Elsie Cochrane

Elsie Cochrane (nee McGinness)

October 28, 1932 – April 28, 2014

Born in Vancouver, daughter of William and Mabel McGinness, wife to Sam Cochrane, sister to Elizabeth McGinness.

Elsie was the manager of the catalogue department at Eaton’s Department stores in Langley before moving to Salt Spring Island in 1966. While on Salt Spring she worked at Ganges Post Office.

Elsie loved her home, good humour, conversation, nature, gardening, flowers, helium balloons and dogs were the light and love of her life.

Elsie will be truly missed by Elizabeth, her longtime Dear friends, Pat Mufford’s family and Susannah Devitt.

God Bless You Elsie
