It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and daughter Elaine Cathy Tyers (Mergel).  Elaine passed away on Friday, January 27th, 2023, at the age of 63 in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan after a prolonged battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

Elaine married her high school sweetheart, Bryon Tyers, on June 24th, 1978, and together they raised three daughters; Shannon, Christine, and Ashley. Elaine was a dedicated stay at home mom who enjoyed tending to her flower and vegetable garden. She enjoyed visiting with family and friends over a fresh pot of coffee. Elaine moved into Pioneer Lodge in 2005 to receive care for her MS, where she lived until her passing. 

Elaine was predeceased by her husband Bryon, her father Raymond, and her granddaughter Hannah. Elaine is survived by her mother Mary Mergel, her siblings Brian (Patty), Floyd, and Leona (Cal), her daughters Shannon, Christine (Jason), and Ashley, and her grandchildren Cameron, Mayson (Shannon) Ryland,  Karsen (Ashley), and Sophie (Christine), as well as numerous extended family members. 

The family would like to express special and heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Pioneer Lodge who provided care to Elaine over the last eighteen years, especially those who went above and beyond the job and treated her like their own family. Although her body failed her, Elaine always maintained her sharp wit and sarcastic sense of humour. She will truly be missed. Memorial donation may be made to Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada 250 Dundas Street West, Suite 500 Toronto ON, M5T 2Z5


In living memory of Elaine, a memorial planting will be made by W.J. Jones & Son Ltd. Please sign the memorial register at website: (Obituaries).
