It is with great sadness we share the news of the peaceful passing of Elzbieta ‘Ela’ Jacewska, at the age of 64, on June 10, 2021, at the Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton, Canada. Ela was born on October 27, 1956 in Miejska Gorka to parents Jordan and Joanna Murlewski. She is survived by her husband Janusz, and her daughter Marta. She will be remembered by family in Poland and Germany and many friends and coworkers in Alberta.

Ela was happiest spending time outdoors whether she was camping, mushroom picking, or fishing. She also enjoyed time in her yard gardening and completing crossword puzzles.

A gathering to celebrate her life will be held at a later date. Donations can be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

A Mass will be held on Thursday June 17, 2021 at 9:15 a.m. (MDT) and due to restrictions attendance in-person will be arranged by invitation only. For those wishing to attend virtually the Mass will be live streamed online at www.hrp.ca.


Z wielkim żalem i smutkiem, ogłaszamy smierć Elżbiety Jacewskiej, która odeszła z tego świata 10 Czerwca 2021, mając 64 lat.  Odeszła spokoju, w obecności ukochanego męża i ukochanej córki, w szpitalu Misericordia, w Edmonton, Canada. Ela urodziła się w Miejskiej Górce, z rodziców Jordana i Joanny Murlewskich. Pozostawia męża Janusza i córkę Martę, oraz dalszą rodzine w Polsce i w Niemczech.

Ela najchętniej spędzała czas na świeżym powietrzu, czy to biwakując, łowiąc ryby, czy zbierając grzyby. Lubiła też spędzać czas w swoim ogrodzie i rozwiązywać krzyżówki.

Ela zostanie zapamiętana przez rodzinę oraz wielu przyjaciół i współpracowników. W późniejszym terminie odbędzie się spotkanie upamiętniające jej życie.

Dotacje można przekazać na rzecz Alberta Cancer Foundation.

  1. I will forever remember Ela as “Pani Mama” Our first encounter was in Mexico and I immediately enjoyed her authentic and honest attitude and her unique sass! It didn’t take long before she gained her nickname. As the week progressed it became a fun game between her and I. Back in Edmonton, I would often see her at Costco and I would always call out “Pani Mama!” to which she always came over for a hug and a chat. I’m grateful to have known her and enjoyed her company! To Janusz and Marta, I wish I could be there to pay my respects and give you each a huge hug! I hope and pray that you both can find peace in your hearts as you grieve the loss of Pani Mama! Marta, I love you times a million and I wish I could be there for you in person! Hopefully it won’t be too long until the next Pani Party and we can all surround you with love! Miss you so much my sweet friend! XO XO

  2. Ela was very kind to me when I transferred from BC to Albert. She was friendly and made me feel comfortable at work. She would let me know if the guys I worked with taught me a good or bad polish word! Lol. She saved me from some embarrassing moments! God Bless Ela.

  3. My deepest sympathy to Janusz and Marta.
    Ela has been my parents neighbors for many years.
    Ela has been such a kind friend and thoughtful neighbor. Ela would make a dish of food for my parents on many occasions. Ela would visit over the fence with my dad which helped brighten his day.
    Ela will be missed and her family are in our thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.

  4. I remember the wonderful chats we had over the neighbourhood fence. As I got to learn more about Ela, I discovered what a kind thoughtful person she was. Ela would even laugh at my Dad’s jokes. Ela’s big heart has left our hearts broken. We are so grateful to have met such a beautiful person.

  5. I only met ELA briefly as my parents’ neighbour but her impact on my life was huge. Her kindness and generosity towards my family – sausages, dessert, perogies – over the fence with laughter were stories I often heard from thousands of miles away. It was a comfort to know such good people were surrounding my parents. We all feel the loss when a bright light like ELA is gone. May you all find comfort in memories of such a loving wife, mother, and friend. In our thoughts and prayers.
