Elsie Audrey Singleton

SINGLETON, Elsie Audrey

It is with great sadness, we announce that Elsie Singleton passed away peacefully in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on Saturday, January 23, 2016.

She was born in Coal Creek BC on August 27, 1934 to Bernard and Phyllis Anderson, their only child. She grew up on the Dairy and Stock farm on Cokato Road.

She leaves behind her loving husband of 60 years, Jim Singleton of Vernon; 3 children: Lynn (Eustace) Gonsalvez of Vernon, Denise (John) Barkemeyer of Lacombe AB, and Alan Singleton of Calgary AB; 4 grandchildren: Jason (Janice) Mace of Vernon BC, Kevin (Dawn) Mace of Vernon BC, Kristian (Heather) Barkemeyer of Red Deer AB, Scott Barkemeyer of Vancouver BC; 3 great grandchildren: Alora, Kelton, and Spencer; and other family and friends.

Elsie enjoyed cooking and baking for family and friends. After she retired as a Librarian at the Fernie Heritage Library, she spent countless hours volunteering in the community at the Library, Rocky Mountain Village, and the Red Cross medical equipment lending service.

It was Elsie’s wish that there be no service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC or the Cranbrook SPCA.

Arrangements had been entrusted to Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, Phone: 250 542 4333.
