It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Ellie, on December 19th, 2011.
Everyone who knew Ellie can understand how our corner of the world is a dimmer place without her radiant smile, sunny disposition, charm, wit and exceptional beauty.
Ellie will be deeply missed and forever remembered by her two daughters, Sheryl Watt and Tracey Ruysenaars (Jeff); and beloved grandson, Jack. She was predeceased by the love of her life, Robert (Bob) Acheson.
We extend deepest gratitude to all the medical professionals who provided outstanding care and comfort to Ellie, especially Dr. Roberta Grynoch, whose professional guidance and compassion helped us through our darkest hours.
Family and friends are invited to attend a tribute to Ellie at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, January 16th, 2012, at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, 10065-100
Street, Edmonton. We ask that people send their favourite story about Ellie to firstname.lastname@example.org so that these stories can be shared at the tribute to her life well lived.
We graciously decline flowers. Instead, honour Ellie’s generous spirit by reaching out to someone in need.
