B. Eleanor Adams


B. Eleanor Adams B. Eleanor Adams

   Barbara Eleanor Adams, 77 of Moncton passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 30th, 2021 at the Moncton Hospital.  Born in Anagance on February 15, 1944, she was the daughter of the late Clarence and Ella Bessie Harper.

    In her early life Eleanor was a Home Economic Teacher and worked in the insurance business at Adams Insurance. She enjoyed travelling; having gone on several cruises, riding on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle, or driving her ’89 Ford Mustang convertible and listening to Elvis. Although Eleanor did not have any children, her unconditional love instead went toward the many cats and dogs she homed during her lifetime. 

   She is survived by her partner Roger Smith of Moncton, NB, sister Anne Teixeira (late Joseph) of Brampton, ON, and brother Harold Harper (Thérèse) of Anagance; nieces and nephews Ramon, Heidi, Shane, Sonya and Tyler; and Roger’s children Stephen, Susan, and Jeffery (Margaret). She is survived by several first cousins in addition to Dale Dael (Raphael) of Riverview, NB and will also be missed by her many friends and family. 

   Arrangements are in care of The Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800). There will be no visitation by request.  A Graveside Service at Anagance Cemetery will be held at a later date. 

   In Eleanor’s memory, donations to the Moncton SPCA or the Anagance Cemetery would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences are available at 

"I came just to take you riding 
in the sweet, cool evening air. 
Not so sure I really should –  
but did, and did not care.

As now the time is past and gone, 
the memory fades away. 
The warmth felt with your presence 
as we rode through night and day.

Be for yourself, for no one else, 
do what you feel is right. 
For if I had one gentle wish, 
we’d ride close again tonight."
