It is with great sadness that the family of Elizabeth Wingert of Calgary announce her peaceful passing on Monday, March 26, 2007 at the age of 60 years from a long battle with cancer.
Elizabeth was born the eldest of four children to Alex and Anne Maguire in Trochu, Alberta on May 28, 1946. She later moved to Calgary in 1950. Elizabeth loved to spend time with family as she was warm, thoughtful, loving and compassionate. She will be sadly missed but it is comforting to know she is now dancing with the angels, free and happy.
