VERA INGE ELDER On November 29th, 2012 the world lost a rare soul. Vera was a beacon of light and warmth. Her life was devoted to the care and happiness of all around her. She was an inspiration and a source of great strength to everyone she touched. Loving wife for over 68 cherished years to (Her Soul Mate) John Elder. Mother and confidante to her three children, Anne Sidon (Ron), Michael (Caren) and Robert Elder (Tracy). Grandmother and great grandmother (Oma) to her beloved flock. A true lover and volunteer for all the arts but in particular the opera which gave her great joy! The family would like to express their thanks and love for their tireless caregivers Adel, Ninfa, Dhelia and Inez who have made her later years more peaceful. Also the staff and doctors of Mount Sinai for their determination and the dignity they preserved. Her wishes were for a simple private family celebration that was held this week. Messages for the family can be left on the Morley Bedford Funeral Home website and donations can be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of your choice. Vera, we all loved you so much and miss you terribly but the memories you have left us will last our lifetimes xo.
