It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Juliette Ellchuk on November 15, 2018 in Yuma, Arizona at the age of 74 years.
Juliette’s greatest joys in life were sewing, playing cards, gardening, dancing, cooking and of course laughing and spending time with her family and friends. Although it may be difficult right now, I know her final wish would be for you to remember her this way.
She leaves to cherish her memory her children, Loriane Dheilly (Roland Poirier), Gillian (Mike) Stohler, Naomi Ellchuk (Aaron Holliday) and Eric Ellchuk (Simonne Kraigher); her grandchildren, William, Sierra, Katarina, Natasha, Tobias, Nicola, Helena, Marcus and Julianne. She also leaves to mourn the father of her children and good friend Dennis Ellchuk; her siblings, Roseline Dheilly, Georges Dheilly (Cheryl Patchett), Gisèle Dheilly (Bernie Ball), Marcel (Michelle) Dheilly, Lucille Dheilly (Ken Tall), Roland (Pat) Dheilly and Pierre (Sheila) Dheilly, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
She is predeceased by her parents Jean and Justine (nee Dedieu) Dheilly and her siblings Marie and Maurice Dheilly.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the St Denis Roman Catholic Church in Haywood, Manitoba on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 3:00pm (a recording will be viewable online shortly after). Interment will take place after the service at the Haywood Parish Cemetery.
The family would like to make everyone aware of a request by Juliette before she passed. Juliette was adamant that she did not want her Celebration of Life to be a sad affair and she would prefer it if people wore colour instead of all black. There are many ways to do this. It could be by wearing a brightly coloured shirt or dress; or by adding a colourful hat, scarf, tie, cravat, accessories, shoes, bag, belt or even nail polish. The family wants to ensure you feel comfortable in your attire, so if you feel more comfortable wearing the traditional all black please do so.
