ELSIE KEARNS (nee Pavan)

Elsie Louise Kearns, beloved wife of Fred Joseph Kearns, passed away at Edith Cavell Care Centre on July 19, 2020 at the age of 93.

Elsie was born Aug 9, 1926 in Lethbridge to Petro (Pete) and Elizabeth (Voller/Faller) Pavan. She was raised on the farm with her two younger sisters in the Eight Mile Lake District and later in Lethbridge. She married the late John Delano Poche of Maybutt (Stirling) in June 1949 where they farmed and raised their family until John passed away in 1965. Elsie rented the land but remained on the farm with Ken until she married Fred Kearns from Nemiscan in 1970. They then farmed the land until retiring to Lethbridge in 1978 but they continued to enjoy the farming seasons whether on leisurely drives, cooking meals or providing a helping hand. Elsie kept her yard and house immaculate and was happiest when people stopped in for a visit and had their fill of her fresh baking. She treasured her grandchildren and embraced every moment she had with them leaving numerous fulfilling memories behind.

Besides her husband, she is survived by her sister, Joan (Ed) Baker of Mirror, Alberta; her son, Ken (Monica) Kearns of Lethbridge and her three grandchildren: Barrett (Eisha) Kearns and their son Nicholas of Lethbridge, Bonnie (Raif Shath) Kearns of UAE and Tiffany (Kyle Heitman) Kearns of Lethbridge. Also mourning her passing are caring in-laws, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents; first husband; infant daughter, Brenda Poche; and sister, Marion (Charlie) Schramm.

With declining health issues she moved into Edith Cavell Care Centre in 2017 where she has resided until her passing. The family would like to thank all the staff for the care and assistance she received during this time.

At Elsie’s request, there will be no formal funeral service. Cremation has been entrusted to Salmon and Sons Funeral Home.
