- from Gord Deans:
On Behalf of Ken, Shelley, Barb and the Fisher family.
Thank you for all of the kind condolences and remembrances that you
have sent by email. Each was printed individually and presented to
Ken and the family at the funeral yesterday for their Book of
Rev. Canon Nick Wells provided a beautiful and loving funeral service
which captured the essence of Elsie and was exactly what she would
have wished for. The casket was escorted from the building by four
honourary pall-bearers from HMS Charwell, HMS Ferret and the
Provincial Marine to traditional tunes by a fifer and followed by a
procession of uniformed reenactors representing the many time periods
and units that Elsie and Ken were associated with.
Our Admiral, Our General, Our Master of Ordnance -- her spirit will
live on forever in our hearts.
"Pipe the Still, All Hands ..."
