Elaine Tasker

April 16, 1935 - January 28, 2024

Tribute

Elaine Elizabeth Tasker passed away peacefully with her husband of 68 years, Don, by her side on Sunday January 28, 2024, in Penticton, just short of her 89th year. She is predeceased by her parents, Bill and Ernestine Lode; brothers, Bill and Lloyd Lode; and son, Ronnie.

Elaine is survived by her husband, Don; son, Len (Dianne); grandsons, Jesse, Sean, Cruz, Harley and great-grandchildren, Raiden, Jade and Easton.

Elaine was born on April 16, 1935 in Rockglen, Saskatchewan before moving to BC with her parents, Bill and Ernestine Lode. The family lived and made homes in the communities of Cranbrook and Oliver.

After meeting Don Tasker in Oliver. they were married in 1956. Over their first years they moved around to different communities in BC before settling in Okanagan Falls where they built their family home of almost 60 years.

In 1959, Elaine had her first son Len and later in 1963 gave birth to her youngest son, Ron.

Elaine was a mother and home maker first but in 1969 was bitten by the hockey bug after her first son Len began playing in the newly built Oliver Arena, soon followed by her youngest son Ron. She quickly became an avid fan. Over the following years Elaine and Don were keep very busy following the boys around to multiple cities for games and tournaments. Many great life time friends to this day were made over these years.

Elaine also was blessed with four grandchildren. Jesse, Sean, Cruz, Harley and three great- grandchildren, Raiden, Jade and Easton. Good or bad, Elaine always had time for these kids. Unconditional love.

Elaine would also often be seen in the summer months in Okanagan Falls teaching swimming lessons to local kids with her long-time friend and neighbor Carol Haddow.

In more recent years, she and Don had joined an RV club where they traveled around to different camping locations in the province. Through the course of these travels she again gained many more new friends that lasted to the end.

She loved hitting the garage sales with Don anywhere they could be found. She always seemed to purchase something whether it was needed or not or to possibly give to someone else. Elaine had a very giving heart and would always think of others even before herself.

She was a loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and Friend.

Rest in Peace

A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm Saturday May 25, 2024 at the Okanagan Falls Cemetery followed by a celebration of life at 3:00 pm at the Okanagan Falls Seniors Centre.
