It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our devoted wife and loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother Margaret Elaine Fenske (Fife) has passed peacefully on December 21, 2020 at the age of 85 years, at Citadel Care Centre, St. Albert, Alberta.

Lovingly remembered and cherished by her husband of 63 years, Doug;  children Deborah (Robert), Cathy (Adrian), Rob (Holly);  grandchildren Krista (Eric), Karyn (Karl), Kyle (Jessica), Todd (Katie), Evan (Angela), Amie (Jared), Meghan (Noel), Taylor, and Jaxon; affectionately remembered as Little GG by great-grandchildren Jovie, Carwin, Holden, Korben, Hadley, Carys, Paige, and Mira.  Also survived by siblings Patricia, Lorne, Catherine, Marilyn, and many nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by brothers Robert and Ken.

Elaine was a sweet, kind, and gentle soul who loved to spend time with her family.  She enjoyed gardening and spending time at the cottage.  She was a gifted seamstress and loved crocheting and knitting.  In her later years, Elaine loved to dance and loved to listen to music.

We extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Rick Neuls and all the staff at the Citadel Care Centre for the kindness, love, and care shown to Elaine during her time there, especially during these difficult Covid times.

As per Elaine’s wishes, cremation has taken place.  When it is safe for all of us to be together again, a family celebration of Elaine’s life will take place.  Mom, you will be lovingly remembered and forever in our hearts.
