Vera Ione Elkes (nee Newman)
November 24, 1933 - December 28, 2019.

Our Mother, Grandmother, Nana and Aunt, our Friend.

It is with deep sadness in our hearts that we announce the passing of our Mother on December 28, at age 86 years. After falling and breaking her hip, she slipped away quickly and unexpectedly. My sons, Evan (Kristi), Cole, Cameron, my daughter Miranda, and granddaughter Julia were stunned by the passing of their Granny, aka Nana. My sister, Linda (Ray) was there beside Mom, in the hospital when she died. Linda had to go home and console her children Ryan, Sean (Kori), and grandchildren, Dylan, Hunter and Gabrielle. My brother's children Alan (Jenn), Cory (Moriah), and granddaughter Melody will be missing Gramma Elkes as well.

Mom was predeceased by her husband, Fred, son Scott and grandson Kyle.

Mom spent most of her life in the Canadian Forces, first as an enlisted woman, then as the wife of an AirForce man. She was always a strong and beautiful person with a great personality and will be sorely missed by so many friends and family.
