Elin Mae Normand (nee Nelson)
1963 - 2021

On April 24, 2021, Elin passed away peacefully guided by her guardian angel to rest in the gardens of heaven.

Elin was predeceased by her mother, Sarah Nelson, father Charles Vanmeer, grandtwins Charlie August and Charlie Day Nelson, sisters Madge Nelson and Linda Elias, brother Jimmy Vanmeer, niece Celene Miles, nephew Benjamin Warren, and brother-in-law Steve Dilay.

Elin will be remembered by her forever love of her life Dale, son Charlie, grandson Chaz, her siblings, Lillian, Edith (Bob), Linda (Tom), Wilma (Dave), Pat (Bernie), Bill (Olivia), Charlene, John (Bev), her mother and father-in-law Rita and Clifford, brother-in-law Darren (Marie) along with many nephews, nieces, and dear friends.

Elin’s life treasure was finding her soul mate at an early age, and she and Dale enjoyed a beautiful 40 years of bountiful happiness. Elin was a happy, caring, and exceptional person whose family and friends gave her reason to smile, laugh and sometimes cry. Family was Elin’s happy place, her everything. Her fondest moments were times shared with her family and friends where you could always count on her meeting you with her captivating smile and girlish giggle, a greeting that let you know you were special to her.

Cremation has taken place and we will celebrate Elin’s life at a later date. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Riverview Palliative Care for the compassionate care and comfort during her final days.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Elin’s honour to Siloam Mission.
