Lila Elder Obituary

It is with a deep sense of sorrow and loss our family announces the passing of our be-loved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Lila Elder on March 2, 2024.

Married to her best friend Hilt on June 13, 1969, Hilt and Lila spent their lives creating memories with family and friends - who were like family.

Lila is best remembered as a “true and loyal forever” friend.  She loved her many cousins, sharing her life and all the good times.  She was always ready to plan another get-together.

The matriarch was predeceased by her parents Fred and Pauline (Wombold) Trieber; sister-in-law Beverly Trieber; brother Harold Trieber; step-daughter Kendra Kennedy; and be-loved husband Hilt Elder.

Lila will be forever remembered and is survived by her daughters Cindy (Jim) Friesen and Shelly (Blaine) Rose; her grandchildren Melanie (Aaron) Torvik, Travis (Jackie) Friesen, Carmen (Scott) Wagler, Tia (Kevin) Bogath, Brittany (Klarence) Feitsma, and Brett (Ariana) Rose; step-children Neil Kennedy (son-in-law) and children, Kellie Elder, Karla (Rick) Palardy and children, and Harold (Sharon) Elder and children; 14 great-grandchildren whom she truly adored; alongside numerous nieces, nephews, and friends whom she thought of as family.

A private family service is being held.  

Memorial donations are gratefully accepted to any charity of your choice.
