With loving memory and profound sadness, our family announces the passing of our dear Ellie at the age of 86 years on Sunday, November 25, 2007 at the Mayfair Care Centre.
Elvera was born in Austria, immigrated to Canada at the age of nine and settled with her family in Regina where she met Michael; a marriage that lasted over sixty-two years. Ellie will be remembered as a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be fondly remembered for her love of dance, music, picnics, gardening, mountain hikes, family gatherings and her exceptional cuisine. Ellie will always be cherished and remembered by her loving husband and family.
Left to mourn her loss are her beloved husband Michael; daughter and son-in-law Pat and Jim Thomson of Aurora, ON; sons and daughters-in-law, Peter and Tanya, Michael and Carrie, and Robert and Cynthia; seven grandchildren, Kelty, Sean, Tamara, Mark, Carly, Kyle and Alexis; and by her three great-grandchildren, Mikayla, Grace and Sarah. She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law Michael and Hazel Bernreiter of London, ON and by several nieces and nephews and their families. Our dear little Ellie will always be missed and lovingly remembered by all those who knew her. God bless you my sweetheart.
