To Walt, Sharon, Marlin, and Charlene & families,

I have fond and loving memories of Aunt Liz.
She had such a tender and caring way about her that we all loved. She was a proud and classy lady yet displayed a mild calmness which allowed her to be so approachable to us as young children. We enjoyed many family gatherings,camping trips, and visits over the years.
May your grief become strength as time goes on and allow the smiles and laughter to re-surface with each memory of her.
Her softness and shy smile will be forever etched in my memory.
We love you Aunt Liz and I have thought about you everyday.
My condolences to my cousins and families.
Marnie and Family

Aunt Elizabeth will always be in my heart and very fondly remembered. 'Aunt Liz' was such a kind person with a very warm heart and a sincerely comforting voice and smile. I have so many great memories of her during our many family-get-togethers, competitions picking berries/beans, Sheridan Lake and camping trips. All our condolence to my cousins and the rest of the family, Terry, Michael and Daylin Desmond.

To the Drage family, I will miss your mother. I loved listening to her voice and stories, her gentle soft conversation with me, her laugh that could make me laugh to tears. Miss you Auntie Liz. My mother Rose will miss you so much. With love always, Maggie.

Aunty Liz ~ what a beautiful woman she was to me. I always, as a child thought she was one of the prettiest and the most calm kindest ladies I ever saw and when she spoke I was mesmerized by her beautiful warm voice. I would ask Aunty Liz almost any question just to listen to her melodious voice. She loved to laugh and I have many memories on our ranches of Aunty Liz and my Mom laughing and cracking up and Aunty Liz saying "Oh Rose!" in THAT voice!
My Dad Michael liked to gently tease her at the supper table and she was so shy. A true Angel my Aunty Liz, with the patience and kindness of an Angel too. I will miss you Aunty Liz but I know you have been welcomed with love and smiles by all those who have gone before you, your parents, Uncle Romey, Uncle Alf, Uncle Jack and my Dad Michael, and I imagine you all in Heaven having a wonderful visit and you laughing with that beautiful voice and that shy way you had about you. Thank you for being a truly positive influence on my life. My thoughts are with all the Drage family at this sad time. Patricia ~ niece.

We're so very sorry to read about your mom's death. It was obvious how much she was loved, and what a close-knit family she had raised. Our mom followed her to heaven on Friday the 16th. God bless us all in our time of grief.
