Died January 26, 2013
Born in Melbourne, Quebec, Elaine, after a long battle with leukemia, passed away peacefully at home in Victoria with her family surrounding her. Elaine leaves behind her sister: Myrna and her daughters: Starr (Doug) and Wanda (Larry) and her son, Lyle (Pat). She also had grandchildren: Matthew (Megh), David (Gowoon), Terra (Ted), Jason (Hilary), Andrew (Jocelyn), Logan, Lucas, and Mari as well as great grandchildren: Morgan, Dakota, Hunter, and Elaina. She is dearly missed by all. Elaine's passion was her family and her faith. She took every opportunity to spend time with family members individually and has left them with many cherished memories. Her final days were made peaceful for her by the tender loving care and encouragement of her daughters and son and the nursing skill of her granddaughter, Terra, and the Home Care nurses and PRT nursing team and Dr. Anna Mason, for all of whom we are grateful.
Elaine gave her heart to Jesus years ago, lived her life for Him and now is enjoying her reward as she walks hand-in-hand with her Lord.
A celebration of her life (with a reception following) will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 2pm at New Life Community Fellowship, corner of Tillicum and Carey Rds in Victoria. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.
