Obituary of Eleanor Marie Dixon

After a brief illness, Eleanor Marie peacefully passed away with all the love of her family by her side on Sunday, November 27, 2022 at the age of 81. She leaves behind her husband and best friend of 60 years, Roy, and their children Kelly (Glen) Purgavie, Jacki (Daniel) Leblanc, Brian (Kathryn) Dixon, Mary Jane (Brian) Schwarz and her beloved dog, Beans. She will sadly be missed by her dear sister and lifelong friend, Dori (late Ray) Schooley and her brother Harry (Lois) Roe. She will be fondly remembered as Nanny to her 10 grandchildren: Alexandra (Christopher), Liam, Emily, Madeline, Isaac, Sophia, Olivia, Nicole, Ella and Ben. She will be missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Eleanor had a passion and love for life whether she was gardening, enjoying her animals, socializing with friends or playing tennis. At 19, she trained as a nurse and worked professionally for a short period of time before dedicating her life to being a mother and homemaker. Ellie will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, warm heart and welcoming personality.

In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life is planned for the spring. Arrangements are entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Niagara SPCA - Welland location in Eleanor's memory.

When I think of you Aunty, the words “welcome and accepted” come to mind, you always had a way of making me feel unconditionally loved. Aunty it was in your home as a young boy that I witnessed what selfless service to others with gratitude looked like, always looking out for others, always so gracious and kind, Uncle Roy and family we love you,
