HOLMES, Elizabeth Anne

March 5, 1947 – London, Ontario
September 27, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that the family of Elizabeth Holmes announces her sudden passing on Thursday, September 27, 2018 after a short battle with cancer.

Elizabeth is lovingly remembered by her step-children, Shauna Reinhardt (Douglas), John (Tony) Holmes, and Byron (Sandy) Holmes (Debbie); grandchildren Emma and Cole Reinhardt, Chad, Fraser, and Marcus Holmes; and great-grandchildren Liam, Conor, Eve, Isla, Wyatt and Clark Holmes. Elizabeth was married to her kindred spirit Byron Edward Holmes for thirty-two years before his passing in 2003.

Liz will be very fondly remembered for her love of family, culinary prowess, exquisite fashion, impeccable etiquette, quick wit and her global travel adventures. Liz strongly believed in giving back and over the years she was actively involved with numerous charitable organizations. She often volunteered at the Veterans Food Bank and most recently she worked with Silvera for Seniors, where she played a pivotal role in an initiative to improve the quality of life for seniors.

The family will be gathering together for a small ceremony to celebrate Liz’s life.
If friends so desire, the family respectfully asks that a donation be made in Liz’s name to cancer research or the Mustard Seed.

In living memory of Elizabeth Holmes, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W., Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.
