Elsie Stafford

June 19, 1920 ~ March 21, 2010

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our mother, Elsie Stafford.  Elsie died on March 21st after just a short stay at NRGH.  A grand lady of 89 years, who had a smile, a hug, and a kind word with all those who crossed her path.  She loved to sing, and she made friends wherever she went.  She has spent the past 9 months enjoying the good life at Origin At Longwood; the very best place to be.  Elsie was predeceased by her sister Winnie; brother Jim; and in 1999 by her husband Bob.  She is survived by her eldest daughter Barbara Newbury; husband Pat; and grandchildren: Tracey and Claire and 3 great grandsons.  She is also survived by her daughter Joyce Myers and husband Herb;  her sister Sheila Hetherington, husband Ian, their children and grandchildren and by a few remaining relatives residing in England.

 You will be in our hearts forever.  We love you Mum.  God bless.

 Come join us and pay tribute to Elsie on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. at the First Memorial Funeral Chapel, 1720 Bowen Road, Nanaimo.
