It is with great sadness we announce the passing of(Elsie) Helen McDonald on March 17, 2016, after a long battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis.  Elsie was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba on April 18, 1927.

She married the love of her life in 1946 and had one son Glen. Unfortunately that

happiness was short lived and she was widowed in 1952. Elsie was blessed

again and married Bill in 1958.  Bill brought Hugh to the family and Warren came along a few years later and the family was complete.  Elsie, Bill and the boys took the train across the country and moved to Vancouver in 1963, and finally to Kelowna in 1975.  She was widowed again and lost Bill in 1994.  Elsie is survived by her three sons Hugh (Shelly), Glen (Anne) and Warren, 9 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren. Please join us for tea at
