Thank you to all who were able to make it to the Life Celebration in Ottawa and Burial & Reception in Toronto. Both were well attended and were beautiful tributes to Eleanor. A big thank you to those who helped plan and carry out the services and receptions. A special thanks to Rev. Pierre Allard, Jan Anderson, & Rev. Maryanne Turcott (Ottawa service), and the Bethany Baptist Women (Ottawa reception); Rev. John Torrance (Toronto service), and Charles & GR Radford (Toronto reception.)
My family and I deeply appreciate all the visits, calls, cards, emails, and notes posted on this website. It has been very helpful to us, as it helps us to remember the real Elli before her decline. We’ve been genuinely touched and felt supported by your thoughts and prayers.
Blessings to you all,
Ed and Family
Reverend Eleanor Pollitt (nee Colsell) (1934-2013)
Loved and loving wife of Ed Pollitt, and children, Sharon (deceased), David (Yenni), Chris (Michelle). Sister to Phyllis (Bud). Beloved Aunt of Jan, John and Jeff and families. Her many friends will miss her dearly. She was a loving and social woman who brought people together and helped everyone feel welcome. She lived her life with flare and gusto. Her legacy will live on through the groups she started in her compassion for helping others. In lieu of flowers, please donate to justequipping.org.
