CALLAWAY, Elizabeth Jane
July 10, 1956 – March 22, 2017
Elizabeth Jane Callaway passed away peacefully at the age of
60 years at the Dulcina Hospice – Calgary AB with her
family by her side.
Elizabeth was the third of four children born to Violet
"Dolly" (Kent) and Gordon Callaway of Cochrane AB.
After completing school in Cochrane, Elizabeth attended
SAIT to receive a secretarial arts certificate. She enjoyed
her years as an administrative assistant at Dome
Petroleum and was actively involved in the "Desk and
Derrick" club – an organization for women employed in the
petroleum industry dedicated to education and professional
development. After the oil industry decline, Elizabeth travelled
north to share her passion for cooking in a remote oil production
camp. The meals she prepared for 2 or 200 were delicious, home cooked
creations. She returned to Calgary and began her short, successful real estate career.
Elizabeth loved to travel to warm destinations, her favourites being Mexico, Dominican
Republic and Cuba. Perhaps Elizabeth's greatest calling was the care and comfort she
provided to her mother and father in their later years. They became her life focus, and
her loving care helped them to remain in their home for many years. As Elizabeth's health
failed, she never ceased to consider other people before herself. Her care of others was
unending. She will be held in our hearts forever.
Elizabeth is survived by her sister, Rochelle Callaway of Red Deer AB, brother David
Callaway (Giesele) of Canyon BC and brother William (Lorna) Callaway of Cochrane AB.
She was cherished by her nieces and nephews – Janine (Shawn), Mark, Jeffrey (Nicole),
Jennifer (Darren), Daniel (Jennifer), Meaghan (Doug), Ryan, Kirsten (Matt) and Jordan
(Kim) and her great nieces and great nephews – Alex, Olivia, Abigail, Raya, Bronwynn, and
Sophie. Elizabeth was predeceased by her father, Gordon, and mother, Dolly. Elizabeth's
family would like to thank Cochrane Home Care, Rural Palliative Care Team and the Dulcina
Hospice for the excellent and loving care they provided to both Elizabeth and her family.
A Celebration of Life was held at St. Andrew's United Church in Cochrane, AB on
Saturday, March 25, 2017.
If friends so desire, memorial gifts may be made in Elizabeth's name to the
Covenant Foundation in support of Dulcina Hospice, Room 3C60,
11111 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton AB T5K 0L4.
