    Dear Family,
    We enjoyed so much all your memories & thoughts for your faithful mother, grandmother & great grandmother and we appreciate so much the option of standing by you Virtually.
    We did not know Mrs McEachern so well, except for friendly greetings & smile in passing, but I did so much enjoy the applesauce for breakfast at Glen Valley, that I had been told she had lovingly prepared little by little through the winter. Our Sincere condolences to you all, knowing there is joy & sorrow.

    Thinking of all the family and sending lots of love. I have many sweet memories of helping at the store as a child and all the special visits. I am so thankful for the love and care of Grandpa Bruce and Grandma Elnora 💜

    We will never forget how good they were to Ken and Nora Stowards, they made so many trips a pleasure for them, I understood Nora got the front seat while Elnora kept Ken company in the back. And we owe them a big thank you for taking Ann under their wings when she needed it. Too bad I am only saying this now after it’s too late for either Bruce or Elnora to hear it. A lesson in “Give praise where praise is due, and when due” .

    That was a beautiful funeral service for a beautiful woman inside and out. I remember those meetings in the home and also visits with my parents. You will miss her as I miss my mother but it’s a comfort to know they have both gone to their heavenly home.

    I love you, Grandma! So many special memories are forever in my mind from being near Grandma most days in my youth. I giggle at the thought of her trying to put bobbles in my hair, the bologna sandwiches and all the infamous arm squeezes. She was always kind, fair, hardworking and so steady. My heart is happy to know that she’s gone home to God now but my thoughts are with Dad, Darrel and Glenna who have said goodbye to their dear mom. Much love from New Zealand xx

    Elnora was a dear friend,always willing to listen to what you had to say. always a smile on her face. I VISITD HER WHEN SHE WAS LIVING IN TWO HICKEN HOUSES PUT TOGETHER WITH SLOPING FLOOR AND ONWARDS WHEN THE STORE WAS BUILT. We had children within days of each other and always enjoyed each others company. My last recollection of her was after I moved to Vancouver Island when I came over to the mainland I always stopped and visited her first before my family. I walked into her nursing home and when she saw me she pointed at me and smiled . Rest in peace my dear, you will missed so much

    A beautiful lady full of grace. Her inner beauty radiated to everyone she was with. I appreciated time with her when I was in her field. Thinking of all her family with love.

    To the McEachern Families.
    Thoughts are with you folks at thiis time, and so glad your mom finished faithfully in the race. It inspires others to keep on, keeping faithful in the eternal race. My first rememberance of Bruce’s Mrkt was when I worked at Kelly Douglas in Burnaby, working on invoices, and Bruce’s Market would come in with an order to be filled. It was in 1956 after Jack & I were married, that I was first in the store and got to meet them. Their faithfulness inspired us who were young couples then, to have an open home for God’s ministry and family. Verna Nesvog & family

    So thankful for this dear lady, I have a memory I love when they came to my home driving a van full of grand children whom they were taking on a trip of a lifetime. I don’t remember how many grand children were with them but most of them and they were taking them to Disneyland. They had a heart of love for all those little ones.
    I also remember standing by Bruce one day as Ryan and his (then little) family left for a special convention up north and he said “I have no greater joy today than to see my grand children and great grand children going off to convention together so happily”. I knew what he meant too. Love their hearts of gold and their influence lives on in my heart too

    I have many wonderful memories of Bruce and Elnora coming to visit us each summer, no matter where we lived in BC. They treated us kids like we their own grandchildren and with each visit there was always lots of gifts and a trip to Dairy Queen!

    Dear McEachern family,
    Our thoughts are with you today as you say your final goodbyes to your very special Mom, Grandma and friend. Her faithful, loving life has been an encouragement and inspiration to many. She will be dearly missed.

    Thinking of all of you at this time and feeling so grateful that I got to see “Grandma” every time I visited Maple Ridge. My parents spoke often of Bruce and Elnora and I’m grateful that I got to visit with her and experience the same feeling of friendship and fellowship that they talked of. I know you will miss her more than anything, but I also know that you have the comfort of knowing that she has reached her eternal home, what she has strived for all her life. That gives us all comfort and hope. Thoughts and prayers and love go out to you today as you all gather to pay your respects.

    I had the privilege of meeting with Ma and Pa Sunday mornings. I still remember their smaller house and store. I’ll always remember the time when my mom had a broken leg and we were in one of our vans leaving for home. As Dad/Mom was backing up someone accidentally leaned on one of mom’s crutches which pressed into the gas pedal and we drove back first into side of the smaller store. From the many family gatherings and meetings, seeing their new store and few times speaking with Ma when going to Bruce’s Market, I will always cherish the many happy memories. Thank you for sharing your homes, stores and lives. Sending lots of healing and positive energies and love to the friends and family.

    We both have so many memories of both Grandma and Grandpa McEachern from our universities days until now. Another faithful and steady pilgrim has reached home. The twinkle in her eyes showed her inner care and love to us all! Although all of you will be feeling the loss, we know you, like us will be thankful for the true example of loyalty shown to family and friend alike. It has been a privilege to have known and loved her too!

    I’ll never forget her outstanding kindness, wisdom, hospitality, generosity, and even respect—to a young undeserving man. She was one of the beacons that drew me back to Truth, and so I’m forever grateful for her life.

    Dear McEachern Family. My first memory of Your mom was when we moved from Port Moody to Whonnock in 1954 I was 6 years old and on that November morning your mom and mine drove me to the Whonnock Elementary School for my first day at a new school! That spirit was the spirit of an elders wife . During the next number of years growing up I had the wonderful privilege to have fellowship in the Mc Eachern home. Precious memories!! Then in 1970 we again had the privilege to meet in fellowship until 1978 with our young family. Many many special memories of a very special family love from Dennis and Barbie Melvin

    Oh, My Dear Friends and Family, My heart goes out to you all, There are many souls who are mourning with you all! I am sure that all of Maple Ridge is feeling your deep loss. I remember Elnora always smiling, speaking to all the customers at Bruces Market. She always asked how you were and she really meant it! Her smile warmed you right up from the tip of your toes to the top of your head. My heart would glow for days after visiting with her. She was one of the most beautiful Pillars I ever knew! The encouragement I myself and many others appreciated. I could take the whole page trying to share how gentle a soul our loving lady, Mother, Grandmother, great grandmother, and dear friend to all but all the words cannot explain her wonderful goal in life she revealed every day. Now she has gone home. We will never forget her touch on our hearts!

    I first remember your family in the 1950 & 60’s, coming out with the Beaulieu family to our ranch near Williams Lake, for the Sunday Morning Meeting.
    In the later years, my sister, Gladys, who was a room mate with Glenna when she attended UBC, often spoke about your parents, Bruce and Elnora.
    In their retirement years, I often saw them at Prince George Convention and would have chat with them.
    A Wonderful Couple!

    Angus. Marj and family: it’s hard to know what to say at a time line this.

    We didn’t have the privilege of knowing your mom very well, but are encouraged knowing her faith came first, and the ripple effect has touched many a heart.

    Thinking of you and the family at this time with love and comfort.

    We were saddened to hear that Elnora has passed into eternity and we want to express our sincerest condolences to the McEachern family. Our mom (Mildred nee Sandberg) was the bridesmaid at the wedding of Elnora and Bruce, and we so often heard of the wonderful times she shared in friendship and truth over many, many years. It is so comforting to know that Heaven will be a meeting place again.
    Sincerely, Ron and Kathie Lindstrom; Linda and Peter Sillje

    I had the pleasure of knowing Grandma from working at the store for many years, she was there often, saying a friendly hello to customers as they walked in, tidying up and re stocking the grocery shelves. I remember her and Bruce having meals and coffee together, sitting as close as they could at those deli tables. Lots of memories of Bruce as well. I remember sitting on my break beside him, having the great experience of his stories and advice. He had such a great sense of humour too, I can see Elnora laughing along the way even though she probably had heard those stories several times. When she was still living at home, I took care of Grandmas hands and feet for her manicure and pedicures for a few years. I heard many stories of the old days and the experiences she had along the way. It was always a nice relaxing visit. She was loved by many and will forever be in our hearts.

    We will always remember Elnora for her beautiful spirit and wonderful example! The years we spent, first at meeting in her and Bruce’s home and meeting with her for years after, will forever be some of our favourite memories etched in our minds. Always a smile, an encouraging word and a handshake that said so much without saying a word. Will always think of her enthusiastic welcome to our entire crew every Sunday. We are forever grateful for her beautiful influence. Much love to you all!

    Takes me back more than 50 years when I was first aware of Bruce and Elnora. Through those early and later teen years of my life they were another pillar of truth for me. Through my teenage eyes I saw Elnora as a very stately lady with a very strong work ethic. Two boys intent on mayhem and mischief, we were required to get the work done before anything else. Complaints were ignored.

    I admired her love for the truth of God, and the ready hand to reach out to those that were in need. Elnora has gone home to a place prepared for her, may we meet again one day.

    We are so very sad that we can’t be there in person but we will be there in heart and spirit.
    Elnora was such a warm, loving, and giving person. She will be greatly missed. I have many good memories of time spent there, and working at Bruce’s Market. And of course our trip to Disneyland was a treat like no other!
    Bruce and Elnora were stellar examples to so many, and we are thankful for their faithfulness and love over the years.
    Big hugs to all. Wishing so much we could be there but such is life these days!! 🥰💐

    My sweetest memory of Elnora was her sincere love. I always felt her love even in the briefest of encounters
