April 14, 1936 - April 20, 2018 On Friday April 20, our beloved mother passed away peacefully with family at her side. Elaine, daughter of Ivy Gladys and John Edward Wilson, was predeceased in 1986 by her husband Hans Dieter (1930). She is fondly remembered by her children, son John Dieter (Lisa) and grandchildren Eric, Cameron and Ryan; Son Steven Dieter, Daughter Deborah Davies (Michael) and grandchildren Jeffrey (Maureen), David (Matt), Joe (Theresa) and great grandsons Austin and Liam, Darrin (Debbie) and great-granddaughter Mikaila, Justin (Laura) and great grandson Ryder; daughter Karin Dieter (Steven) and grandchildren Morgan (Hannah) and great-grand daughter Ava, Brittanie and great-grandson Rylan; Step grandchildren - Shane, Nathan, Kailyn and Sarah; chosen daughter Michele Morgan and her sons Morgan and Britain. Elaine was born in Port Arthur, Ontario where she and attended Prospect Avenue Public School and then Port Arthur Collegiate Institute. Following high school, Elaine trained in the School of Nursing at Port Arthur General Hospital to become a registered nurse. During this time she met Hans Dieter, a lifeguard and public school teacher. They married and raised a large family while living in the communities of Kingston, Toronto and Barrie. Elaine was an active member of the community wherever she lived, and developed many close and lasting friendships. Intrepid, Elaine loved her travel adventures, which took enough unexpected twists to write a book. She enjoyed dance, music and theatre. True to her spirit, Elaine’s energy and optimism was shared all through her life as she organized many functions and still led weekly walking tours for her friends at the Whitby Senior Centre. She was an avid gardener and her trade-mark birch tree can be seen planted in front of several houses that she has lived in. Elaine was a gentle and caring influence on the lives of her family, which provided care and comfort for many children as a foster home for The Children’s Aid Society, while also raising four other active children, Karin, Steve, Debbie and John. Elaine has requested that there be no service held for her. In lieu of the service and flowers, it is requested that any kind donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
