January 28, 1928 – October 4, 2019
With sorrow the Oles family is announcing the passing of beloved Eliane Oles. Eliane was born in La Seyne sur Mer, France and immigrated to Canada in 1957, settling in Montreal, Quebec with her husband Joseph and son, Robert (Erick). In 2003 after the passing of her beloved Jo, she moved to Yukon to be with her son, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and extended family. She was an avid walker, accomplished painter, exceptional cook and advocate for French culture. Here in Yukon Eliane will be remembered as Madame Oles, for her volunteer work with L’Association Franco-Yukonaise and the many friends she made in Whitehorse and Haines Junction. Eliane was predeceased by her husband Joseph Oles, brothers Albert and George Gamblin and sister Simone Baudouin. She is survived by her older brother Marcel Gamblin. She leaves behind her son, Erick Robert Oles (Frances), grandchildren Natalie (Kevin Moulton) and Thierry Oles (Tracy), great-grandchildren Brendon and Brittany Au, and Tiana, Tyler and Taner Oles.
The Oles family would like to express their appreciation and many thanks for the capable and compassionate staff that have worked with Eliane over these last few years at Copper Ridge Place.
Rest peacefully dear Mamie.
The family is be hosting a celebration of life and reception at 82 Ponderosa in Whitehorse on Friday, October 11, 2019 at 2 pm. Friends and family are welcome.
