Kathleen Elves Obituary

Elves (Eyre), Kathleen Margaret – Passed away peacefully on Sunday May 21, 2023 at Hospice Peterborough in her 81st year.  Beloved wife of Christopher Elves for 56 years, loving mother of Alison Payne (Harley) and Carole Johnston (Russ).  Best grandma to Sarah, Emily, Charlotte and Olivia. Kathleen will be greatly missed by her family in England including Irene, Peter, Sean, Karen, John, Michael, Pat and their families. Also missed by her grand-dogs Henry and Finley and her wonderful friends Jan, Phil, George, Eleanor, Bryce, Elizabeth and Joyce (predeceased).

Born and raised in Stalybridge, England, Kathleen was actively involved in her local church where she met Chris. After moving to Cornwall, London, and then back to Stalybridge they emigrated to Peterborough in 1974.  Their love for travel resulted in many family trips and countless memories.

Kathleen enjoyed spending time with her family, coffee with friends, Christmas Tree chopping down parties, walks on our local trails and relaxing with a good book on their deck.

Special thank you to Dr. Christopher Blake and the staff and volunteers at Hospice Peterborough for their care and compassion.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Hospice Peterborough or the Canadian Cancer Society (Colon Cancer Research).

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
