  A celebration of life will be held at a later time when all family and friends can attend.


Reay, Elaine

1967 -2020

It is with great sadness that the family of Elaine Reay announces her passing at 53 on May 19, 2020. A celebration of life will be held at a later time when all family and friends can attend.

She is survived by her parents Robert and Doreen Klein, her brother Dean Klein, husband Doug Reay, and four children Jayme Reay, Bobby Reay, Tamara Reay, Sydney Reay, their spouses, and 7 grandchildren. Elaine was predeceased by her sister in 2009.

There wasn’t anything more in her life she wanted than to be with her family. Elaine was immensely proud of the life she created with her loving husband and the people she cared for. She leaves us with beautiful memories of days filled with laughter, songs for the grand babies, smells of fresh bread, morning coffees, and late night dancing.

For our Mom,

“Somewhere beyond the sea,

She’s there watching for me,

If I could fly like birds on high,

Then straight to her arms, I’d go sailing.”

Rocky and Sylvan Lake Funeral Homes and Crematorium, your Golden Rule Funeral Homes, entrusted with the arrangements. 403-845-2626

With sadness we heard the news of Elains passing. Our thoughts are with the entire family, and Dean who was a good friend of mine in high school.
I did not know that Elaine felt strongly of the sea. Since I have made my life on it, on our next passage next week, between France and either UK or Portugal, I will pay tribute and send some flowers to the sea for her.
She was always so nice to me.

Heartwarming healing prayers to all.
