August 30, 1925 – June 14, 2012
Christina Elliott passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 14, 2012 at the age of 86 years.
Chris was born in the town of Nijmegen, Holland on August 30, 1925. She met her beloved predeceased husband Bill Elliott while he was on military duty in 1943 and later left to meet and marry Bill in Canada in 1947. Bill and Chris worked the farm for two years then moved to Lethbridge for work, then moved on to Calgary in 1954. Chris and Bill gave birth to three children, Deannie (Bill) Cicon, Brenda (Jack) Urness and Terry Elliott. Grandchildren include Stephen Urness, Andrea Cicon and Alexandra Elliott plus all the nieces and nephews. Chris worked for the University of Calgary for a number of years before retiring. Chris and Bill were members of the Calgary Recreation Centres where they went swimming and worked out nearly every day. They especially enjoyed their vegetable and flower gardening at their home on Northmount Drive and frequent family gatherings, plus camping with the children and grandkids in their trailer and motor home in Radium, BC and later in life spending the winter months in Yuma, AZ. They just celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary on May 23, 2010. We, the family and all her friends, will indeed miss Chris as a wonderful mother and friend of everyone that met her and shared in her stories of her wonderful life in this world. All her personal friends will miss Chris dearly as she shared lots of laughs and enjoyment at the many gathering at her Villa D’Este Condo in Tuscany.
We all know Chris is in a better place now with her husband Bill.
God Bless Chris Elliott.
