Coldwater Shuffleboard has lost another treasured member of the Club. Eleanor Simmons passed away on April 30 at the Solders Memorial Hospital Orillia her 82nd year.Eleanor joined the Coldwater Club in 2006 and has always been a very active player and enjoyed meeting new players both at the Coldwater Club and the various other clubs where the tournaments are held throughout Ontario. Eleanor attended the winter shuffleboard round up dinner on April 10, and although she had been taking radiation treatments she was able to attend the dinner and enjoy the company of her fellow shufflers.
Many shuffleboard players will remember Eleanor and her shuffleboard partner Howard Snyder who played in many CNSA and OSA tournaments throughout Ontario.
Sorry to hear of Eleanor passing. May she Rest In Peace.
Eleanor was a lovely lady, always smiling and friendly.
We enjoyed playing shuffleboard with her in Coldwater.
