We were saddened and sorry to hear of Elizabeth’s death. So many fond memories of times spent in Ottawa and Niagra on the Lake. She was a thoughtful and generous friend with a keen intelligence and lovely sense of humour. Although years have passed since we last saw Elizabeth, the world suddenly felt that much smaller when we heard of her passing. Condolences to Edith, family and friends.
