May 12, 1938 – August 11, 2011
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of
our mom, Elaine on
August 11, 2011.
After a brief, but very hard fought battle with extreme courage and dignity, she lost her fight with cancer.
Predeceased by her loving husband and best friend Harry in October 2008. She is survived by her loving sons Mike (Lori) and Greg (Sarah) and proud Grandmother to Cole and Paige.
Mom, Grandma – we will love you and miss you always for your kindness, gentleness, and your generosity. You were the best Mom and Grandma anyone could ask for. We were so lucky to have you and will treasure the memories of you for the rest of our lives.
Mom took great pride in her family and her home and cherished all of her wonderful friends. We would like to thank those who called her, sent cards and came and visited her. She knew she was loved by many.
Thank you to the wonderful and supportive doctors, nurses and volunteers of the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society. They really are angels and looked after mom with great care and were very supportive to all of us. They said she truly was a lady.
A Celebration of Life will take place in Castlegar on August 24, 2011 at 1 pm at her home at 1707 Ridgewood Drive, Castlegar.
