Lenore Annette Salminen

-

We are sad to announce the sudden passing of our dear Lenore. Family and friends will gather on Monday, Oct. 9 at 3pm to toast her fully lived life. Tegler Manor Social Room 9943 – 110 Street.

Lenore’s sudden passing has come with shock and surprise to us all. She was the life of the party and loved to have a good time.  The good times always included any amount of her loyal, loving friends and family.

She is survived by her children: Marcy (Marc), Kimberly, Kendall (Dharlyn); brother Norman; sisters as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends from far and wide.

She always had a story to tell, a joke to share and did neither half-way. She was willing to help friends, family and strangers alike. Lending a hand be it a midnight divorce move, offering a ride to an appointment or chauffeuring a group for a pierogi fest at Uncle Ed’s.

Her Thanksgiving stuffing was renowned and the annual treat and stuffing review will be missed by all that were welcomed at her table. Cooking for hours, inviting those that may not have anywhere to go and sending everyone home with tasty leftovers. And she loved her leftovers so sharing was a true testament to her generosity.

Lenore loved to travel whether it be a quick trip to the casino for a few spins at the slots or all the way to the Philippines to celebrate her son’s marriage. And that was no regular package tour – she took in a cockfight after attending Sunday mass as well as visited AIDS patients in a Manila hospital with her favorite hunky priest.

Lenore was an avid “Fringer”, jazz aficionado and devout thespian. She was a social convenor for her many diverse groups of good friends, a keen card shark, and fun companion.

From baking her Melting Moment cookies with her Granddaughter Kayla to a birthday outing at Red Star Pub to partake in shooters and a quick round on the dance floor. There was not much this lady would say no to.

Alas, Lenore has moved on and has a new audience now. Things will be a lot quieter around here without her and she will be very missed by all. Thank you for the fun and fond memories Lenore.

Until we meet again dear friend, sister, mother, grandmother and more.  No one will be able to fill those red boots like you did.

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages Lenore’s loved ones to support local music and theatre, whether it be going to a concert, play, or making a donation to support local music, art and theatre projects in her memory.

Sorry, there are no details found...
