"BAX" 2001 Obituary


BAXTER o@ca.on.manitoulin.howland.little_current.manitoulin_expositor 2001-04-25 published
Eleanor Kingsborough BAXTER (Retired nurse Hospital for Sick Children.) Peacefully after a brief illness at the Sunnybrook Hospital on Saturday, April 14th, 2001. Eleanor, beloved daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. George BAXTER, (Little Current, Manitoulin Island). Dear sister of Mary (Edmonton), and the late Ruth CALDWELL (Bracebridge, Ontario.) Granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John G. KINGSBOROUGH (Manitoulin Island). Special aunt of Jim CALDWELL and the late Gordon CALDWELL, great aunt of Alan and Paul CALDWELL (Toronto).
Eleanor came to Toronto from Little Current in 1930, to study nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children. She will be remembered for her dedication to her nursing profession, working at Hospital for Sick Children for most of her nursing career, beginning in 1933, with the exception of a two year period spent at the Children's Hospital on Vancouver Island. While at Hospital for Sick Children, she was head nurse in the Out Patient Department, Director at the Thistletown Branch of the Hospital. In her later years, she was in the Nursing Administration Office. Many lifelong Friendships were established here.
In her quiet way, she was steadfast and loyal, a person with many interests, an avid collector, always ready to share her knowledge. She enjoyed travelling, especially to Stockholm and Baffin Island. "A gentle, but strong person. Asking very little, giving abundantly of herself."
A service of remembrance was held on Saturday, April 21 in the chapel at Central Park Lodge in Toronto. Eleanor was a resident there for the past few years. Interment will take place at a later date in a family plot, Little Current, Manitoulin Island.

-In loving memory of dear parents, grandparents, mother-in-law, father-in-law, Tom, who passed away September 13, 1953 and Annie, who passed away May 14, They walk with us down quiet paths,
And speak in wind and rain
For the magic power of memory,
Gives them back to us again.
Tenderly, we treasure the past,
With memories that will always last.
And when we cease to think of you,
Will be when God has called us too.
-Sadly missed by son Max, also son Hugh and daughter-in-law Grace and grandchildren, David, Barry and Bonnie Sue.
