We Remember

NEUGEBAUR, Elsie Katherine

May 27, 1925 — October 31, 2021

With great sadness, we announce the loss of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. On October 31, 2021, Elsie Neugebaur passed away peacefully, at the age of 96.

Elsie and her late twin brother, Ernie, were born in Govan, SK, to John & Katherine Haus. Elsie met Harry Neugebaur, and they married on May 3, 1947, they took over the Neugebaur Family Farm in Saskatchewan. Family was everything to Elsie, she was sweet, kind, and never forgot a birthday or anniversary. She was also hardworking, even after she and Harry retired to Kelowna, BC in 1979, she became a dedicated volunteer for the Ladies Auxiliary at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 26 (Kelowna). When she wasn’t giving her time to others, she enjoyed fishing and camping, if she was at home she loved to bake.

Elsie goes to join her family that has gone before her: her parents John & Katherine Haus; brothers Albert, Ernie, Harold, and Lorne; sisters Alma and Irene; and her dear granddaughter Sandra. Those she leaves to mourn include her loving husband of 74 years, Harry; her children Murray, Marilyn (John) Pawelko, and Rodney (Jan); her grandchildren Josh, Jeff (Trisha), Cory (Mandy), Seth, Audrey (Chris), Tim (Lara), John Jr., Brett (Sarah), Tyler (David), Chaydyn, and Keigan; her great-grandchildren Julia, Nikolas, Jakob, Sam, Emily, Stephen, Catherine, Brett, Beatrix, and Burton; and her great-great-grandchild, Wynter. She will also be remembered by her siblings Herb (Bernice) Haus, Marlene Wilson, and Ken (Earleen) Haus; her sisters-in-law Hilda Bastin, Marlene Haus, and Marilyn Butler; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Elsie’s love and affection will be dearly missed.
