Jan 27, 1921-May 28, 2013
With great sadness, the family announces the passing of Ellen Elizabeth Harold (Tilley) on May 28, 2013 in her 93rd year, at the Chilliwack General Hospital. A long time resident of Ottawa before moving to Chilliwack in 2005, Ellen was a remarkable and beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be forever missed by her son Don (Nancy) of Chilliwack; son David (Ann) of Kingston, Ontario and daughter, Susan (Syl) of Orleans, Ontario. Ellen is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren (soon to be 11) who loved her dearly. The family is very grateful for the exceptional care she received from the wonderful, kind and caring staff at the Chilliwack Hospital, the Birchwood Retirement Residence (2005-2009), and Eden Care Centre (2009-2013). A special thanks to Dr. Jones and Debbie and Jennifer of Eden Care Centre for their compassionate care and much appreciated assistance above and beyond the call of duty to Ellen and Don. Cremation has taken place. Service and interment at Capital Memorial Gardens near Ottawa will take place at a later date. For those who wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ellen’s name to the Parkinson Society, British Columbia or a charity of your choice.
