My condolences.
My memory of Elva was from my younger days, she'd offer to pick up the kids that lived in the neighbourhood in Eagle Lake and take them to church in her green Pontiac Station Wagon from the sixties. Elva was always thinking of others, right through to her later years. I'd always see her in the park in Haliburton picking up trash to keep the park looking nice.
She'll be sadly missed by many people, she was such a huge part of the community.

Deepest sympathy to Charlie and Dwight and to their families.
Elva was a great role model for all of us, with her strong faith and determination. She had a close relationship with God, and believed in the power of prayer. No doubt she is resting in His arms now.
She was the eldest of the Sawyer cousins, and will be missed by all of us.
