Obituary for Michael George Elson


We are sad to announce that our dear Mike passed away on November 1, 2023 with his loving family by his side, at the age of 76.

Left to mourn is the love of his life, his wife Barb, and his loving dog, Daisy. He also leaves behind his devoted family whom he loved so much, his brother Ron Elson (Karen); his nieces Alison Stonehouse, Jo-Anne Flaten (Brett), Sarah Carter (Brent): and great-nieces and nephews, Logan, Wyatt, Rebecca; along with many friends, neighbours, and colleagues.

Mike went to Tec Voc. where he completed his Fire Alarm Technician Program, which led him through his career working at Simplex and Vipond until his retirement. His favourite pastime was watching his sports.

A luncheon to celebrate his life will take place on Friday, November 24, 2023 at noon, at E.J. Coutu Funeral Home, located at 680 Archibald Street.

The family would like to thank the health care teams of Seven Oaks Hospital, Health Science Centre, and Riverview for all their compassion and care for Mike.

Donations in Mike’s memory may be made to CancerCare Manitoba, or Winnipeg Humane Society.

A family graveside service will be held in the Spring at the family plot in Minnedosa, Manitoba.
