GRAYSON, Eleanor




A gentle wind blew across the land
Reaching out to take a hand
For on the winds the Angels came
Calling out a loved one’s name.
Left to grieve the children’s tears
Loving memories of all the years
Of joy and love, a life well spent
But now to God a mother’s sent
On Angel’s wings, a heavenly flight
The journey home, toward the light
To those who weep, a life is gone
But in God’s love, it’s but the dawn.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and Great Great Grandmother, Eleanor (Ellie), Monday January 28, at 102 years old.

She was born and raised in the Meyronne, Kincaid area. Eleanor is predeceased by her parents Clarence and Mabel Johnson; sister Marjorie Wilson; her first husband Doug Sangster; her second husband William (Bill) Grayson; three sons-in-law Jack Angus, Wayne Foord and Alex Bell. She leaves to mourn her five daughters Karen Bell, Faye Angus (Ed Windsor), Judy Foord, Twyla Rail (Ed), Debbie McKinnon; ten grandchildren, Terry Dell, Jodi Stork, Michael Bell, Richard Angus, Robert Angus, Patti Shirkey, Jackie Foord, Joseph Rail, Colin Rail, Carly McKinnon; nineteen great grandchildren and eight great great grandchildren as well as several nieces and nephews. Friends were always welcome in our house as we grew up and harmonizing while doing daily tasks with her girls was a must. The smell of homemade bread, potato soup and the sound of Elvis Presley will always be a memory with us and many of our friends. Mom we miss you greatly. The family would like to send our deepest gratitude to the staff of Providence Place for the excellent care Mom has received for the past 10 years. She was truly fond of a great many caregivers over that period and many of them became like family to all of us. A Private Family Service will be held at a later date. Those wishing to leave an expression of sympathy in memory of Eleanor may do so with the Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7N7 or Providence Place Auxiliary, 100 Second Ave. NE Moose Jaw, SK S6H 1B8. In living memory of Eleanor, a memorial planting will be made by Jones - Parkview Funeral Services. Please sign the memorial register at website: or
