TIFFIN o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-06-30 published
BESEN, Eleanor Shirley (née WOLFE)
Died peacefully at her home in Toronto on Thursday, June 28, 2007, following a courageous and graceful struggle with cancer, which defeated her body, but never her spirit or sense of humour. Born in Toronto on January 1, 1924. She is predeceased by parents Maurice and Tillie WOLFE, and brothers Ray, Leonard, Jack, and Harvey. She is survived by her adoring immediate family, daughters Joan, and Ellen BESEN, and Ellen's companion Steve BARR, grand_son Sunny THRASHER, and granddaughter-in-law Bree TIFFIN, granddaughter Tamar LIPSEY, and by her long time dear companion, Harold KELSALL. She is remembered lovingly by sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members, as well as the innumerable Friends whose lives she so deeply touched. The family wants to give special thanks to Eleanor's caregiver, Cynthia SEGARRA, who did so much to make an unbearable situation bearable not only for Eleanor but for the family, and to Fatima PEREIRA, without whose soup and muffins a difficult situation would have been much worse. Also thanks to Lisa and Chedita. Eleanor was a graduate of the University of Toronto in the field of Occupational Therapy. She was a fine painter, specializing in watercolours. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, and a member of the Ontario Society of Watercolorists and the Arts and Letters Club. She was a folk dancer, a line dancer, a belly dancer, and a world traveller. She had an astounding eye for beauty, colour and proportion, and this wonderful ability was evident in every part of her life and made the lives of everyone who knew her richer and more beautiful. She will be missed. The family would like to thank the Temmy Latner Centre, Doctors MEUSER, and RIEGER, and nurses Dusanka, Richard, and May for the wonderful palliative care which they provided. At Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Ave., W., (3 lights west of Dufferin), for service on Sunday, July 1st at 11: 30 a.m. Interment Beth Tzedec Memorial Park. Shiva 1 Concord Place, Suite 1404. Memorial donations may be made to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care at 416-586-4800.
