KLAUKE, Elsie of Wheatley

Posted by on March 17, 2016

Paper photo Klauke, ElsieMay 30, 1937 – March 14, 2016
Will be remembered for her giggles and deep ‘everything-she-had’ hugs; for her zwieback and borscht on her open table through her open door; for her deep delight in children, and care of those needing love; for yahtzee and dominos; for the quirky-shaped cucumber seconds she sold to raise money for charities; for traveling across the province to support church initiatives and sell fair-trade goods; for her role as family ‘glue’; for her hard work in all she undertook; for her pastoral care to seniors. All these stemmed from her long-formed faith in God, her deep love of Jesus, her humble reliance on the completing work of the Holy Spirit.
As a refugee through the turmoil of WWII, by grace and creative resourcefulness, her family eked out survival through the former Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, Germany, Paraguay, and Brazil until they settled in Canada. Born to Frank and Elfrieda Neufeld, she married Gerhard Klauke in Hamilton at age 20, and at 34, made her final home in Wheatley, Ontario. She looked out for her siblings Katie, Adina, the late Betty, and Frank. Dear mother to Diana, Sieglinde, David, Ellen and Tim, and mother-in-law to Keith & Mike, Jerry, Sandy, Rick and Rosemary, she was the proud Oma to 15, and (great) Oma to another 15! And even more mothering love was leftover for many who valued her caring initiative.
Her loss is grieved, but her presence with Jesus en route to a new creation is cause for much rejoicing.
Visitation at Reid Funeral Home, 14 Russell Street, Leamington (519-326-2631), Thursday, March 17, 2016, 3-8 pm with funeral service and luncheon at Leamington United Mennonite Church, 78 Oak Street E, Leamington, Friday, March 18, 2016, noon with interment at Erie Cemetery, Wheatley to follow.
