Obituary of Elaine McLennan

In loving memory of Elaine McLennan (nee Pellerin) who passed away at the Temiskaming Lodge, Haileybury, Ontario, on December 28, 2020 at the age of 84, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s. Elaine was born in Grand Mere, Quebec on October 29, 1936. She was predeceased by her father, Alide Pellerin, mother, Alice Major, step-father, Maurice Major, and her daughter Jill McLennan Jennings. She is survived by her loving husband of 64 years, John McLennan, her daughter Lorri Spaans (Brent Field), daughter Patti Lucas, son Christopher McLennan, granddaughter Lauren and grandsons Kent and Scott Jennings, grandson Kyle Spaans (Lavianka), granddaughter Kristen Fleetham (Dale), granddaughter Alicia Lucas (Jamie Martin), grandsons Rylend, Brodan, and Connor McLennan (Mackenzie). She leaves behind great-granddaughters Scotlyn Fleetham, Aubrielle McLennan and Keegan Spaans and great-grandsons, Emerson and Jaxon McLennan. Elaine is lovingly remembered by her brothers Claude Pellerin (Bertha) and Mickey Major (Joanne) and their families. She is also survived by many family members on her husband’s side and her remaining family in Quebec. Elaine will always be remembered for loving to feed her friends and family all of the great food and desserts that she created. Elaine worked as a PSW and all of her clients loved the personal touch she provided for them. The job that she loved the most was being by John’s side as his assistant while he was a Scaler in the bush. She loved the outdoors and her two Golden Retreivers, Missy and Teeka. The family of the late Elaine McLennan wish to thank the Temiskaming Lodge for the care that she received while there and to thank family and friends for the many messages of sympathy received during these challenging times. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, no service will be held at this time. At a later date, the family will hold a celebration of life to honour her. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Temiskaming Lodge, 100 Bruce Street, Haileybury, ON P0J 1K0 or a charity of your choice.
