1951 – 2017

It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of our beloved ELLEN (née Hoenig) DELAINEY on Thursday, December 28, 2017.

She is lovingly remembered by her husband Fred; his sons Marc and Adam and their families; Ellen’s sister Carol Hunkel and her children, Lori, David and Scott and their families, all from the Milwaukee, WI area; as well as brothers-in-law, John (Geraldine), Bill (Deb), Dennis (Sylvia), Bob (Donna), Brian (Janet) and Neil (Rita) and their families.

Ellen was predeceased by her parents Raymond and Jeannette Hoenig and her little brother Lee.

Ellen retired from the U.S. Air Force as a Master Sgt. and continued her skills as a bookkeeper with Berreth-Smith & Associates of Spokane, WA. She retired from there and soon married Fred in 2012. They made Coaldale, Alberta their home where she truly enjoyed her flower gardens and the trips her and Fred took before her illness.

Ellen’s family would like to thank all those who lovingly showed care to her in her hour of need: Coaldale Homecare, Jack Ady Centre, Chinook Regional Hospital, St. Michael’s Palliative Care and Cornerstone Funeral Home.

Ellen will be sadly missed and forever remembered.

At Ellen’s request, no formal funeral service will be held.
