I met Mrs Jones last year when she required nursing care for her foot. She was an inspiring, engaging woman and I genuinely enjoyed visiting her. I am truly sorry to hear that she has passed away. My thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.

I had the pleasure of knowing Elizabeth on the WCA Board. I remember how excited she was as grandchildren came along and what joy they brought to her.
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother, mother in law, grandmother...

To Chris and Cate
I was saddened to read of the death of your mother in today's Globe and Mail. When I saw Colborne Street United mentioned in her obituary, it took me back to our time at St George's and I made the connection. I am so sorry for your loss.
We don't mind getting older, and we enjoy watching our children get older, but it sure is hard to watch our parents age.
Remembering you both fondly from those school/yearbook days(which I have just unearthed!), and wishing you comfort in the days ahead

We send heartfelt condolences to Elizabeth's family. We share your sorrow in the loss of a very good and loved friend. When we moved to London, Elizabeth was very kind and helpful in getting us established, including the UWO Senior Alumni lectures and bridge, and our Sunningdale club where she was Edna's bridge partner. We have enjoyed dinner and bridge at her homw and were invited to her 80th birthday party. She brought food to our home and arranged a bridge game during Edna's recovery from illness.
She will always be remembered.
