Early in the morning of Tuesday March 7, 2017, at the age of 46, at Markham Stouffville Hospital, Elinor Marie (Kool) Hansen passed away after several months battling T-cell lymphoma (cancer) and liver complications.

Family, friends and others gathered on Saturday March 11, 2017, at Rouge Valley Mennonite Church, to join together in a Memorial Service in gratitude for Elinor's life. The audio for the service was recorded and you can listen to parts of it or the entire thing through links in the order of service, and you can read the obituary read during the service.

She will be dearly missed by all who love her, including her husband Peter, daughter Lynda (11), father Pieter Kool, and sisters Andrea (Richard) and Cathy (Alistair), and all the rest of her devoted family. Elinor will also be missed by her friends at Rouge Valley Mennonite Church, the Durham District School Board, Toronto United Mennonite Church, Silver Lake Mennonite Camp, and all the other communities in which she generously contributed her talents, efforts, and her vibrant approach to life.

In lieu of flowers, donations to any of the following would be appreciated by the family:
