Mrs. Eleonore Ursula Grafe, beloved wife of Mr. Arnold Grafe, passed away at Points West Living, Red Deer on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at the age of 81 years.
We little knew that day, God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same, It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories; your love is still our Guide. And although we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, this chain will link again.
Eleonore was loved by so many and well known locally, Provincially and Federally for her involvement in Red Deer, working thirty-five years at Deer Home (Michener Center), St. John’s Ambulance Brigade, a Member of the Order of the Royal Purple, and especially with the Alberta Liberal Party and her love of the theatre, as a member of CAT, as well as a huge lover of her doggies and stray cats.

She will also be sadly missed by her brother, Peter Schmidt and her sister, Christianne Jonas; as well as two nieces, one nephew and a multitude of friends.

Pam and Mike and Kurt and Troy, Susan and family, and Mr. Grafe: I’m so very sorry your beloved Wife, Mom and Grandmom has passed on. She will be missed.
Eleonore was always friendly and welcoming toward me whenever I saw her. She took time to come over to me for a hug and an enthusiastic greeting. She always asked me about my life and how I was doing. Eleonore had a big, beautiful smile which could light up a room. Her eyes were twinkly and smiley and full of curiosity and interest in everything around her. Frequently, Eleonore spoke of family and it was clear how proud she was and how much she loved all of you.
I know your Wife, Mom, and Grandmom’s loss will be devastating for all of you. Eleonore, and all of you, are in my thoughts, and I’m sending you love and comfort.
