Obituary for Elaine May ZEHR (Hall)

ZEHR: Elaine May (Hall) - passed away peacefully at peopleCare Tavistock on October 12th, 2022. Born July 16th 1931, Elaine was predeceased by her parents, Victor and Ruby (Dennis) Hall. Also predeceased by her husband Harley Zehr and her son Robert H. Zehr.

Survived by her daughter Judy and son in law Ken Green of Happy Hills Retirement Village and daughter in law Bonnie Zehr of Tavistock. She was the proud grandmother to Shannon Green of Milton, Darryl Green (Nikki) of Milford NH, Brittany Zehr of Tavistock and Jordan Zehr of Tavistock and great grandmother of cherished Carly and Luke Green.

Elaine had a zest for life. Ballparks, hockey arenas, yard work and euchre nights with Harley and their best friends (Lorne and Mae Yausie, Don and Laurene Fuller) filled her days with laughter and joy. Her door was always open to her grandchildren and their friends which in turn kept her house bustling with festivities. Ever the hostess you could always count on baked goods, popcorn and Coke. Elaine was the heartbeat of her family. Her fiery spirit and fierce loyalty will be dearly missed.

Elaine’s family would like to thank the staff at peopleCare Tavistock for their compassion and dedication to Elaine during her residency.

In keeping with her wishes a private family service will be held at a later date.
