June 10, 1936 – June 28, 2021
We are sad to announce that Elaine passed away June 28 2021 at Holmberg House in Abbotsford BC.
She was born in Saskatoon, Sask. June 10 1937 briefly living in Calgary AB and finally settling in Mission BC.
She leaves behind her son Doug (Tracey), daughter Pat (Gord), grandchildren Colin (Patty), Lindsay (Brody), Kathy (Bryan), Michael and great grandchildren Mikayla, Alexandria, Grace, Brady, Kaidance, Lucia, Noralea and Deziere-Anna. Elaine is survived by her sister Josephine (Mike). Predeceased by her husband Del, brother’s Ray and Bill, her Mom Avice Dalke, step Dad Cornelius Dalke and her Dad Edmund Joseph Losier.
Elaine was introduced to Del by her brother Bill while the two of them were on leave from the navy. Elaine and Del were married in March 1959; a union that lasted 58 years. Elaine moved throughout BC due to Del’s employment yet considered Mission to be her home. In 1983 they moved to Abbotsford BC and settled in.
She enjoyed travel and often talked about the trips she had taken along the Alaska Highway and Oregon Coast. Trips to Hawaii, Mexico and especially to her Losier family reunions in New Brunswick were full of great memories. With friends near Abbotsford and around the province, she and Del had an active social life.
A loving Mom, Grandma and Nana with a kind heart and beautiful smile. She will be missed by those that knew her well.
A very special thank you to the health care givers at Holmberg House Hospice for their compassion during her final weeks and to ARH for the great care they provided to her.
A private family gathering will be held in August.
