I always admired Elizabeth for her grace and intelligence. She was a beautiful lady and so pleasant to talk with whenever we would meet. She always had a smile and a pleasant greeting. She will be missed at St. John's. I too suffer a sad and heavy heart at this time and can appreciate how her family feels right now, especially Grahame. God bless you at tjos time.

Please accept my condolences for such a wonderful and sweet lady who I admired so much. I love her book of poems and she gave me the courage to write my own little book of poems. She will be sadly missed by so very very many...

Elizabeth became my friend when I was working on my Master's degree in English at U.W.O. Although I have not seen her for many years I find myself often thinking of many jewls of information that I learned from her. One, in particular, was to not be afraid to gently voice one's opinion when a comment from a student or a professor was not acceptable. Criticism is just another learning tool. I am sorry I was not able to pay my respects personally but I was out of town at the time and have just caught up with the newspapers today. My heartfelt condolences are sent with love to Graeme and Elizabeth's family.

I was sorry to hear of your mother's death, Cory. She made quite an impression on me during my teenage years and after, especially when she turned her energies to academic life. I often passed her in the hallways at Western when I returned to study English. The energy in her voice was infectious.

I'm very sorry to learn of the passing of Professor Bieman. I was her research assistant for the writing of her book Plato Baptized. I remember Elizabeth with such fondness. Her kindness, generosity and vast knowledge. I can still hear her voice after nearly thirty years. A really wonderful lady.
