knit quilting club. Mom loved the women in this group and cherished her time with them. Mom had many amazing friends (too numerous to mention) who were a great part of her life. You all meant so much to her and we thank you for the love and support you showed her. Please have a glass a wine in her honor (no wine is before its time! Is what she used to say)! Special thanks to Dr. Walsh, Denise, the palliative team, the Jack Ady Cancer Centre, and homecare for their heartfelt care.

At Elinor’s request there will be no Funeral Service. Donations can be made in Elinor’s name to the Jack Ady Cancer Centre – 960 19th St. S., Lethbridge, AB T1J 1W5.
