Elsie Jean McColeman passed away suddenly on December 18, 2013 at Our Lady of the Rosary Hospital in Castor at the age of 63 years. She was born in that same hospital on October 30, 1950 to parents Margaret and Charles McColeman. Elsie grew up in the Halkirk area and attended school until grade eight, when she left to help her mother with chores on the farm. For a short time she helped various families with babysitting and house work. Her most loved passion was Bingo and the Halkirk Bullarama, she would enjoy the entire weekend, not missing an event. She will be remembered for her quietness, kindness and having a Pepsi and Aero bar in her hand. She will be missed by all those that knew her.
Elsie will be lovingly remembered by her sister Rose McColeman of Halkirk, AB, nephew Charlie (Nicole) Taylor and their daughter Michelle of Red Deer, AB; numerous cousins, aunts and extended family and a host of many friends.
Funeral services were held at the Community Church in Halkirk on January 6, 2014 with Pastor Jim Culham officiating. Organist Linda Chick played for the hymns that Rose chose for her sister’s service. Interment took place in Halkirk Cemetery with Pallbearers being her close neighbours and friends. Friends gathered in the Halkirk Hall for a time of fellowship and a luncheon by the Halkirk Hall Board.
