With great sadness we announce the passing of Elayne Brielsman (nee Hansen) with family around her on Oct 4, 2014 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm, BC at 70 years of age after a courageous battle with cancer.
Elayne was born November 5, 1943 in Elfos, SK. She lived in Prince George from 1953 until 1999 where she married her husband Norm raised her daughters, worked at the Royal Bank and thoroughly enjoyed spending time camping, cross-country skiing and at the family cabin on Summit Lake. In 1999 Norm and Elayne retired to Blind Bay where she loved to travel, entertain friends, be Grandma and spend time in her garden and quilting.
Elayne is survived by her loving husband Norm of 53 years, her daughters Kim Wentworth of Vancouver and Dee-Ann Brielsman of Sorrento, B.C., grandchildren, Adam Wentworth and Carleigh Wentworth, her brother Bruce (Bev) and sister Sylvia (Bob) as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother Jon.
Many thanks for the care and support provided by the wonderful doctors and nurses who cared for Elayne.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to a charity of your choosing in Elayne’s memory would be appreciated.
A celebration of Elayne’s life will be held on Sunday October 19th from 2-4 pm in the common room at MacIntosh Grove apartments, Salmon Arm.
