She leaves behind three daughters, Clara Klassen (Harold Grey), Penny (Lloyd) Boehmer, Barbara (Sam) Calla, stepchildren Orville (Jay) Lester, Allan (Mary) Lester and Gladys Souther, many grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews. Predeceased by husbands, Todd Elliott, Lavere Lester, James Baker, sons, Harry and William (Bill) Elliott and granddaughter, Teri Smith. Vi grew up in Vancouver, where she met and married Todd and then moved to Maple Ridge. She also had lived in a variety of small towns within B.C. (Houston, Vernon, 70 Mile House, Clinton, Merritt) and then back to Maple Ridge where she had lived for the last 7 years. Vi worked at a variety of jobs, at a chicken hatchery, in greenhouses, Riverview Hospital, and then she went on to become a nurse at Maple Ridge Hospital. The family would like to extend a special thank you to all the nurses and staff at Baillie House for their excellent care and support. At Mum’s request, there will be no service.
