Obituary for Elena "Lee" Norma Dreger (Acker)

Dreger, Elena (Lee) Norma
(nee Acker)
August 7, 1938 – May 22, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother, wife, grandmother, aunt, and sister Lee Dreger on May 22, 2020. Lee was born Elena Acker in Lake Pleasant, NS where she grew up with her parents, 8 siblings, and a one-horned cow named Rosebud.
She met her future husband Leslie, then an RCAF technician, on a beach near Lake Pleasant and despite him unintentionally almost drowning her that day, married him and moved to Ottawa to raise a family. She is survived by Leslie, her husband of 57 yrs, and their children Kimberly(Daniel), Derek(Vanessa) and Sharilyn (Dean). Her love, kindness, generosity, and baking will be greatly missed by her 9 grandchildren (Bradley, Kyle, Matthew, Margaret, William, Lindsey, Odina, Olivia and Orla).  Predeceased by her parents Banford and Flora Acker, and brothers, Leo, James, Frelan and Sherman; survived by her sisters Marguerite(the late Murray), Joan (the late Edwin), Muriel and Marlene(Ben). Cherished aunt to her nieces, nephews and their children and a pillar of support to her friends. 
A special thank you to the staff in A5 ward at the Ottawa Hospital – Civic Campus.

She will be greatly missed by us all. Until we meet again. ♥

Very sad to just hear this news. Lee was such a wonderful person. My condolences to Leslie and family. I could not have asked for a better neighbour. We will miss her dearly!

Leslie, Kimberly, Derek, Sharlyn & Families: Our sincere sympathy on the passing of Aunt Elena. She was always so kind hearted and so proud of her family (she especially loved her grandchildren). Her knowledge and interest in current affairs was amazing and, even in her later years, she could hold her own in discussing just about anything. She was always my go-to source of information on our family history. She was a fantastic cook and seldom a week goes by when I'm not looking up one of the many recipes she's shared with me over the years. I will really miss our phone chats and emails. I never play Scrabble without thinking about her. I know her passing has left a huge hole in your hearts. May cherished memories give you strength during this difficult time. Debbie & Horst
