Eleanor Piche Obituary

Eleanor  Piche
Mrs. Eleanor Madeline Piche, age 76 passed away with her family and her beloved dog Rambo by her side on March 22, 2015.  Born on December 14, 1938 in Kenora, Ontario, she attended school in St. Adolphe, Manitoba and Lafleche, Saskatchewan.  When she returned to Kenora she met her husband and together they raised 3 children.  Family was important to her and she enjoyed spending her time camping and fishing with them.  She loved nature and the outdoors.  You would often see her at the window of her home watching the hummingbirds or the deer.  She had a soft spot for animals and the underprivileged.  There was always a pet in her house and each year at Christmas she would send a card telling you about the goat, chicken, cow or rabbit she had purchased in your name for those who didn’t have.  She had many talents.  She enjoyed singing and was a member of St. Joseph’s Church Choir.  She also enjoyed painting and was very good at it. When she wintered in Texas she joined a paint class and rarely missed herThursday mornings socializing and creating a new piece of art.  A good seamstress, she used that skill later in life when she took up quilting and spent a lot of time doing that with her sister and niece.  Left with her strength and memories, she is survived by her husband of 55 years, Edouard Piche, children, Donna-Rae Stevens (Kent), Denise Singleton, Leslie Piche (Tammi), grandchildren, Rejeanne, Larissa, Myles, Rikki, Steven and Lindsay, four great- grandchildren, sister Carol Markham, two brothers, Edmond Gagnon and Edward Gagnon, several nieces, nephews and special friends who all had a place in her heart.  Predeceased by her mother, father, 2 brothers and 6 sisters.
Cremation has taken place and a private Celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
We would like to thank the “Angels in Scrubs” at the DRHC who treated Eleanor and her family with care, compassion, respect and dignity.  No words can describe how grateful we are.

In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations may be made to the Dryden Regional Health Centre Palliative Care Unit or the Second Chance Animal Shelter through the Dryden Community Funeral Home 249 Grand Trunk Ave., Dryden, ON P8N 2X3
