Elsie was born in Loughheed, Alberta on September 18, 1923. She moved to Vernon in 1945 and started a family with her first husband Jim Harvey. Elsie was an excellent seamstress and sewed right up to the end. She was a fantastic cook and baker. She could make a meal from nothing and feed a roomful. The kids and grandkids never went away hungry.
Elsie married Robert Brace and spent many years in the Little Fort area before relocating to Vernon again.
Mom had a marvelous sense of humor and enjoyed the occasional brew (I think). Elsie was predeceased by husband Bob Brace, granddaughter Tracey Harvey and grandson Wade Harvey. She is survived by son Dale Harvey and family from Vernon, son Allen Harvey and family from Langley, daughter Alice Forbes and family from Vernon, stepdaughter Fay Redford and family from Soldotna Alaska, and stepdaughter Maureen Gustafson and family from Langley. Elsie will be sadly missed by all her extended family. A memorial service will be held in the Chapel of Vernon Funeral Home Tuesday January 5, 2016 at 1:00 PM with Brian Jackson officiating. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
