Obituary for Celena Elaine Rector

CELENA ELAINE RECTOR 1930-2019
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Celena Elaine Rector (nee Smith). Elaine was the second daughter of the late Ella Darlene and Cecil James Smith of Springhill, Nova Scotia. Elaine is pre-deceased by her husband Wilfred Rector and her great grandson Quinlin James, as well as her sister Doris. She is survived by her three sons Wendell (spouse Laurie), David (spouse Nancy-Jean) and Keven (spouse Amanda). She has seven grandchildren Daniel (spouse Meghan), Aaron (spouse Katy), Lisa (spouse Ryley), Christopher, Jennifer (partner Jeremy), Kathryn (spouse Shane) and Victoria (spouse Daniel). She has six great-grandchildren Liam, Benjamin, Logan, Noah, Charlotte and Daria.
Elaine was born on October 31, 1930 and grew up in the Springhill area with her sisters Doris and Helen and her three brothers Glen, Allan and Brian. She lived in many different homes throughout her life. The most recent was her beloved home on Orchardview Drive, Trenton. After she had some medical distress in 2013, she moved into The Carrington Retirement Home, where she spent her last years.
Elaine was active with the Girl Guides of Canada as a leader, a volunteer and was a lifetime Trefoil Guild member. At home, Elaine’s hands were always busy either in her garden or sitting in her chair with her sewing, knitting or crocheting. She was most proud of her time at the 105Club where she quilted with the quilters helping create some very beautiful quilts. Elaine was also an avid writer, maintaining a lifetime treasure trove of diaries, journals and (like her brother Glen) an occasional story or poem. One of her pieces was published and paid her a small dividend, a small “feather-in-her-cap” for a proud Canadian lady.
Family and friends are invited to visit at Weaver Life Centre, 29 Bay St. Trenton, on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 from 1:00-2:00PM. Service at 2:00PM with reception to follow. Donations in memory of Elaine can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Online guest book and condolences at www.weaverfuneralhomes.com
