Elaine Jean Huddleston
Passed away peacefully in Campbell River, BC on Feb. 26, 2013. Elaine is predeceased by her birth mother Mima Watson, mother and father Jill and Jim Ashmore, brother Danny Watson, brother Collin Ashmore and sons Derek and Daryl McCaskill.
Elaine is survived by her husband Grant Huddleston, son Dean McCaskill in Alberta, daughter Deanna (Frank) Killinger of Alberta, grandchildren Dianne Benton of Port Hardy, Dearra (Shaw) of Alberta and Daniell (Christen) of Port Hardy, many great grandchildren, brothers Doug (Lorna) Ashmore of Victoria, John (Elaine) Watson of Courtenay and Jim (Darlene) of Campbell River and sister Caroline (George) Acs of Victoria, as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.
Elaine worked many years as manager for Fields stores until her disability set in. She was a member of Citizens on Patrol and up to her passing worked dispatch for Mount Waddington Transit. In Elaine’s leisure time she enjoyed being part of the Port McNeill beading and scrapbooking gang, started burl clocks then wooden Christmas decorations, ceramics and then endless hours beading jewelry.
Elaine was a loving wife with a tireless drive. If anyone needed anything she would be there 24–7. Elaine will be truly missed.
Flowers gratefully declined. For those wishing, donations may be made in Elaine’s memory to the Canadian Lung Association, Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society.
