Elaine will be remembered by her selfless attitude, love for family, and devotion to God. Elaine's faith was an essential part of her life that comforted her during her struggle with dementia. Her family and friends knew her as a kind soul, always willing to help and give her time to others, whether that involved supporting local craft shows, or volunteering at the church. Known for her ability to turn everything into a poem, and her love of a good joke, Elaine's sense of humor will be missed. Now that her struggles are over, we are sure that Elaine is enjoying a cold beer outside with dad.
The family wishes to thank Elaine's many friends, as well as her wonderful healthcare team for their kindness, compassion, and support. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to commemorate Elaine's life may donate in her memory to the Alzheimer Society of Canada. To donate CLICK HERE
