Brock (nee Shortt), Elizabeth Margaret

Elizabeth, beloved wife of Wayne, passed away suddenly at home on Thursday, May 14 at the age of 62.

Elizabeth was born to Lourdes and Kenneth (“K.C.”) Shortt in London, Ontario and spent her childhood in Toronto. Elizabeth and Wayne were married in Toronto in 1970. They moved to Brazil with “their girls” in 1979 and in 1982 returned to Canada, settling in Calgary.

Besides her loving husband of thirty-eight years, Elizabeth is survived by her daughters, Michelle (Doug) Watmough and Lindsay (Doug) Keer; as well as her “darling” grandchildren, Kyra, Parker, Kennedy, and Brock Keer and Alexander Watmough. Grandma was anxiously awaiting her sixth grandchild, baby Watmough, who will be arriving in the coming days. Our “beautiful” Grandma will be deeply missed.

Elizabeth is also survived by her sisters, Mary Lou (David) Gray and Adrienne (Rick) Mays; and her nieces Katie Gray, Heather (Afrim) Pristine and Laura Mays.

Elizabeth leaves behind so many wonderful friends that meant the world to her. Remember her for the light and laughter that she brought to all our lives.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Gerard’s Catholic Church (8944 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Wednesday, May 20, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. Forward condolences through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada 222 Queen Street, Suite 1402 Ottawa, ON K1P 5V9 Telephone: 613-569-4361 or locally through
