Peacefully, on February 24, the matriarch of the Klimenko family left this world to reunite with her husband, mother, father and brothers.
Else met Alex at Kelvin High School, learning English together after immigrating from Europe in 1948. Together they owned and operated the Garwood Grill for many years.
She leaves to mourn, her sons, Gordon (Hannya) and Ron (Dianne); grandchildren, Brandon (Alicia), Alannah, Graeme, Martin and Marko; great-grandchildren, Connor and Kennedy.
She will be forever loved and always missed. Until we meet again; we love you Mom, Grandma, Granny. Rest In Peace.
