Eleonora enjoyed helping our her community, she volunteered for many years with the food for thought program, Ukrainian dancing, Countryfest, Ukrainian Festival, Dauphin Kings hockey games. She enjoyed getting out and lending a hand. Eleonora was a witty lady, she liked to joke around and if she didn't like what you said, she would have let you know, or how she rolled her eyes when you said something wrong or inappropriate. She was also known for her cooking abilities, which her grandkids can attest to. Her grandson Dylan loved the perogies they made, granddaughter Carissa loved the Mexican lasagna, grandson Michael loved her little perogie cheese bits, which anyone whom has tried can agree, grandson Deston loved her pecan butter tarts, and the baked goodies were so yummy too.
