TOWER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-12-13 published
TOWER, Elizabeth Ann
Wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, community activist, businesswoman, adventurer, gardener, designer, artist, singer. Born October 17, 1934, in Toronto. Died May 29 in Orangeville, Ontario, of ovarian cancer complications, aged 72.
By Elizabeth HARRINGTON, Page L8
Elizabeth TOWER was a trailblazer who started her own placement agency, Tower Total Personnel, in the 1970s while raising four teenagers on her own.
She believed women could have 360 degrees of life, balancing family with a successful career and making a difference in others' lives. In 2004, she was awarded ExtraOrdinary Woman of the Year by the Canadian Association of Women Executives and Entrepreneurs.
Elizabeth nurtured relationships with other women and always had time to help and offer encouragement. She started the first clothing drive for women who needed a suit for job interviews.
Her eldest son, Eddie Joe, wrote an essay in elementary school about his mother titled My Mother, the Do-Gooder:
"On Monday nights her confident hands make papier-mâché jewellery. On the third and fifth days of the week, chosen for her cunning ability by Father Harding, she is the president of the Catholic Women's League. On Wednesday morning her sleekness and good timing bring her to the home for unwed mothers to teach jewellery making, while the same night she is at art school learning how to paint."
Elizabeth loved Toronto passionately - the energy, the speed of business, the arts and culture. But 10 years ago, she and her husband and soulmate, Ray TOWER, decided to live a simpler life and moved to their crooked little century-old farmhouse in Horning's Mills north of Caledon, Ontario
The quest for a quiet life never happened. Elizabeth created magnificent gardens and preserved her famous jams for another business, Liz's Larder, while throwing herself into the community. She formed task forces and economic development projects and once again became a Pied Piper for women's business and family issues.
Accolades and honours were prolific throughout her lifetime. A pioneer of the women's movement of the 1970s, she was a founding member of many women's groups, advisory boards and trade missions.
She had few regrets, but one big one was not getting her driver's licence. Stubborn but persistent, she was still taking lessons days before entering the hospital for the last time.
Liz lived life at full speed, and only the most virulent complications from ovarian cancer finally slowed her down.
An eternal optimist, right to her final hours she was sure she would beat the odds and bounce back one more time.
Our lives are so much richer for having known her. She was our angel in life and now our true angel.
Elizabeth HARRINGTON is Elizabeth TOWER's friend.
