To Liz’s family; I am so sorry for your loss. She was a good person and has been through a lot and now hopefully is with her beloved Harold. R.I.P. Liz.
I am so sorry to hear this news. It was only very recently that I had the pleasure of meeting Liz… ..she was across the hall from my mother, Dorothy, at the hospital and we began to chat, just days before my mother passed.
In that brief time, I learned that she was a very gentle, caring woman who loved her family and her dear sheltie dog. She spoke about her life with her late husband, Harold and of their three children, with deep affection and love. I am sorry for their loss.
Wishing you the very best,
Elise Leung (Collings)
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your mom gave me my first job- babysitting for Chris, when I was 14. She was so patient and kind, even when we sledded over the collie you had as a child. She was a great lady and touched so many lives. She will always be in my heart. You are all in my heart and prayers at this time.

So sorry about Liz’s passing. We know how deeply she was loved because of all of all the stories and laughs Aunt Amy has shared with us over the years. She had a very special place in Aunt Amy’s heart and I know they both shared an extreme love for animals….all of which shows what a deeply compassionate person she must have been. Please accept our deepest sympathies to everyone….all of Liz’s children, Aunt Amy, and Peter and Rose and their family.
