Wilson, Elsa Christina

April 20, 1917 - September 8, 2019

Obituary

Elsa Christina Skoglund was born to Anna and Gustaf Skoglund on April 20, 1917 in Hilltop, Manitoba. She was the third youngest of seven children.

On October 7, 1936, she married Floyd Wilson and in 1951 with their three children in tow, they left Manitoba for British Columbia and settled on a homestead on the shores of the Arrow Lakes near Needles, B.C.

Over the years, they lived at Emerald Townsite (above Salmo), Robson, Sooke and then finally settled in Nelson, B.C.

Elsa was a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother and the pillar of her family. She gave guidance, strength, and her knowledge of life and was a wonderful story teller. She was also the glue that bonded everyone together.

She was predeceased by her parents and all of her siblings, as well as her husband Floyd in 1987. She is survived by her three children, Anne Secord, Gil (Carole) Wilson, and Ralph (Marilyn) Wilson, as well as her eight grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, and twelve great-great-grandchildren.

She will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by her family and loved ones. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence.

From: Patrick Lloyd
Relation: Family friend

Condolences to Elsa family. I remember Elsa; our families were friends. I recall half listening to the many conversations she and my mother had during their “get togethers” at the “Mine” and later in Robson. I have fond memories of Elsa’s warmth and sense of humor and marvel at her longevity. I share her family’s sense of loss.

From: Kara Witcher
Relation: Anne Secord, her daughter is a friend of ours, and by extention so was she.

Elsa, touched many hearts, including ours. She was extremely cognizant even into her 100’s, sharp as a tack as they say. You will be sorely missed by me & Ray. Your loving nature toward all whom sought your counsel was appreciated. Rest in Peace Elsa.

From: Judith Marie Gusdal
Relation: She was my mother's sister, my precious aunt.

Hugs and condolences to Aunt Elsa’s family! She and I shared a birthday and I have fond memories of our celebratory phone calls, though we lived so far apart! She was a precious big sister to my mama. Much love from my family to yours! ❤️
