ELEANOR MARION PLUCHINSKI
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved sister, aunt and friend, Eleanor Marion Pluchinski on January 6, 2016
Eleanor was born April 19, 1948 to Hedwig (Howke) and Ernest Pluchinski. She grew up in Whitemouth before the family moved to Winnipeg in 1953; settling in East Kildonan. Eleanor attended Miles Macdonell Collegiate, graduating in 1964. After graduation, Eleanor was employed by the Winnipeg School Division #1, retiring in 1990 after 25 years of dedicated service.
Eleanor was predeceased by her parents and baby brother Alfred. She is sadly missed by her sisters, Dolores (Ewald) Knopf, Margaret (Henry) Splett and Valerie (Alvin) Pescitelli; brother Harvey (Emilie) as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Eleanor’s life was held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, January 22, 2016 in the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 603 Wellington Crescent. Following a reception, her ashes were interred in Glen Eden Memorial Gardens, Garden of Everlasting Life.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of choice.

We were very sad to hear of Eleanor's passing.
Sorry we could not be there to offer our condolences in person, but pleased that Helen (Len) Turcotte and Doreen Forbister, my sisters, were able to attend and speak with you and represent the family for us. We have lived in Kelowna BC since 2004.
Sending our sincere sympathy to all of Eleanor's family. You will miss her very much.

I have several fond memories of when auntie Eleanor lived with my grandparents. My brother and I were small children and we would come over to stay during the summer holidays . We would play board games, do puzzles or take long walks together.

I was surprised and saddened to hear of my cousin's death and at a relatively young age.
My sincere condolences to the rest of the family in Winnipeg. God's peace and comfort be with you.
