Elva Merle Thomson, nee Pletsch, peacefully passed away on September 30, 2023, at Brantford General Hospital at the remarkable age of 97. She was dearly beloved by her late husband Kester Thomson (1988) and was cherished by her children Kathryn (John Jepson) of Paris, Robert of Brantford, and Karen (Robert Lavigne) of Brantford. Elva will be fondly remembered as a devoted grandmother to Jennifer and her two daughters, Marisa and Hailey. She joins her parents, Aaron and Clarissa Pletsch (nee Hesse), her sister Olive, and her brother Danny, as well as her grandson Robert, who predeceased her.

Elva dedicated her life to raising her children and creating a nurturing home environment. She delighted in adorning her residence in Paris with beautiful flower gardens and bountiful vegetable gardens. Maintaining strong ties with her faith community and friends at Paris Presbyterian Church brought her immense joy, and her absence will be deeply felt by all who knew her. The family expresses their gratitude to the compassionate nurses and staff at Telfer Place in Paris, who provided Elva with exceptional care during her time there.
