Mary "Elaine" Fisher (Brownlee)
Dec 5, 1944 – Jan 1, 2013
Loving wife, our mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, auntie and loyal neighbour, Elaine lived her life through her heart. She very much loved her husband David and gave him her soul. She devoted herself to her children, Debbie and David, and gave them an exemplary example to follow. Elaine gave and never stopped giving. She was a flawless Grandmother to her precious grandchildren to whom she and David totally devoted their lives. Elaine gave herself by keeping her family together, a passion that consumed her spirit, and guided her actions, and for that we have all truly been blessed to have shared in her beautiful life. Her passion for family took her to her favourite place, the family cottage at Weyakwin Lake. Spending time at the lake with her family was her joy and she could not wait for the May long weekend to open the doors and give her love to all that shared in the gift of her personal paradise. Elaine was drawn to the outdoors, and as a 40 year member of the Girl Guides, she gave herself to its vision by striving every day to live by the promise and laws of the organization. A dedicated learner, she was so proud of the schools she attended, Mayfair and Mount Royal, and encouraged her children to forever be learners. Putting her own dreams of becoming a school teacher aside, Elaine gave by going to work at the Bank of Montreal in a hope that she could give her family more. Elaine enjoyed her work and took great pride in the many close friends she developed over the years. She was excited to retire so she could give even more to her grandkids. Elaine was born in Cocking Sussex England, the first born of her Canadian soldier father, Russel Cleveland and war bride mother, Phyllis Mary. Elaine and her mother immigrated to Canada in 1946 landing at the famous Pier 21. She held tight to England, a bond she shared with her Mother and her younger sister Colleen. Elaine was predeceased by her father Russel Brownlee, her mother and father in-law Netta and David Fisher, brother –in-laws James and George Fisher, sister in-law Ruby Hennigan and her husband Bob, her parental grandparents, Granddad and Nannie Knight and special Uncle Boy (little Jean) and Ralph in Cocking Sussex, England, by her Uncle Jim and Auntie Janie Brownlee, Uncle Wes and Auntie Caroline Brownlee, Auntie Francis and Uncle Bert Houchen, Aunt Margaret and Uncle Ray Sipple, Aunt Dora Flanagan, cousins Stephen Brownlee and Earl Flanagan, nephew Eddie Foster and the family pets, which she spoiled, loved to pieces and gave her loyalty, Toe Joe, Licorice and Angus. She has left to mourn her devastated husband David, daughter Debbie Philipenko (Larry) and son David (Patti) and her special gifts from God, her precious angels Alissa, Emma, Olivia and little Davey, her mother, Phyllis Brownlee, sister Colleen Whitten (Tim)and their children Lindsay Webb (Jamie) and her family Sydney, Keira and Everett, Scott (Samantha) and his family Ruthie and Hemming, sister –in- law Barbara and her son Cole (Lauren) and their daughter Malynn, brother-in-law John (Cheryl) and his son Cailin, sister-in-law Janet and her children, Alex and Netta and her family, David Hennigan and Janet (Gerald) and their families, George Jr. and his family, Laura, Scott, Jamie and his family, cousins Donna, Ross, Craig, Myrna, Darlene, Sherry, Jerry, Doug, as well as her cousins Christine, Dudley, Russell , Yvonne, Lester and their families and Aunt (Big) Jean Udell in England, her relatives in Kirkcaldy Fife Scotland, second cousin Sandy (Celia) Carson, her very special friend in England, Sandra and all her close friends and neighbours. We all miss you so very much, Mom. You gave us your world, you gave us your heart, you gave us your life and you asked for nothing in return. You have inspired us all to be better people. We are forever grateful and we will never ever forget you. We give thanks for Elaine on Saturday, January 5th at 10 a.m. at Mayfair United Church.
