LOGAN, Elizabeth Anne

May 31, 1923 – March 15, 2013

Elizabeth (Bess) Logan, (nee Saunders) lived a long, rich and active life. She was born in Biggar, Saskatchewan in 1923, the fourth of a large loving family of eight. Bess’s brothers and sisters remained an important part of her life. She often lived and travelled with her sisters after her relocation to Calgary in 1944. They kept themselves active by skiing, golfing, playing badminton, skating and having fun in the young city. She and sisters, Margaret and Eleanore, travelled to Europe in 1953. They worked and lived in post-war London, then made a tour of the continent. After Bess returned, she met and married Punch (David) Logan. They had two children, William (Katrina) and Celia (Gerard) and eventually grand- children Hew and Nicola Logan, Guillaume, Julia and Eleanore Carlier. While working in the oil patch in Calgary, the family enjoyed canoeing and hiking and relaxing at their cottage in Trout Lake, BC. Bess was a lifelong volunteer, driving for cancer patients, Meals on Wheels and teaching Tai Chi to seniors for about 20 years. Religion was important to Bess, being a founding member of St. Michael’s Church and as a faithful church goer. She was a lifetime member of the Skrastins Outdoor Club, hiking and skiing every Friday. Bess maintained a wonderful flower and vegetable garden in Wildwood. She died peacefully at home with her family at the age of 89 surrounded by love.

    Mrs. L always treated me as if I were family, and I admired her kindness and calm manner. It was a great privilege to be included for part of her trip to New York City last year. My deepest sympathies and all my love.

  5. John and Bertha Davis :

    It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Bess. Bess and Punch were good friends from sailing days and later when hiking, skiing and planting potatoes in the country with my mother. Bess was always elegant and cheerful with a great love of pets and gardens. We will all miss her and we send our sincere condolences. She will always be with us in spirit and love to guide us and her beloved grandchildren.
