Elisabeth Flett (nee Mueller)(Updated)

March 20, 1950 – October 25, 2023

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Elisabeth Flett, who left us on October 25 at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre with her family by her side.

Elisabeth was a beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and friend. She is predeceased by her father, Edward Mueller (1982) and mother, Madeleine (nee Pageot) (2016).

Elisabeth will be deeply missed and survived by her only daughter, Lisa Johnson (Jeff), grandchildren Kole Johnson (Tess), Kayla Sholdice (Riley), and Kassidy Johnson (Alex); and great-grandchild Dawson Sholdice.

Elisabeth also leaves behind her Brothers Wilfred Mueller (Joanne), and Alfred Mueller (Donna), nephew and nieces Steven, Stephanie, and Selina, as well as other treasured uncles, aunts, and cousins in Winnipeg, Saint Malo, and Pornic, France. She will be missed dearly by her many beloved friends including Molly, Leila, Jean and her breakfast crew over the years.

Elisabeth was born in Nantes, France and immigrated to Canada with her family in 1950. She grew up in Transcona, attending Murdoch MacKay Collegiate and lived in Manitoba throughout her life making her home in Rivers, Tyndall, Thompson, and finally Selkirk.

Her loss will be felt by many in the community as Elisabeth was an active lifelong volunteer for numerous organizations. The Royal Canadian Legion, Selkirk Game & Fish, Jr. Rifle, the Gordon Howard Senior Centre, and Tudor House were among a few that were especially dear to her.

Elisabeth had a fulfilling career working for the likes of Air Canada, Stony Mountain, Elections Canada and Industry Canada over the years as well as practicing as a hairdresser and operating her own driving school in Thompson. She cared deeply for her coworkers, keeping up with them over the years and had been thoroughly enjoying her retirement since 2009. She enjoyed spending her time scouring garage sales, craft sales, and thrift stores, complaining about A&W’s breakfast and hearing the latest gossip with her friends.

Our family would specifically like to thank Elisabeth’s wonderful neighbours, Tanya and Dale Monkman for their continued support, friendship and care.

We will miss Elisabeth tremendously, particularly for her enthusiasm, generosity, humour, and resilience.

A Celebration of Life will be held on January 7, 2024 at 1:00 PM at the Selkirk Legion.

Please enjoy the following humorous poem written for Elisabeth by her grandkids for her 60th birthday:

Look at you Gramma you’re 5 foot 2,
And your only daughter hit you with a shoe.
She hit you so hard she made you cry,
It seemed that you thought you were going to die.
Once again you’ve cheated death,
60 years and you still have breath,
Garage sales, arts and crafts.
Junior Rifle and Income Tax.
All these things you’re compelled to do,
If you were a horse you’d be turned to glue.
Appetizers, dinner, desserts and wine,
If you’ve got the Stovetop everyone’s fine.
Thank you, Gramma for everything you do,
We hope that our poem doesn’t make you blue.
We love you!
