In Loving Memory ~
It is with sadness we announce the passing of Eleanor Ann Chapman nee Peacock on February 27, 2022. Eleanor was a wife, mother, daughter, sister, educator, and enthusiastic thespian.
She was born at Murry Corner New Brunswick the 4th child of a farming family. As a young woman while teaching in Quebec she met the love of her life Bill Chapman and was married for 34 happy years until Bill’s death in 1996.
Eleanor was also predeceased by their daughter Helen (1988).
Eleanor loved Nanaimo after moving there in 1972 and was always interested in the history of the area. Eleanor substitute taught throughout the Nanaimo/ Ladysmith school district. She often spoke of acting with a local group in Music Man.
Eleanor and Bill were long time members of Brechin United Church. They were both very active with Compassionate Friends after the death of their daughter.
Left to mourn Eleanor are her two sons, Sam (Joan) and Alan and her honorary daughter Nancy (Marty). She is also mourned by her long-time companion Don and many friends who were touched by her love.
We would like to especially thank Dr. Sims, the people of Keeping House and many other people in the medical community who provided such good care.
