Elsie was born on July 19,1931 on the farm in Blaine Lake, SK. It was there that she took her schooling and landed her first big job as a telephone operator. While working she met her husband Mike. They married on November 19,1949 and moved to a country school near Hafford, Since Mike was a teacher his career took them to various country schools until they settled in Langham in 1961. While in Langham, Elsie ran the telephone office from 1963-1966 until "dial" phones came in. Following that, Elsie worked at Jim Munroe's "Shop-Rite," the "Red & White," and Dieter Martin's Greenhouse, retiring before she was 65. At 81 Elsie was very young at heart and enjoyed many things including gardening, cooking, baking, needlework, reading, flowers, jewellery, shopping, travelling, babysitting, playing cards, and dancing. She valued her friends and family and enjoyed entertaining and socializing with them. They always appreciated the hospitality served up by her and Mike in their home.
Elsie had a caring personality and a generous heart that people were drawn to. She was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone around her. Her smile was infectious, her friendships were many, and she always brightened others days. Her strength was enviable.
Elsie was a loving wife, mom, grandma, and great grandma. Her pride and joy were her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was happiest when they were around her. We all love and miss you... Nothing can ever take the place you hold in our hearts
