March 24, 1943 – January 6, 2013
Elizabeth passed peacefully with family on Sunday, January 6, 2013 at the age of 69 to a courageous end with lymphoma and heart disease.
She enjoyed her retirement years making more memories with joy and gratitude. She had fun travels to Europe, Australia and the US as well as travels that expanded her spiritual growth which included a Middle East Tour, Brazil, Mexico, Rio De Janeiro, Argentina, Iguassu Falls and Panama City. When she was in her scared place, her home, she loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and many friends, old and new. They filled her up with much love, laughter and joy. Her legacy is her family and she would often say she had an extended family, her White Hat volunteers with the Calgary Airport Authority. She founded the program seeing a need for it and nurtured its growth for over 18 years until her retirement. Elizabeth was socially conscious donating to various local charities believing abundance should be shared.
Elizabeth is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Tracy, Lorraine (Gerry) and Tanya (Cameron); and eight grandchildren, Amanda (Matt), Luke, Shawna, Jonathan, Harley, Sadie, Logan, and Kellan. She is also survived by her siblings, Bob, Bonny (Ken) and Bill (Joanne).
Elizabeth was predeceased by her first husband Mervin Nelson (Buddy) Bell; second husband John Wesley; and daughter Elizabeth.
Mom, thank you for all you taught us, how you loved us, the strength you gave us and the memories you created for us…We will never forget you. Love always Tracy, Lori and Tanya.
