Ella Onken (Mitchell)

March 6, 1927 - June 16, 2015


Born in Estevan, Saskatchewan on March 6, 1927, Ella passed away in the Menno Home on June 16, 2015.  Ella will be dearly missed by her six children: Karen (Tom) Hynd, Sandra (David) Fenton, Robert (Kerri) Onken, Susan (Gary) Matthews, Diana Onken, Debra (Alan) Krause as well has 9 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.  Ella will also be remembered by her sister Polly (Monty) Montemurro and her brother Fred (Hazel) Mitchell.  Ella worked hard throughout her life in many roles and retired in 1993 after working for years as a Rural Route mail carrier in Abbotsford.  However the job she was most proud of was raising her 6 children on her own.  Ella loved to have fun and share a good laugh.  In her life she loved to knit and play games including bowling, cribbage, word puzzles and Bingo.  The family is extremely thankful for all the compassion and care that Ella received from the staff at the Menno Home.  A celebration of Ella’s life will be held July 4, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. in the Best Western conference Centre, 32110 Marshall Road.

Losing your Mom is always a great loss..no matter the age or declining health
Your Mom was a unique personality “one of a kind” you might even say
She had her own brand of honesty and often to the delight of many spoke it freely….
No one after meeting her would ever forget her…and that includes Bob and I
With our sympathy to all the family
Rita and Bob Fynn
