Sopher, Eldora May

Eldora May Sopher of Fort Macleod, beloved wife of the late Charles Sopher and beloved companion of the late Frank Sato, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018, at the age of 90 years.
Eldora is survived by her six children, Jim (Diane), Gail (Bob), Diane, Don, Murray (Michelle) and Heather (Carey); 16 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families.
Eldora was predeceased by her infant daughter, Karen.
Eldora was born in Watrous, Sask. She grew up on a dairy farm in the Watrous and Manitou Beach area. She met Charlie when he boarded at their house. They married on June 5, 1949 and lived and farmed in and around the Nipawin area.
Jim arrived on Feb. 28, 1950, Karen came next Aug. 22, 1951 and she passed away on Jan. 22, 1952. Gail showed up Dec. 17, 1952. Diane arrived on Dec. 5, 1954 and Don was born Aug. 31, 1956. Shortly after that Charlie joined the army and they moved to Regina.
From Regina life took them to Whitehorse, where Murray came into the picture on Sept. 13, 1960. From there they moved to Calgary where Heather was born on June 20, 1965.
While in Whitehorse they ran the bowling alley on the army base. In Calgary she worked at the Co-op, but mostly as a busy stay-at-home mom. They had a pottery business out of their garage.
After Charlie passed away, Eldora moved to Fort Macleod. She met Frank in the fall of 1985. She and Frank had the opportunity to do lots of travelling. They travelled to Peru, Japan, Hawaii, Alaska and all across Canada and much of the northern U.S.
Eldora loved knitting, crocheting and even dabbled in quilts. Eldora loved to help Heather at craft markets and meet people, where if they were not careful, she would talk their ear off.
Eldora loved her grandchildren and her great grandchildren were the apples of her eye. She was grandma to anyone who needed companionship.
A celebration of life was held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018, at the Seniors Welcome Mat.
Memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. 200 — 119 14th St. N.W., Calgary, T2N 1Z6.
