ELIZABETH GRANT

November 24, 1921

– April 1, 2009

Elizabeth passed away peacefully in Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island. She will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by everyone who knew her. She was predeceased by her husband, Alex, and her brother, Tibor. She leaves: her beloved daughter Judith (Donald), and son Peter (Donna) and grandchildren Christopher, Kevin, Bryan, and Jeffrey, as well as six great grandchildren.

Both Elizabeth and Alex were born in Hungary and moved to Canada in 1951 after a five-year stay in Norway. Elizabeth excelled at everything she endeavoured: knitting, crocheting, gymnastics, figure skating, dancing, skiing, singing, gardening, hunting and fishing — all some of her favourite passions. She was also a gourmet cook and baker. At 70, Elizabeth took up painting, and got back into ballroom dancing and skiing. Alex and Elizabeth trained and showed hunting dogs, as well as raising horses while living in Dewinton, Alberta before moving to Salt Spring Island in 1987.

The family wishes to thank the paramedics, doctors and nursing staff who cared for Elizabeth so lovingly last week.

Honouring Elizabeth’s request, there will be a private graveside service. A gathering of friends and family will be held at a later date.
