McMASTER, Elsie (nee Parton)



1928 - 2022

It is with great sadness that the family of Elsie McMaster announce her passing

on June 9, 2022 at the impressive age of 94. She leaves to mourn her loss, three

children: Laurie (Clarence) Assenheimer, Doug (Rita) McMaster and Noreen

(Alvin) Eyolfson; 8 grandchildren: Craig (Cheryl), Grant (Chantelle Leidl),

Jill (Dave), Kevin (Stephanie), Jennifer(Alix), Nicole (Patrick), Eric and Garth (Lyndal).

She also leaves 9 great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Conrad McMaster,

his brothers and their wives, Rod (Jessie) and Murray (Jean), her sister,

Isabel (Bob), her parents: Alma and Alfred Parton, her parents in law:

Charles and Lauretta McMaster.

Elsie was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, and teacher for

30+ years. Elsie and her husband lived in Manola for 20 years where he

operated a fuel agency and she taught school. They moved to Westlock

where she lived for another 50 years. As our families grew, so did her

love and support grow for each new addition. She lost her beloved

husband in 2011. She was healthy and lived alone on her acreage near

Westlock until October when her health started to fail. We all have fond

memories of special times with her at meals on holidays, camping

trips, fi shing trips, trips to Mexico and Hawaii, ball games, ice cream

cones on hot summer days and popcorn on cold evenings and cinnamon

buns on every occasion. She was an avid reader, a fi erce scrabble player

but we most remember her love for gardening and the countless pails

of raspberries that she picked and shared with us. We will treasure our

memories of her and will try to live up to her legacy.

At her request, there will be no funeral. Donations in her memory can be

made to a charity of ones choice.
