Eleanor Emily Conrad (nee Kesler), of Fort Macleod, passed away on Saturday, May 28, 2022, at the age of 75 years.

Eleanor is survived by her children Vicky (Thomas) McCormack of Simi Valley, California, Gordy (Leslie) Conrad of Victoria, B.C., Marty (Darice) Conrad of Lethbridge, Jerry (Michelle) Conrad of Lethbridge, Brookee (Matthew) Bullock of Lethbridge, Becky Gouchie of Fort Macleod, and AJ (Katie) Conrad of Burbank, California. She is also survived by 23 grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and countless nieces and nephews.

Eleanor is also survived by her brothers Norman (Karen) Kesler and Gordon (Joyce) Kesler; sister Trudie Fyfe; brother-in-law Blair (Gail) Conrad; sisters-in-law Cheryl (Gordon) MacKay, Laurie (Bob) Muir and Iris Conrad.

Eleanor is predeceased by her mother and father, her son-in-law Jason Gouchie, and her beloved husband of 58 years, Robert Conrad.

Eleanor was raised in New Dayton and Raymond. She moved to the farm in Fort Macleod with her sweetheart Bob in 1966. There they raised their seven children and lived for 54 years together, with Eleanor remaining there after Bob’s death.

Eleanor loved to travel, especially to Glacier National Park, where she enjoyed camping, hiking, and relaxing on the shores of Lake McDonald. She was a lifelong Disney fan and took many opportunities to visit Disneyland throughout her life. Christmas was a special time to her, and she found joy in hosting family gatherings and decorating lavishly. Her family and friends looked forward to her delicious Christmas candy each year.

Service was a central part of Eleanor’s life, including volunteering with the scouts, ensuring family and guests in her home were comfortable and well-fed, and serving in the temple and other church callings. She touched many lives with her caring heart. Eleanor was fiercely independent, stubborn, kind, and a trusted confidant for family and friends. Among all of her accomplishments, she was proudest of her seven children. 

Interment will take place at Archmount Cemetery in Lethbridge on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at 9:30 a.m., followed by a memorial service at 11 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Fort Macleod.

Friends and family are welcomed and encouraged to express their sympathies and condolences to the family at the Conrad farm on Friday, June 3, 2022, from 4-7 p.m.
