Elsie Elizabeth Nimetz (nee Karashowsky) passed away peacefully on Thursday,
November 28, 2013, in Edmonton at the age of 95 years.
Born in Calmar, AB, to Daniel and Anatasia (nee Karbonik) Karashowsky, Elsie was the
fourth of eleven children. She was predeceased by her husband, Joseph in 1989, and
is survived by brothers Walter, Ben and Eugene Karashowsky and sisters Nadia
Schlegel and Olga Martin.
Elsie was always full of life and energy and was known for her beautiful, infectious
smile. We will miss her words of wisdom, strong values and readiness to help when
needed. Her memory lives on with us in our hearts. She encouraged us to live our
life fully and like her, to do it in our own way.
The family would like to thank the team of nurses and caregivers for the wonderful
care, love and attention given to her at Capital Care Norwood.
Elsie is lovingly remembered and will be missed by her children and their spouses:
son, Barry (Ginette Lafreniere); daughters, Natalia Nimetz and Betty Newman-Jones;
granddaughters Chantel (David Schneider), Amber (Ryan Emery); grandson, Sheldon
Newman-Jones; great grandchildren Hannah and Emma, and Claire. Good family friends,
Fred and Susan Hartman, and Donna Short from Knox Met Manor, and many others.
Elsie’s wishes are that no formal funeral services will be held.
