Elaine Granville, a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and cousin passed away peacefully at the Charlotte County Hospital in St. Stephen, N.B. on July 10, 2023, three short weeks after celebrating her 98th birthday. Daughter of the late Henry and Frances (Waterson) Scovil, she was predeceased by her husband Richard “Dick” Granville in 2006.
Survived by her son Michael (Ann) Granville of Moncton, N.B daughter Judy (Norman) Thornton of Calais Me, and grandson Christopher Thornton (Sherri) of Stetson, Me. She will be missed by her "little"brother Ted Scovil (late Audrey) of St. George N.B. as well as several nieces, nephews and her "American cousins".
In addition to her parents and husband, Elaine is predeceased by her brothers Jack (late Shirley) and Dick Scovil (Betty), sister-in-law Rosalie (Shreve) Angus, nephew John Scovil and niece Carolyn Shreve.
In her younger years she was an avid golfer, curler, bridge player, seamstress, gardener, gourmet cook and consummate hostess. Elaine and Dick shared 59 years together, travelling extensively and spending summers at their Chamcook cottage, the place Mom loved best in the whole world.
Although diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a few years ago, Mom never lost her amazing memory, fashion flair or her feisty spirit.
