ARSENEAULT; Ella Lillian
January 14, 1926 ~ April 16, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother. Born in Ratcliffe, Saskatchewan in 1926 she grew up on the farm with five siblings. She became a school teacher until she met her husband Stan and they started married life in Radville, SK, having three children; Warren, Marcella and Nancy. The family relocated to Abbotsford, BC in the late 60’s. Ella found herself single in the 70’s and started her own catering business at the Skyline Club located at the Abbotsford Airport. She remained a very active part of the community, catering to weddings, graduations and to the club’s membership. Ella remarried Norman Arseneault and had many happy years in Abbotsford. She loved playing Bingo and was always up for a game of cards. The last decade she resided at the Menno Home and Cottage facility in Abbotsford. Her last year was spent in the Dr. Andrew Pavillion in Summerland, BC which placed her close to family members. She was given excellent care at these facilities and we would like to sincerely thank the staff for their loving care and kindness. She was blessed with many grandchildren and great grandchildren. At Ella’s request there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the South Okanagan, Similkameen Medical Foundation, at the Dr. Andrew Pavilion Activity Department, 12815 Atkinson Road, Summerland, BC V0H 1Z0.
