ELLIOTT, Dr. Elizabeth "Liz" May It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Liz, peacefully at home surrounded by family, on September 9, 2011. She is survived by her loving husband and soul-mate Milt, her son Kris, daughter Maya, mother Albina, father Wally, brother Peter, sister-in-law Colleen, brothers-in-law George and Don, and nieces Megan, Shannon, Ingrid and nephew Troy. Liz was born May 22, 1957 in Montreal. She grew up in Ottawa and settled in B.C in the 1980s. Liz will be greatly missed by her family, wide circle of friends and colleagues, and countless students and prisoners. Liz drew strength and inspiration from those around her and, in turn, influenced others through her tireless social and community work and her teaching as Associate Professor, Criminology, Simon Fraser University. She was a fierce advocate for social justice and co-founded the Centre for Restorative Justice at SFU. Liz was a spiritual being who lived every day to the fullest. She faced her impending departure as she did life: with strength, courage, grace and dignity. A service celebrating Liz's life will be held on Saturday, September 17 at 1:00 pm at the football field at Mission Senior Secondary School in Mission, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the John Howard Society of B.C. A special thank you to Drs. Mitchinson, Winston and Potter and the nurses at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre. Thanks also to the caring folks at the Integrated Health Centre in Fort Langley.
