ELEANOR (ELLY) BLOCH (nee ZALISKO) Passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 7, 2007 at the Betel Home in Selkirk, MB. Elly was born on July 10, 1915, the daughter of the late Julian and Mary Zelisko. She was predeceased by her husband Robert Bloch in 1994 as well as five brothers and four sisters. She is survived by her step-daughter Sally Francy of Los Gatos, CA; and sister-in-law Jean Zalisko of St John's, IN. She will be sadly missed by caregivers, Myrna Unik and Lorna Kazuk of Selkirk as well as three generations of nieces and nephews and her beloved cat BoBo. She will be missed by lifelong friends, Mary Kay Stearns, Anne Erickson and Lil Neville of Los Angeles, CA. Elly moved to Winnipeg from Los Angeles in 2002 to the delight of her Canadian family who came to cherish her beautiful heart, keen intellect and sense of humour, which remained until the end. Throughout her life Elly had a remarkable gift of making every person she met feel special. Each of us in some way were influenced by this talented, loving, strong woman. Her memory and her legacy will be cherished. A private family memorial service will be held after which family members will transport her ashes to be laid to rest with her husband Bob in Los Angeles. The family wish to thank Dr. Lindenschmidt and Dr. Demsas, the staff at Amber Meadows, the wonderful nursing crew at the Betel Nursing home, and roommate Shirley Kalawarny for their special concern. A special thank-you to Elly's friend Helen Christiansen. Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of arrangements.
