Elgie, Gloria Yvonne

Elgie, Gloria Yvonne, passed away from the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home in Kamloops on Monday, November 17, 2014 at the age of 73 years.

Gloria was a longtime resident of the Ashcroft area, also having lived some years in Savona, and Kamloops. She had a wonderful, and sometimes inappropriate, sense of humour, that was quick to put a smile on someone’s face. She had a great love of music, and in the 70’s played guitar and sang in a band with her husband Jack. Always an animal lover, Gloria could be found both hand feeding, and tending to feeders for area birds and squirrels.

Gloria is survived by her loving children David (Deb) Elgie of Ashcroft. BC, and Lorne (Liz) Elgie of Comox, as well as by her grandchildren Devin of Ashcroft and Whitney May of Edmonton. She was predeceased by Jack, her loving husband of 44 years and by their daughters Sharon and Janine and grand-daughter Jessie.

Mass of Christian Burial was held at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, November 22, 2014 from St. Gerard’s Roman Catholic Church, Ashcroft. Burial immediately followed at the Cache Creek Cemetery.

Donations in memory of Gloria may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 857 Seymour Street Kamloops, BC V2C 2H6.
