Dear David & family, My condolences on your loss. As a person new to Baton Twirling Elva always had a story for me about the history of baton twirling. Baton Twirling in Sask & Canada has lots to thank Elva for her many hours contributing to its growth and success.

Kim and Taylor Family
it was sad news that my sister Tracy shared with me about the passing of your mom Elva. I remember her very fondly as a passionate advocate for baton twirling and was incredibly supportive of me in my role many years ago as CBTF Technical Chair. Elva will be greatly missed by everyone in CBTF and SBTF !
David and Family:
I was sad to hear the passing of Elva – my condolences and prayers to everyone. Elva and I worked together for many years through SBTA and CBTF – she was a wonderful feisty personality that worked hard, along with others to have baton recognized as a sport. I appreciated her friendship and the time she took to mentor me during my volunteer years. She will be greatly missed and always remembered.
On behalf of the Sundown Optimist Buffalo Gals Baton Twirling Club, please accept our sincere condolences on Elva’s passing. Elva’s contributions to baton twirling in Saskatchewan were extensive. Her tireless efforts have benefitted generations of twirlers. We sincerely appreciated her dedication to the sport. She will be missed by many.
Gary and I offer our heartfelt condolences to you, Dave and to you family. We are so sorry to hear that your beloved Elva has passed and didn’t know that she had been ill for some time. Hopefully when we get home from Mexico next week, we can have you over for coffee. Big hugs from both of us.
Dave and family. Elva will be so missed by family and friends. Zane and I extend our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
