It is with great sadness that the family of Johanne Elder announces her passing after a 5 year battle with cancer.
Johanne will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her spouse of 59 years, Richard, and her children David (Janice), Stephen (Lynette) and Wendy. She will also be missed by her seven grandchildren; Richard, Shawn, Sarah, Nadine, Shelby, Candice and Rachel.
She was a patient and loving mother and grandmother, always listening with interest and understanding to her family. Johanne was a gentle person who enjoyed the simple things in life. She was an avid gardner and her flowers bloomed beautifully in her many gardens.
A private memorial will be held by the family and any donations cam be in her memory to the Nelson Hospital.
