June 19, 1938 – July 4, 2022
In loving memory ~
Verna Elasoff passed away July 4, 2022, after a short battle with cancer at the age of 84. Verna was born in Sproule Creek on June 19, 1938, to Peter and Mary Terekoff while they were in the Kootenays for a visit. Verna was well known for her hospitality, her sense of humour, and was a generous and loving spirit.
Verna and her husband Nick, who pre-deceased her in 2014, raised three children: Monte (pre-deceased in 2002), Joe, and Selene. Verna was the proud grandma to Jarred, Harley, Nicholas, Jesse, Jason, as well as tow great grandson, Liam, and Dylan. She is also survived by her sister Polly as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
In her youth and while raising a family she was an avid camper and loved fishing. If she was surrounded by the family that she loved, she was content to enjoy the simple but important things in life and all stories start and end with Verna laughing. The words that first come to her children’s minds Is she was the best Mom ever, she was so fair with everyone, generous, loving, and caring.
In our hearts forever.
In respecting Verna’s wishes, there will be no funeral service and a private family interment of her ashes will be held.
The family would like to thank everybody for their support and condolences.
