Elaine Nazaroff

With sad and heavy hearts the family of Elaine Nazaroff, of South Slocan, wishes to announce her passing at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, blessed with 69 years of life.


Elaine was born in Nelson, on June 24, 1945, to parents Peter and Polly Bidinoff. She grew up in Crescent Valley and attended school at Mount Sentinel until her marriage to Walter Nazaroff on December 29, 1962. The young couple moved to South Slocan, where they raised 3 children. As her children grew, Elaine completed her high school credits and worked as a cook in restaurants. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, knitting, reading, camping, travelling and visiting. Her greatest joy was her family, especially her 2 granddaughters.


Left to mourn her loss is her loving husband of 52 years Walter; son Wayne; daughters Leila (Sean) and Sasha (Bill); granddaughters Xana and Lexi; sisters Polly Esovoloff and Vera (Walter) Chernoff and brothers Bill (Claira) and Phillip (partner Linda Tarasoff).
