Elsie was born in Rossburn, Manitoba on August 7th, 1922. She grew up on the prairies, and came to Sioux Narrows in 1946 to work for Red Indian Lodge. Here she met her husband and made Sioux Narrows her home for the past 57 years. For many years they worked at Apache Island, looking after special guests and creating for them memories which will not ever be forgotten. Elsie has always been active in the community, and within the church, where she served her Lord faithfully. She loved the lake and especially her home in the bay. She loved to tend her flowers, which surrounded her house and property. She loved the call of the loons, a pair of which always nest in Elsie's bay, and she loved to listen to the song of the robins in springtime. She truly enjoyed the beauty of God's creation, and her strong unfailing faith was an inspiration to all she met. The Lord was her strength and her guide throughout her life, and He shone through her to encourage and strengthen others.

The family would like to thank all of the friends who prayed, visited, sang, brought food and flowers and sent cards of encouragement. Thanks also to Drs. Hammett, Bowerman and Scaife, nurses Carol, Shirley and Robyn from Com. Care; Julie and Kathy from Home Care.

Elsie's courageous battle with cancer was met by her strong faith which carried her through, and she was an inspiration to everyone throughout this difficult time.
