TANNER, Elaine Carolyn (nee Kellert)

April 17, 1950 – Wetaskiwin, Alberta
May 3, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with our deepest regret and sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our wife, mother, grandmother, and sister Elaine Carolyn Tanner at the age of 69 years.

Although Elaine lived a quiet life, she had the ability to touch and make an impression on many people throughout her years. Whether you were a friend from the old days, or one made in recent years, you would be a friend for life.

Her husband of almost forty-eight years, Jeff, will truly miss her. Elaine’s three children, seven grandkids, and the many kids that she helped raise through her years of babysitting will be at a loss without her. She will also be greatly missed by her siblings, many friends, and other family members.

All of you will have your cherished memories of Elaine. Hold these memories close and share them with each other. The time that we have to cherish our loved ones is always too short. Make the best of the time that you have together.

Elaine’s family will host a Celebration of Life at a later date. Times and details will follow.

In living memory of Elaine Tanner, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, CALGARY, AB, T2E 2V6, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

Offer Condolence for the family of TANNER, Elaine Carolyn (nee Kellert)

To Elaine’s family, I am heartbroken for you. Her journey of love, joy, and guidance to all of you that she loved so much has ended far to soon. Grief is so hard on the ones left behind.
