Elsie Moorhead



Peacefully surrounded by family at home, on Sunday, December 29, 2019, Elsie Moorhead passed away in her 75th year. Beloved wife and best friend of Leonard Moorhead for 55 years. Devoted mother of David (Jill) Moorhead, Arlene (Liam) Maharaj and Julie (Steve) Kelly. Loving Nana of Nicholas, Emily, Benjamin, Wesley, Dawson, Paige and Noel. Dear sister of Ina (Wayne) Lawson, Noel (Irene) Laffin, Sheila (Mike) Fraser, Bobby (Nora) Laffin and Maud (Jim) Bingham. Elsie will be greatly missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law. Auntie Elsie will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. Elsie will be fondly remembered by extended family and friends at home and in Northern Ireland. Predeceased by her parents James and Jean Laffin. Elsie was a hard worker over the years and was thankful to have had great co-workers who turned into life-long friends. She enjoyed gardening and spending time in her greenhouse, she loved to travel, knit and was often found cheering on the London Knights, but most of all her favourite thing was being with her grandkids. The Moorhead family wishes to extend their thanks to Dr. Sugimoto and the amazing nurses at LHSC Cancer Clinic and 7th floor, the palliative care team for keeping her comfortable at home, and a special thank you to Dr. Adam Mutsaers, for his above and beyond care for Elsie.
