Eleanor Margaret Blondon (Fahey)80, Truro.

With heavy hearts, we regretfully announce the passing of Eleanor M. Blondon (Fahey).  Surrounded by her loving family, Eleanor passed away peacefully on March 12, 2024. Up until her last day Eleanor maintained her kindness, grace, compassion, appreciation of beauty, love of family and friends, and expressed gratitude for her long life, full of wonderful and varied experiences.

Eleanor was born and raised in Truro. She was a graduate of Success Business College where she finished top of her class. Eleanor’s working career began at Household Finance where she worked up to the time she got married. As her kids grew older, Eleanor decided to work part time at Pye’s Peek-a-boutique and Moments Boutique, where she was able to utilize her passion for style and fashion.

Eleanor was an extremely generous and beautiful lady with a beautiful soul, who was meticulous about her appearance. She was a loving mother and grandmother who enjoyed meeting new friends. The people that knew Eleanor were always impressed at her ability to handle all that life gave her. Even in her diminished state, near the end of her life, she continued to touch the hearts of so many, especially the folks at Wynn Park Villa. Eleanor’s family will be forever grateful for the loving care she has received from the entire staff at the Villa over the years.

Eleanor was predeceased by her parents, Irwin W. "Blondie" and Mary Blondon; brothers, Austin and Brian. She is survived by her children, Christine Fahey, Austin, Texas; Peter (Ronda) Fahey, Shortts Lake; grandsons, Isaac Fahey, Shortts Lake; Jacob Blair, Truro; Riley Blair, Truro; former husband, Ralph (Doris) Fahey, Truro; brother, Bernie (Tammy) Blondon, Brentwood; sister-in-law, Brenda Blondon, Bedford; nieces and nephews, Chris (Jodi) Blondon, Bedford; Kelly (Jean) Genier, Ottawa; Robin (Shawna) Blondon, Halifax; best friend, Jennifer (Jamie) Paterson, Truro.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro, where a celebration of her life will be held at 2 p.m., Monday, March 18, 2024. Reception will follow.
