Devoted wife, cherished mother, awesome granny, terrific sister, fabulous aunt and true friend, is going to be greatly missed by all of us. Liz is survived by her husband of 52 years Walter and two children, daughter Kim (Daryl), son Ken, two grandchildren, Jake and Mitchell and brothers Stan (Delores), Bill (Sandra) and their extended families. Liz was born in Caldar, Saskatchewan in 1935, her family moved to Roblin, Manitoba in 1937, then to Fort William, Ontario in 1949, where her passion for singing blossomed. In 1958 she moved to Toronto with her girl friend Sonia to expand their musical horizons. Her claim to fame was living in the same apartment block as Donald Sutherland. In 1959 she made another move to Winnipeg, Manitoba and married Walter in 1961, before moving to Richmond, British Columbia in 1963. After moving to BC she sang with several choirs,
Richmond Musical Theatre Club, Richmond Singers, Alegro, Keynote Choir, Old Spice Girls, Ladner Glee Club and made many life long friends. She brought joy to all those she sang for with her positive outlook, infectious smile, and willingness to lend a helping hand to those in need. Liz also volunteered for many years at the McKee
House on the Special Events Committee. A Celebration of Life will be held at the McKee Seniors Recreation Centre, 5155 47th Ave, Delta, BC on Sunday June 30th, 2013, from 1-4pm. In lieu of flowers donations in her memory can be contributed to the McKee House Senior's Society or Delta Hospital Auxiliary Society.
