1926 ~ 2015
The family wishes to express their deepest sorrow over the passing of Elsie Chryplywy, peacefully on Thursday, January 29, 2015.
Elsie was predeceased by her beloved husband Steve; her parents Harry and Mary as well as her sister Anne and brother John.
Elsie will be lovingly remembered by her son Wes; his wife Anne and grandsons Steven and Michael; Her daughter Cathy; husband Randy and grandchildren Jonathan, Andrew, Jennifer, David and Keith. Elsie was very proud to be a grandmother as well as a great grandmother.
Elsie was born in Brokenhead, MB on the family farm. She married Steve Chryplywy in 1952 and together they raised two children, Wes and Cathy.
Mom was proud of her family. She enjoyed preparing wonderful homemade meals and most of the food was from her large garden which she worked hard to maintain. If something had to be planned or done, mom was usually the first to take action. She had a strong work ethic and loved to keep busy. Mom enjoyed music and dancing in her younger years and could even play the Harmonica. She would often lend a hand to those in need and was a good friend to many people. Mom was a long time member of her church and was involved in the Church activities. Her undying faith remained a comfort to her throughout her life.
Special thanks to the staff of East Gate Lodge in Beausejour, MB for all of their excellent care and support to mom. A heartfelt mention to mom’s sisters Teenie Gmiterik and Margaret Chorney for their unconditional love and loyalty.
Mom has now joined her loving “Stevco” and together they are at peace.
Prayers will be sung at Sobering Funeral Chapel on Friday evening, February 6 at 7:30 p.m. Divine Liturgy will be celebrated the following day, Saturday, February 7 at Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church in Beausejour, MB at 10:30 a.m. Reception will be at the Sunova Room in the Sun Gro Centre following the funeral service.
