REMPEL, Elsie Diane
It is with a mixture of sadness and joy we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother. Surrounded by family, Elsie went to her home with the Lord on August 5, 2013 at the Christine Morrison Hospice. She was predeceased by her husband, Peter, her son, Ken, baby sister Mary and brothers Henry and John. Elsie will be dearly missed by Lois (Stan) Friesen, Stan (Karin) Rempel, Rita (Ron) Janischewski, Georgia Rempel, 15 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. Elsie was born on April 22, 1925 in Janzen, Saskatchewan and moved to B.C. in 1937. She was a long time member of Cedar Valley Mennonite Church in Mission. She accepted Jesus as her saviour in her youth and was baptized at 18 upon confession of her faith. She trusted in Jesus throughout her life and also in death. The family gives a special thank you to the staff at the Tertiary Care Unit at ARH and the staff at CMH for their tender care of our mother. Elsie was interred at the Hatzic Cemetery on August 12, 2013 followed by a celebration of life at Cedar Valley Mennonite Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Canadian Bible Society or MCC.
