Florence Bessie Eva May Elsasser (nee Carter) passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 30, 2021 after a short illness. Florence was born on April 14, 1927 in England to Dora and Albert Carter. In 1944, Florence met and married a Canadian Soldier, Louis Edward Clark Elsasser in Milton, England and they spent 55 years together prior to his death in 2000. Florence joined her husband, Clark, in Canada in 1946 to raise their family in Markstay, Ontario. Florence leaves behind her children, Pearl Constantineau (Norman predeceased), Florence O’Connor (Doug predeceased), Lynda Gibas (Eugene) Michael Elsasser predeceased (Gloria), Joy Champagne (Kenneth), Kendall Elsasser (Teresa) and Carter Elsasser (Sheila), and 19 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. Florence was an active member of the War Brides of Canada, Markstay Union Church and Ladies Auxiliary, Markstay Golden Age and Senior Club, Markstay Women’s Institute, Markstay Mixed and Ladies Dart League. Florence enjoyed playing cards with her family and friends, Skip-Bo, Phase 10, and Canasta were some of her favourites. Though she liked to make up her own rules when she needed. She spent many evenings knitting, playing Bingo, watching British Shows and was known to pick the English accent when she watched too many. In true English fashion, Florence was a strong willed and feisty lady. Florence was an avid collector of Santa memorabilia and was famous for her English Traditions of Christmas puddings and the heavily brandied sauce, dark Christmas cake and Christmas stockings. Florence enjoyed hosting her English family when they came to Canada to visit, as well as her trips home. She will be missed by her family across the pond as well as her Canadian nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Markstay Union Church, Building Fund. Resting at Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch St., Sudbury.

Dear Pearl, Florence, Lynda, Joy, Kendall, Carter, Gloria, and all your precious families - We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Aunt Florence and want you to know that we are holding you all in our hearts and prayers!
I remember fondly our growing up years and the excitement we had as cousins, getting to visit you all, especially the great times playing with Joy and Kendall, and looking up to the much older and wiser cousins of whom I was pretty much in awe.
Carter, you were always the little guy, but it has been such a joy getting to know you and Sheila better these past number of years. We are so thankful for the wonderful visit we shared in September of 2019 at your home with Pearl and Norman and a number of the extended family members. We also had an amazing visit with Aunt Florence and heard incredible stories, for the first time, that spanned several generations and captured Bob's and my heart deeply. She was a very courageous woman of deep integrity as she served her family and community so faithfully through the years!
We haven't connected a lot over the years with you all, but when we have, it has been a joyous time of catching up and sharing personal stories. There is always something about "family" that goes so deep and cannot ever be separated.
We love you all very much and are so sorry that we won't be able to be there in person as you say "good-bye" to your precious mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was such an incredible woman, and you will miss her greatly!
We will make plans to visit again when covid restrictions lift and we are able to connect more freely.
Just know that we are thinking of you all and are praying that God's deepest love, comfort, peace, and strength fill, surround and hold you!
Much love and many blessings,
Janine and Bob
