Elsie Elizabeth Billingham

Billingham, Elsie Elizabeth

a.k.a Chris Robinson

Dec 4, 1923 – May 6, 2006

Born Wales

Died Courtenay, BC


A women of strength, fortitude and strong will, mom succumbed to a brutal final month of cancer. In attendance steadfastly in her last 2 weeks stood three of her children, laughing, crying, reminiscing, looking at photos, conferring, and giving care and compassion.

Born in Wales, steamed the Atlantic to Canada as a war bride, raised six children, later retired to the beaches of Hawaii for 25 years and spent the last 10 years in the Valley, re-uniting with the father of her children.


Now both have passed.

Hope Dad is hanging out playing crib with the boys

And Mom on a tropical beach with all her pals.

Until the next time we meet

We will continue to be inspired

by her strength and passion.



Thank you Father Paul, Miya and staff at Glacier View, and Dr. Woldnik.
