DELLA ELIZABETH METCALFE Peacefully on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at the Golden Door Geriatric Centre, Winnipeg, MB, Della Elizabeth Metcalfe of Winnipeg, formerly of Portage la Prairie, passed away at the age of 98 years. Della was born in rural Portage on September 26, 1914, daughter of Frank and Elizabeth Metcalfe. She was educated at Central School and later PCI. She had been affiliated with the Grace United Church until its union with Knox United Church. In her youth, Della was a very proficient ice skater and regularly attended the old rink on Gaddy Street. Skating was a pastime she enjoyed very much. She had worked for Roland Dann in his dry cleaning and tailor establishment for a period before she helped her father for 20 years to operate Metcalfe's Taxi. Those were rewarding years for her and she had the opportunity to meet many fine people. Predeceased by her parents, her brother Ferris, her sister and brother-in-law Aileen and Roy Hambleton, she leaves to mourn her nephew Frank Hambleton and family of Winnipeg. In accordance to her wishes, cremation has taken place and a graveside service will be held at Hillside Cemetery on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. I have run the race. I have kept the faith. I have done my best. Condolences may be sent to the family c/o Omega Funeral Home, 83 Royal Road South, Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 1T8, 1-800-303-4621 or friends may leave a message of sympathy on our web site www.omegafuneralhome.com Dedicated to those we serve .
