Elizabeth (Elsie) grew up on a farm outside Annaheim, SK, with fifteen brothers and sisters. She was close with her siblings and greatly enjoyed talking and visiting with them. Elizabeth married Joseph Poelking and moved to the family farm outside of Englefeld in 1962. She deeply loved, and was deeply loved by, her husband and family, and she was a close friend to her neighbours and many in the community. She loved living on the farm and enjoyed nature, although she preferred nature stay out of her garden! Elizabeth moved to Humboldt in 2012 and easily made new friends. She will be remembered for her generous, kind spirit as well as her quick sense of humour. Many of us will remember her wonderful cooking; nothing pleased Elsie more than cooking for a large family gathering ensuring everyone had seconds and thirds. And everyone gratefully obliged. Elizabeth will also be remembered for her optimistic, uncomplaining attitude.
