elevated 5rWu9 Obituary
Our beloved Elizabeth passed away peacefully on April 1st, surrounded by the people she held most dear. One of the brightest stars in our personal firmament, she was so many things to so many people. To Andy, her husband of 11 years, she was the irreplaceable love of his life. To Kathleen and John (deceased in 2003), a daughter who loved them fiercely. To Jeff (Anne), Janis (Jason), and Blake (deceased in 2020) (Helen), a little sister who loved and was loved by them above all others. She was the kind of sister-in-law that Shanti (Kalan) had always hoped for, and a daughter-in-law to Ram (Aurea) who loved her like one of their own. And to Savannah, Haley, Alison, Isabella , and Jake (Fidani), as well as Carson and Blake (Gidwani-Milley), she was a devoted Aunt who never failed to show them just how loved and special they were. In addition to all these, she was a dear and constant friend to all who had the good fortune to fall within her orbit.
elevated 5rWu9 She never shied away from a challenge, and even the most daunting obstacles in her life were met with adamantine determination. Her success and achievements were matched only by her humility. This made her a role model many aspired to emulate in their own lives. Those who do so carry her within them, in their thoughts and actions.
elevated 5rWu9 She will be severely missed, and the degree of sorrow that her absence has wrought in all our lives reminds us that grief is the price of love. And our Elizabeth was so very, very loved.
elevated 5rWu9 Donations may be made in her honour to the UHN Foundation, Transplant Campaign.

Jeff, deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved sister Liz. Sending you and your family love, prayers and lots of hugs as you celebrate and honor Liz’s life.
She carried a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips between her fingertips
She carried a pearl
In perfect condition
What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark
No longer stings
Because Liz found goodness in everything
Miss you girl.
LIz, thank you for so wonderfully loving, understanding and caring for Andy. And for lighting his life, and everyone’s around you, as no one else ever could. You’re an inspiration and a joy for all of us to carry in our heart. Listening to likely your favourite piano album…the prettiest part…Someone To Watch Over Me…so comforted to know…know you’re Watchin’ Over Andy!
Our sincerest condolences to you Andy. We were so sorry and shocked to see this. Liz was a gentle soul and wonderful neighbour. Sending hugs from over the Woburn fence. Our thoughts are with you. Linda and Peter
Liz was one of those very special people we come across in life. She was a great classmate and friend during MBA and afterwards.

Liz was such a genuinely kind and considerate person – even when we were teenagers. I have so many fond memories of Liz in high school and beyond. Though I hadn’t seen her in several years, I was incredibly saddened to hear of her passing. All of the heartfelt messages on this page are a testament to what a special person Liz was.
LIz, you were such a great person to work with during my years at CBRE. My sincerest condolences to her husband and family.
It’s been many years – but we are so sad to hear of Beth’s passing. You certainly have had more than your share of loss.
