OICKLE – Elva, of Caledonia, Queens County, passed away peacefully in North Queens Nursing Home, Caledonia on Sunday, May 23, 2021.
Born in Hemford, Elva was a daughter of the late Wilbert and Freda (Smith) Uhlman.
Elva worked at the North Queens Nursing Home, the Nova Scotia Liquor Commission, Sears and her true passion, the Bunne Shoppe, making pizzas, sweets and fresh loaves of bread. Mom and her partner, Steve, enjoyed daily drives, the odd road trip and took joy in a quiet life at home, watching TV and snuggling with their little dog Sasha.
Surviving are her companion of 41 years, Steve Mansfield; her daughters Kathy (Vaughn) Rawding of Caledonia, Betty Oickle of Harmony, Toddy (Gary) Mansfield of Caledonia. Grandchildren Cole Rawding (Alicia), Cody Rawding (Christa), Channing Carver (Avery), Miranda Mansfield (Jordan). Great grandchildren Aprilia, Ravenna, Sullivan and Finnigan Rawding.
Her sister Gaylene (Eric) Veinot of Conquerall Mills and her brother Joseph (Evelyn) of Bridgewater.
Besides her parents, Elva was predeceased by her husband Robert and her son in law Walter Carver.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. A graveside memorial service will be held at a later date in Highland Cemetery, Hibernia Road, Caledonia. No flowers by request, donations may be made to North Queens Nursing Home, North Queens Fire Association or a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com
A special thanks to the staff at North Queens Nursing Home for their patience, kindness and love shown to our mom during her stay.
Farewell to the lady, our mom, our rock who loved her white blouses and always remained young at heart.

Dear Toddy,Kathy,Betty ,Steeve, and families:
So sorry to learn of Alva,s passing. Unbelievable how quickly the years and days move on, but the memories will
remain forever. My memories of Alva were at the Sears shop, and the Bun Shop, where everyone was served
so graciously. The other special memory was when she would come for squash and small pumpkins in the fall, accompanied with the three daughters, Toddy, Kathy, and Betty, having such friendly chat selecting what they would like.
And everyone could not help noticing how beautifully she dressed. She will be missed. My sincere sympathy to all.
Glen
