Born on October 5, 1953 to William (Bill) and Maureen Glowasky, Elaine passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 1st with family by her side at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, BC. Elaine fought a tenacious battle with cancer for over 6 years and had many ups and downs.
For over 30 years she was a distributor of Pro-Ma Systems Optimal Health Organic Aloe Juice and Grace Skin care products. She was passionate about sharing the many health benefits of the products and treasured the friendship with the formulators Don & Lucille Flint and the Fittler Family, Pro-Ma Systems Owners.
Countless fond memories and friendships were formed during summers spent as host with her husband Vaughn at their remote floating cabin, Nootka Sound Sports Fishing Charters, on Tlupana Inlet in protected Three Bay Cove where visitors became family.
Predeceased by her father William Glowasky, Elaine is survived by her husband Vaughn Michaud, mother Maureen Glowasky, sister Lynne (John) Allen, children Michelle (Ian) Jensen, Justin (Joanne) Makasoff, Christi (Mike) Makasoff, Kelly (Theresa) Michaud, Christi Michaud, grandchildren Zac, Sabrina, Christopher, Brendan, Avery and Kelsey and nephews Tom (Naomi) Allen and Nic (Nikki) Allen.
Special thanks to Dr. Janet Green for her care and valued friendship through the years, to Dr. Barbara Fehlau and to the nurses on the first floor and the emergency of St. Josephs’ Hospital. Also thank you to all the paramedics for all your help on the many call outs as well as Hospice volunteers Maxine and Melanie and Palliative Care.
A celebration of Elaine’s life will be held at an Open House at 430 Arden Road (off 1st Street) on Saturday, June 15 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm.
