Peacefully on Sunday evening, March 4, 2012, surrounded by her loving family. With the love and tireless support of her partner Dan Deslippe, Elfi faced her long battle with cancer with great courage and grace. Elfi was the daughter of Elisabeth Haas and the late Konrad Haas. The loss of her youngest child was heart-breaking for her mother. The chief joy of Elfi’s life was her children. She was immensely proud of Adam (Kelly), Shannon and Heidi. Their mother’s love and guidance will stay with them always. Elfi was part of a close and loving family and will always live in the hearts of her big sisters Heidi (Ed), and Traudi (Dane), her niece Thea (Ron) and nephews David (Sarah) and Ryan (Chivi). She will be remembered with great affection by Chuck Reeb, Susan and Rob Farough and the extensive Reeb clan. Elfi was a long-time employee of United Communities Credit Union and will be fondly remembered by her friends and many of the members there. The family is grateful to Elfi’s medical team (VON and Hospice) for their care and compassion. Cremation has taken place. Memorial Visitation Thursday from 2-5 & 7-9 p.m. at the Kennedy Funeral Home Ltd. (519-776-7378) 128 Talbot St. North, Essex.
