Moses, Eleanor, It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother, Eleanor Eudora (nee Winter) Moses, of Halifax, age 86, on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at the QEII hospital in Halifax. Eleanor was born April 12, 1933, the daughter of the late Eugene and Rowena (Mullen) Winter and spent her youth growing up in Richmond, Yarmouth County. She is survived by her husband, Arden of 67 years; daughter, Darlene (Kevin); sons, Eugene (Jeanie) and Brian; granddaughters, Nicole and Amanda (Adam) and great-grandson, Baylan. Eleanor was predeceased by her parents; sister, Faylene and daughter-in-law, Marcy. Eleanor cared for the family and also became a tireless advocate for children with learning disabilities, rising to President of CAMR, which today is the Canadian Association for the Mentally Challenged. This soft-spoken, easy-going woman would not take one step backward in defending what she felt was right and just, for those who couldn’t speak for themselves. She was their Champion. Eleanor balanced home life and raising the children while working in the office at MT&T, all the while she continued her passion for volunteering - working with the Literacy Foundation. Later in life when the children moved out on their own she would join Arden in creating and running their joint venture called Alamo Investments, renovating and managing rental properties. They were hard workers and did so as a team. The last three years of her life were special. Eleanor fought her way through a devastating stroke in 2016 that set her back but did not take her spirit. The family believe these three years were a gift. We will forever be grateful for these last years. It afforded the family the time to realize what a gem we had and gave us the opportunity to celebrate, pay homage and appreciate her…just as we should at this time. We will miss her dearly, however, we do feel blessed and take great comfort that we had her so long. She loved-cared-shared unconditionally. Gone but never forgotten. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Sweeny’s Funeral Home & Crematorium, Yarmouth. Visitation will be held Monday, May 13,2019 from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. at Sweeny’s Funeral Chapel with service to follow. Burial to take place at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. Michael Cannell officiating. Donations in memory may be made to Pleasant Valley Church Cemetery or RRSS( Regional Residential Service Society) in Dartmouth ,NS. Online condolences may be sent or you may sign the guestbook on-line

To my step sister Eleanor... your gone from your physical form but you remain spiritually in our hearts and await the day when our creator delivers his promises. I find this helps me in troubled times. John 5:28 28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice Revelation 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Isaiah 65: 21 They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. 22 They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full. 23 They will not toil for nothing, Nor will they bear children for distress, Because they are the offspring made up of those blessed by God, And their descendants with them. 24 Even before they call out, I will answer While they are yet speaking, I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, The lion will eat straw just like the bull, And the serpent’s food will be dust. They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain, says God. May God ,family and friends help you threw this difficult time. Our sincere sympathy from Allan Barb Winters and family Shawn Mark and Tracy
