Elaine Patricia Welch

March 12, 1926October 7, 2019

Can a woman who chooses to leave this world to the sound of the Rolling Stones playing, Get Off of My Cloud and Start Me Up, truly be said to have died peacefully? Well, she did.

Surrounded by family and friends who could be there, after having lived a life of 93 years about as fully as one could imagine, our mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend has moved on to whatever follows.

We would honour her legacy best by living our own lives as thoughtfully, creatively, adventurously, and as lovingly as Elaine has lived hers.

She was predeceased by her husband David, and is survived by children Tony (Lois), Heather (James) and Nicholas; grandchildren Brian, Quinn (Anna), Hilary, Amanda and Justin (Sherry); great-grandchildren Austin and Kyleigh; sister Barb; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Special thanks to the staff of the Rosewood Residence and the wonderful caring staff of Get U There.


  • A Family Service will be held at a later date.
