Elsie E Nimetz


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.

For Elsie’s family,

Please accept my sincere sympathy on the death of your mother. Elsie was like a ray of sunshine, in part “due to her beautiful infectious smile”. was the best neighbour my mum could have had at Knox Met Manor. Mum, Doris Mackay, moved in right across the hall – we think in 1990 and was there for 10 years.

Elsie loved to cook and to share and my mum was the happy and grateful recipient! Elsie had a great sense of humour and enjoyed laughing when my husband (Jerry) would tease her.

They checked on each other, shared the Edmonton Journal and occasional visits. Elsie often asked mum is she needed anything from Safeway and was happy to oblige. Elsie’s being across the hall brought comfort and security to my mum as well as us. She was a king and thoughtful lady, as well as a “goer and a doer:.

Wishing you joy, laughter and tears as your family remembers and shares memories. May the caring of friends and the love of family bring you strength for the present and the many memories of a well-lived long life, along with the passage of time bring you peace.

Sharing your sorrow,
Barbara Wright

Elsie was the most straight-forward person I have met, she called a Spade a Spade. Besides that, she had a very soft heart for those who had the opportunity of knowing her. Her smile and humor were out of this world. She was ready to help no matter what the situation was, as long as you told her the truth. Thanks for your help and friendship.We will always love you for all that you were and more. We miss you.

My sympathy goes out to Betty and her family. I met Elsie a few times when I came out to Edmonton to visit Betty and my Dad. She was a funny lady and I liked her right away.

I always got a kick out of Elsie when she was so blattenly honest. She called it how she saw it. Now if you know Elsie, she did it out of love. The last time I saw Elsie was at Uncle Walters 100 birthday and thank god I got to see her then. I must have had too much eyeliner on because she told me to not do that again, I look hard. Maybe it was a little thicker than I normally wear so after that I made sure I did what Elsie had told me. You got to love her for that. I always got a kick out of her. She actually called me around 2 months ago and we had a very nice chat. I was surprised she made a point of calling me personally. I always adored that woman. She will be sooooo missed. Love her.
