ELIZABETH (ELSIE) HLADY
January 14, 1927 October 20, 2020
Elsie was preceded in death by her husband Mike of 57 of years; her daughter Pat and her son-in-law Ingram.
She is lovingly remembered by her sons, Allan and Kenny; their wives, Janet and Karen; her grandchildren, Susan, Kristin, Mark, Bradley, Michael, Sherri, Kathy and Andrew; her great-grandchildren, Emily, Kaitlyn, Remy, Cohen, Whitney, Nathan and Mathew; along with many other loving family members and friends.
Elsie grew up in Tyndall, where she met and married her husband Mike. They raised their three children in Beausejour and together they built a thriving ready-mix concrete business. In 1977, they retired and spent time between their homes in Florida and Manitoba. In 1996, they returned to Beausejour and enjoyed time with family and being with friends at the Seniors Centre. In 2000, her husband Mike suddenly passed away and in 2011, she moved in with her daughter Pat and enjoyed many happy years in her home. She spent her final five years at the West Park Manor Personal Care Home, and we want to thank the staff for the wonderful care they provided Elsie.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Alzheimer's Association of Manitoba.
A ceremony, celebrating her life will be planned later. For now, friends and relatives are encouraged to share in a photo-tribute, stories, and condolences for the family by visiting Elsie's memorial page at IntegrityFuneralPlanning.com.

My mother (Diane Hlady-Somack) often spoke fondly of her Aunty Elsie. She would tell me how during this time she stayed with her Aunty Elsie that her Aunty made her feel special and loved. And yes she spoke of the most beautiful communion dress that was made just for her. She said it was one of her only childhood memories that she felt unconditionally loved. Her Aunty would tell her over and over what a good little girl she was. - Posted by: Dorathy Somack (Great great Aunty ) on: Oct 24, 2020
We are very sorry to hear of Elsie's passing. Our deepest condolences to her family. Mom and I were just reminiscing regarding our separate trips to Florida to visit Aunt Sally Dwornik, Mike and Elsie were always the welcoming committee and the goodbye committee. They were more than happy to be there for us visitors. Elsie was always looking her best. She took pride in that. Although we hadn't seen her of late, she will be missed Terri and Marion Hlady (John) - Posted by: Terri Hlady and Marion Hlady (Cousins) on: Oct 24, 2020
Sorry to your recent losses of Pat and now Aunty Elsie. And so close together. Aunty Elsie was very good to my family. When my Mother got sick and had to be hospitalized Aunty Elsie took in my 2 older sisters and our baby sister and myself. I believe it was for 4 months until the school year ended. When she picked us up at our house I was traumatized by my mother having just left (against her will) in the ambulance. I remember sitting in the back seat of her car with tear stained face as she calmly told us that our mom would be staying in the hospital for a little while until she was better, then would be back home with us again. I knew without a doubt that if Aunty Elsie was telling us this it was true. She was competent, assured and drove a big car! She took good care of us. And between her and probably Aunty Mary (Fred's Mary). And Aunty Mary (Stanley's Mary) they decided we should all get our first communion. She spent many many hours sewing dresses for the four of us, making sure we had veils, matching gloves and beautiful shoes. I felt like a princess. Unfortunately the day before the big ceremony Diane and I got into some tar in Uncle Mike's yard and had to be scrubbed in the tub by her!!! The only time I have ever heard some anger in her voice. Aunty Elsie was a special person who made our lives so much better. I am sure she is in a much better place. Lavone Holler - Posted by: Lavone holler (Niece) on: Oct 24, 2020
