GILLBERG, Elizabeth ~ Feb. 29, 1916 ~ April 27, 2014. Elizabeth (Elsie) Gillberg, nee Hanuszak passed away peace-fully in her 98th year. Born in Rosthern, SK, she was pre- deceased by her husband of 64 years, Herbert (Tiny) Gillberg, son Robert Gail (Robbie), brothers Mike, Carl, Bill and sisters Isobel and Mary. Mom is lovingly missed by daughters Donna (Ernie) Morelli and Linda (Milton) Pearson, also daughter-in- law Verna Blackwell (Robbie). Grandma is also dearly missed by her 5 grandchildren, Mathew (Gina) Gillberg, Lisa (Terry) Mellett, Martin (Jenny) Pearson, Mindy (Victor) Gratwicke and Bradley Morelli. 6 great grandchildren include Ryan and Adam Gillberg, Scott Mellett, Dylan and Skye Gratwicke and newest addition, baby Noah Pearson. Elsie loved and enjoyed family gatherings and was the envy of the neighborhood with her love for gardening, especially for the beautiful flowers she grew. Other hobbies she enjoyed were bowling, sewing, reading and her love for birds and animals. Vacations to Europe and many other places were also enjoyed by her and Tiny during their 64 years of marriage. Her smile and gentle nature did not go unnoticed by the staff at Tabor Home, whom the family sincerely thanks for the kind and compassionate care shown to Elsie during her time with them, especially her final days.
