ELSA (ELSIE) LEIMAN (published on April 10, 2010)

ELSA (ELSIE) LEIMAN It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce the sudden passing of Elsie Leiman (nee Ehmann) of Selkirk at the Betel Home. She went home to be with the Lord at age 88 on April 6, 2010. Elsie was predeceased by her husband Jacob in 1992, her sister Olga (1965) and brother Robert (2009), along with her parents Adolf and Martha Ehmann. Elsie will be sadly missed by her son Allen (Laura), grandchildren Courtney (25), Christine (20), Brock (15), and daughter Debbie (Craig) Anderson and grandchildren Michele (22) (Justin Hintz), Megan (20) and Caitlyn (16). Elsie is survived by her four brothers all of Winnipeg: Otto (Herta), Edmund (Frieda), Emil, Arthur (Muriel). Elsie is also survived by her sisters-in-law Ann Lawson, Mel (Norm) Warren, Janice Leiman, two brothers-in-law Henry (Lil) Leiman and Bill (Bonnie) Leiman, along with many nieces and nephews. Elsie was born March 17, 1922 in Poland. She immigrated to Canada after being forced out of her homeland by the war with her sister and four brothers in 1951. Elsie met Jack and married in 1953 and settled in Tyndall, MB. They moved to Selkirk in 1961 where they raised their family. Mom and Dad kept the farm in Tyndall where they travelled back and forth from Selkirk to enjoy farming and gardening. She loved her family and enjoyed when her children and grandchildren visited. Mom was always preparing fresh foods from her garden and trying out several tasty recipes! Elsie and Jack were always active members in their churches, first the Lutheran Good Shepherd and then Bethel Chapel, where they enjoyed fellowship with the Lord and their many friends. Her honorary pallbearers will be her brothers: Art, Otto, Emil and Edmund Ehmann. Active pallbearers will be Brock Leiman, Barry Leiman, Ronald Ehmann, Elliott Ehmann, Dennis Fuerst and Justin Hintz. A private funeral service for family and friends will be held Sunday, April 11 at 4:00 p.m. at Bethel Chapel, 200 Main Street, Selkirk, MB with Pastor Jeff Romas officiating. We wish to extend thanks and appreciation to all of the staff at the Selkirk Betel Foundation who provided care for Mom these past five years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Bethel Chapel, 200 Main Street, Selkirk, MB R1A 1R9. Rock Fontaine, in care of arrangements, phone 1-204-223-2576.
