It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Elvira Cann (nee Wechreschuk), peacefully at the St. Boniface Palliative Care Unit, with family at her side.

Elvira was predeceased by her husband Gordon; her parents, Zacharko and Eudochia; her siblings, Steve, Mary (Steve) Kowalchuk, Mike (Rose), John, Anne (Peter) Miller, Nellie (Lloyd) Seifert, Shirley (Emanuel) Biedler; and her niece Sharon Seifert. She will be remembered by friends and many nieces and nephews who she loved and was loved by.

We extend our warmest thanks to the special care givers at Lions Manor 6th Floor, Misericordia Health Centre, St. Boniface Emergency and Palliative Care Units for their attention and kindness to both Elvira and her family.

As per Elvira’s wishes, cremation has taken place, and her ashes will be interred at the Sandhills Cemetery in a simple graveside service in the Spring 2024.

In memory of Elvira, donations may be made to a charity or humanitarian organization of one’s choice.
