In loving memory ~
On Sunday, August 21, 2022, Eleanor Setso died peacefully at Columbia View Lodge. Eleanor was born and raised in Nelson B.C. Following high school graduation, Eleanor pursued her dream of becoming a nurse and moved to Spokane, Washington to attend Sacred Heart School of Nursing. Once she completed her nursing education, Eleanor married her loving husband Harold Setso. Eleanor took great pride in her work and loved being a nurse.
She worked in a variety of roles from community nursing in Yellowknife to her true passion, operating room nursing at KBRH. Once she retired, Eleanor continued to give and care for her community providing a welcoming smile and loving hug as a volunteer at KBRH. She never lost her passion for nursing. In her final months at CVL, Eleanor would often ask how she could help as she worried the staff was too busy and needed a hand.
Eleanor was predeceased by her husband Harold, her mother, father, and step father as well as brothers, sisters and other family members. She will be truly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her. Thanks to the amazing team at CVL who brought her joy and comfort every day.
As per Eleanor’s request, a funeral mass will be held Wednesday, August 31, 2022 at 1:00 pm at the Cathedral of Mary Immaculate, Nelson, BC.
