Elaine Margaret Chambers (Dale, Maduik) 1948 — 2021

Elaine Margaret Chambers       (Dale, Maduik)

It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of our wonderful Mother on June 13th, 2021 after her long battle with lung cancer. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Mom lived in Kamloops from the age of 10.  She leaves to mourn her children  Raelle (Mitch) Kendall, Maxine Boisclair,  Jim (Jessica) Chambers and Elaine (Gerry) Klein and her beloved grandchildren Mishel, Connor, Braden, Josh, Jacob, Shae, Mckayla, Kyliegh, Ashley, Broden, Hunter, James, Julia, Jillene and Brody and great grandchildren Charlie, Taz, Elaina, Silas, Amelia, Wynn, Lyanna. She was the world’s best ‘Nana’.

She also leaves behind her brother Jim ( Pat) Dale and sister Sharon Roblin, numerous nieces and nephews as well as cherished members of the Maduik and Chambers families. Friends dear to her heart were numerous. Her deep connection with Dolores Daoust and Marlene Sharpe cannot go without special mention. Mom worked as an MOA for Dr. Simon Treissman with whom she had a special bond.  She retired in 2010.

Mom was a very loving, fun, attractive, intelligent, athletic woman who always supported her friends and family.   She travelled quite extensively and was also much admired by the local pickleball community as a gracious player who was also quick to volunteer.   A devoted sports fan, her life revolved around playing sports and most notably cheering on those she loved. Her grandchildren meant the world to her and she was ‘Center Stage’ in their lives.

She was predeceased by her sister Diana and her husband Doug whose adventures together over the years with the BC Trapper’s association, were epic.

Mom was a very kind, cordial woman and she was dignified and stoic in the face of her diagnosis, right up until her passing.  We will never forget how deeply she impacted all of our lives and we will miss her always.   Please join us for an open house, outdoor celebration of Mom’s life on June 27th at her home, 405 McGowan Avenue, from 11 till 3. Covid protocols will be in place.

Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com
