She married Russ in 1958 and lived in Vancouver, Montreal and Winnipeg before returning to Vancouver. Elizabeth taught Grade 2 in all those locations. We moved to Chemainus in 1991 where we built our dream home. We enjoyed
extensive travel in a variety of RVs across Canada, the US and Mexico. Elizabeth was a voracious reader and a wonderful cook.
Predeceased by her parents, Cedric and Maude Hicks and brother Boyd. Elizabeth developed Alzheimer’s Disease resulting in home support, respite care and finally a move to Chemainus Health Care Centre.
