It is with broken hearts the family announces the passing of our beloved mom, Eleanor Staats at the age of 89 years.  There to welcome her with open arms are her sons Paul and Cameron; her grandchildren Andrew, Daylan, Robby and Tanner; and great-grandchild McKenna; and her parents Freda Greene and Albert Jacobs.  She also joins her siblings Delma, Delores, Bernice, Jean and Norman, and husbands Andrew Staats and Glenn Maracle.
She leaves behind her loved children whom she thought the world of:  Bonnie (Cecil), Garfield (Sandy), Beth (Ron), Brenda (Johnson), Vernon (Amy), Robin (Bebby), Paula, and Jamie (Rhonda).  She leaves behind 27 grandchildren, 39 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren.  All the grandchildren will hear stories of what an amazing woman their grandmother was and learn of her love for poetry and the environment.
Eleanor was the author of “Poems from Grand River Territory as Seen Through A Native Woman’s Eyes”.  She started to write poems while in her late 60s.  She loved having family get-togethers and thought they were important to keep family together.
