A Eulogy for a special Lady :

We’re here today to celebrate and remember someone dear to us all – Elhe

This is a celebration.
It’s the love, the laughs, the support and the friendship – that Elhe gave us all.

She loved her family.
And had huge love and pride in her children and grandchildren

She had her distractions too…….

She loved reading, Man United, playing golf and watching golf.
Elhe loved her travel, spent a lot of time in Dubai, visiting family and loved New Zealand.
Elhe was also a Shopaholic and avid Antiques Collector, particularly Antique Compacts.
She as proud of her Welsh and Norwegian heritage , who else can boast of a Grandfather named Gwyneth Caldwaller Williams and also Anker.
When in Oslo , we met some of the Anker Clan, very tall !

She had loyalty and determination – yet kept a sense of fun…

Her advice to you ALL on life, would probably be – “We’re here for a good time, not a long time”….

A hard act to follow.
I would like to read a text from Lisa, with young Monty’s thoughts.

Monty wants to tell you that he is very sad his Granny Elhe has gone to Heaven and hopes you are alright, he is glad you are not by yourself as you have Phoebe and Satchmo.
He said he wishes his toy wand was real because he would magic Granny Elhe back to you.
A very good Eulogy for a seven and half year old.
As you know Elhe never had a cross word for anybody and loved everyone, especially her children and animals.
This is a Eulogy for a very special Lady , whom I loved very much and so did all the family.

Sian Roberts writes [14th August 2020]:


Those special memories of you
will always bring a smile
if only I could have you back
for just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again
just like we used to do
you always meant so very much
and always will do too
The fact that you’re no longer here
will always cause me pain
but you’re forever in my heart
until we meet again...

Always and forever, Sian

Elhe was a lovely caring lady, nothing was too much trouble for her.

I have happy memories of time spent with Elhe in Malaysia. Our afternoons playing Mahjong and the challenge of learning to play golf in the heat of Malaysia.

It was a pleasure knowing Elhe.

It was a pleasure to have known such a wonderful lady. We always enjoyed our time together in Kate’s Hill and Dubai. We laughed so hard we cried. We shopped til we dropped. We loved all the dogs and cats. Bailey used to nuzzle my head in the pool so cute. Memories will keep us close forever. Til we meet again rest in peace. Much love always

My Auntie so dear, a Godmother so rare, always to care, and always to share. My go to place, always the lace, your heart so full of grace.
The sunshine after the storm, the unconditional love enabling me to challenge the norm.
Colourful as a rainbow, every blossom of every flower, the shining light of every darker hour, the lightness and joy, accepting of every ploy.
The huggle, the cuddle, the pick me up from every puddle.
Never expecting, always accepting, non relenting, always giving, ... [read more from Sharron Mitchell]
