WILLIAMS ~ Elva (nee Chester)
Surrounded by love, Elva went to be with her Lord on Jan. 27, 2010. Predeceased by her Husband Ed. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter Beth (Chuck) and her son Bill (Lee) as well as her large extended family. Elva was born in Dewdney, B.C. and lived on a farm in Silverdale until she left to join the Royal Canadian Air force women’s division. Elva was interested in everything that life offered but particularly enjoyed reading, politics, the ex service women’s’ meetings, and time with her family. Her special gift was with children, especially babies, earning her title of “baby whisperer”. The family would like to thank the wonderful Nurses, Doctors and Staff of Emergency and 2 West at Ridge Meadows Hospital. Their care for our mother and support for the family will never be forgotten. A celebration of Elva’s life will be held on February 5th at 10:30am, at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel – 11765 224th Street, Maple Ridge. Interment to follow at Hatzic Cemetery at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion, or the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation.
