My beautiful Liz
I was so lost for words on February 11/ Your daughter Laura told me that the family at your side you passed away. Being friends for over 26 years and working side by side for 8 years at Sir Robert Borden BTI. This is an Enormous loss. Any student needing help you were right there . Stan would say to me, that Liz always ceases to amaze me she’s the first one to grab a hammer and climb up the ladder ready to get the job done. I sure hope the higher power knows what they have up in heaven. Because down here we will feel loss for many years to come.

Liz was appreciated during her teaching years in Scarborough for a variety of contributions. Not only did she share her cooking skills in the hospitality department at Sir Robert L Borden BTI, but she volunteered at Rouge Valley Conservation Centre fundraising events, and helped her friends, like us, with her practical abilities- in our case, wallpapering. She was a wonderful friend, and will be missed. John and Elizabeth Sherk

My dear friend and neighbor, 20 years ago you introduced yourself and shortly after our friendship took off... I will forever think of you while watching the birds at my feeder and looking at my flowers which you were a big part in giving me, you taught me a lot about birds & flowers as the books you gave me will always be handy. My best memory that brings a smile every time, is the time we laid on my deck at around 11 p.m. and waited for a comet to pass by... the chat and the giggles like two school girls will always fill my heart with happiness when I think of you. Miss you forever, see you one day. Bernice

Liz and I became friends during her teaching years in Toronto. She was a bright, cheerful and loving person. She would easily help fix the weather stripping on the house door or dress up and come dancing! She was so appreciative of all her experiences and all those she loved! My deepest condolences to her family and community of friends. I am so grateful to have known her in this life!
Sent with Much Love
