McNeil, Mary Elizabeth

Mrs. Mary Elizabeth (Elsie) McNeil of Fort Macleod, beloved wife of the late Mr. Donald McNeil, passed away at Fort Macleod Extendicare on Monday, March 29, 2010, at the age of 83 years.
Elsie was born on the family farm to Hazel and John (Jack) Foot on Jan. 27, 1927. Elsie was schooled by her mother wherever she was teaching, whether it was on the farm or a variety of school houses in the area. Together Elsie and Donald took over the family farm in 1955, which the family has had since 1896, where she resided until moving to Macleod Pioneer Lodge and then to Fort Macleod Extendicare. Elsie enjoyed farm life, having many cats, dogs, horses and always being able to garden. Elsie also enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, playing cards, especially solitaire and crib. The odd time she would let you win a game of crib. We will always remember her real sour cream cookies, playing with the kitties and picking buffalo beans.
Elsie is survived by her children Mary and Alan McNeil; grandchildren Billi (Curtis) and their daughter Abigail, Tavis (Tami) and their son Lucca; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families. Besides her husband Don, Elsie is predeceased by her sister Isabelle (Ole) Brekke and her parents Hazel and John Foot.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7, 2010, at Eden’s Funeral Home, Fort Macleod, 2424 Fifth Ave., with Rev. Eras Van Zyl, officiating.
