Elsie (Bubbles) Winnifred WATHEN

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, February 28, 2016, 1:00 – 3:00 pm at the Royal Canadian

Legion in Port Alberni.

On December 25, 2015 Elsie went to spend Christmas with her Lord and Savior. Elsie was born on June 18, 1924 in England and came to Alberta, Canada as a child.

It was in Alberta that she grew up, married, raised her sons and retired. She moved to Port Alberni in 2007 to be closer to her family.

She was preceded by her son Richard in 1966 and her husband Robert in 1991. Survived by son Bill (Moira), granddaughters Caroline (Paul) Sorensen and Heather (Jamie) Skipper and one great-granddaughter Aline Sorensen. Also survived by her two sisters Helen Miles and Lettie (Butch) Higgins and many nieces and nephews and friends.

The family will be forever thankful that Elsie’s last days were made more comfortable by West Coast General Hospital, Rainbow Gardens and Dr. Puts.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
