Elsie Lydia (nee Allen) Saundry

April 4, 1914 ~ January 24, 2017

Elsie Lydia Saundry passed away peacefully on January 24, 2017 at Menno Hospital, Abbotsford. She was predeceased by her husband of 68 years Ivor, son Doug, grandson Dean, and siblings Doris, Bill and John. She is survived by her sons, Ivor (Roseanne), Ken (Marilyn), daughter-in-law-Sandra (Doug), plus many grand and great grandchildren. Elsie was born in London, England and emigrated to Canada in 1920, living first in Brandon and settling in Vancouver in 1926. She married Ivor in 1943 moving to Richmond in 1949, together raising three active boys. Elsie possessed a bright sense of humour and an amazing memory which she retained right up to the end. She was the leading lady of the family, intelligent, firm but kind and considerate, and most of all, loved and respected. Elsie completed her 102 years with a clear mind and a full heart. She will be greatly missed. Many thanks to the staff of Menno Hospital for their wonderful care of Elsie.
