It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Elnor Theresa Metzner (nee Kuntz) on April 28th, 2023 at the Royal Inland Hospital, after a hard fought battle with cancer.

Elnor is predeceased by her mother and father, Pauline and Arnold Kuntz, and infant sister Estelle Kuntz.

She leaves behind her beloved husband of 62 years, Dale Edward Metzner; her sons Neil (Tracy), Bill (Shelley) and their families; her daughter Paula and grandchildren Brayden and Reanna, as well as many cousins and friends.

Elnor was born and raised in Morris, Manitoba, where she attended Morris High School. She went to the University of Manitoba, where she earned a degree in Home Economics. Elnor and Dale were married June 10th, 1961 in Morris. In 1966, Elnor and Dale made some big changes when they moved from Manitoba to British Columbia.

Elnor was an extraordinary woman and mother of 3 who wore many hats such as part-time school teacher, seamstress, and upholsterer. She was always an active member of the community, volunteering with the church, the hospital auxiliary, and the altar guild.

We will all miss Elnor dearly.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Diabetes Society of Canada.

The family would like to invite all to attend a Celebration of Life to be held June 10th, 2023 at 2:00pm at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 815 Renfrew Ave, Kamloops, BC.
