Obituary for Elsa Margaret Felbel

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Oma and Grandma on May 11, 2020 at the age of 87.

On July 23, 1932 in a garden on the farm in a community near Beinfait, Saskatchewan, Elsa was born to Adolph and Bertha (Bauch) Bohn. She was the 14th child to her parents. Upon the death of her mother the day after her birth, Elsa was taken in and raised by foster parents, Wilhelm and Bertha Weidner.

At the age of 3 years old, with the Weidner family, she moved to Moosehorn, Manitoba where she grew up and attended school. She worked at the Moosehorn Hotel as a chamber maid/cook and was housekeeper for the Cuthbert family until marrying the love of her life Fred and moving to the city in 1952.

When her two younger children were well into school, she started working for Ludwick Catering and retired after approximately 20 years with them. Elsa enjoyed spending her time going to the theatre, quilting, knitting baby outfits, sewing and being very involved in the life of Faith Lutheran Church, which she was a member of for over 50 years.

She is survived by her children Doreen (Norm), Darren (Mona), Deanna (Doug) and Denise; grandchildren Amanda, Tracy (Carlin), Adam (Juline), Rachel, Ivan and Isabel; sister Nata; sisters-in-law Evelyn Bohn, Irene Weidner and Florence Felbel; brother-in-law Emil (Sophie) Felbel; and many nieces and nephews.

Elsa was predeceased by her loving husband of 67 years, Frederick (Fred) Felbel; her parents and foster parents; 12 siblings and 11 foster siblings; many sisters-in-law and brothers-in-laws; and grandchildren, Emily and Samuel.

Thank you to Dr. Cameron Lowden, Dr. Don Houston, Nurse Frances and all the other Palliative Care nurses and staff for all your remarkable care and support. Mom so appreciated what you have done for her.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date when circumstances allow.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Elsa may be made to the Faith Lutheran Church Memorial Fund, 1311 Dakota Street, Winnipeg MB R2N 1V8.
