Elsie was born in Revelstoke, B.C. on July 10, 1915 and had been a life-long resident of the city, except for five years when she lived in Vancouver. She was a member of the Rebekah Lodge from 1936 to 1998, an Honorary Life Member of the Revelstoke Senior’s Association and a member of the Revelstoke Hospital Auxiliary and the Revelstoke Museum & Archives. Elsie was a former avid five-pin and carpet bowler, was always up for a card game and loved growing flowers. She had a bottomless cookie jar for anyone that visited. Elsie was the matriarch of the family – the glue that held everyone together.
Elsie’s family that went on before her was her husband Herbert in 1948; four brothers: Jim (Elsie), John (Jean), Alex and Andrew and one sister Dorothy (Darrell) Campbell. She is survived by three children: Andy (Barb) Jamieson of Osoyoos, Lynne (Allan) Anderson of Revelstoke and Herb (Barbara) Jamieson of Langley; six grandchildren: Brian (Kelli) Jamieson of Revelstoke, Lonnie (Stacy) Jamieson of Calgary, Shelly (Brian) Kohlman of Revelstoke, Corry Anderson of Revelstoke, Jeffrey Jamieson and Drew Jamieson of Langley; four great grandchildren: Kevin (Jessica), Mitchell, Tyler and Brooklyn; one brother Bill (Marie) Davidson of Calgary; two sisters-in-law: Marjorie of Revelstoke and Dolly of Victoria as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
