Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • We are very sad to hear about Nelma’s passing. She was a lovely neighbour who always took interest in our children as they were growing up. She enjoyed a chat and especially a visit, and was eager to participate in activities on the cul-de-sac. She will always be remembered for her engaging smile and great storytelling. - Posted by: Linda & Paul Bailes (Friends & neighbors) on: Apr 20, 2023

  • I am very sad to hear of Nelma's passing. Nelma served on my PhD committee at the University of Manitoba. She was such a great supporter of my research. I admired her joy for life; her enthusiasm for working with students was always evident. Nelma's love of footwear was a consistent source of conversation in the Faculty of Human Ecology! My sincere condolences to her family. - Posted by: Lisa Lix (Former Student and Colleague) on: Mar 23, 2023
