HEWSON, Elizabeth Brock
Passed away quietly in her home on Thursday, March 27, 2008, in her 91st year. She was the beloved daughter of the late Fred and Jessie HEWSON. Predeceased by her brothers Frederic (Ted) and Geale HEWSON and survived by a dear sister-in-law, Mrs. Geale (Peg) HEWSON. Loving aunt of Beth HEWSON (Tom ZINK), Ric HEWSON (Dorothee RETTERATH), Margie (Dale) LOUGHEED and Ben HEWSON. Adored great aunt of Sean (Erika), Jesse, Sandy (Amber), David, Heather, Jody, Stephanie and Michael. Cherished great-grand aunt of River GEALE.
Elizabeth, or Buzz, as she was affectionately known by her closest of Friends, made lasting impressions throughout her lifetime. Her exceptional organizational abilities were nurtured at an early age and surfaced most prominently when she served as a dietician in the Royal Canadian Air Force overseas from 1943-45. This was followed by 38 dedicated years as a dietician at Burwash Hall, Victoria University, University of Toronto. She retired in 1983 to Niagara-on-the-Lake and more recently Virgil.
Buzz's modesty was outshone by her generosity, and she provided much quiet support of many non-profit organizations throughout her retirement years. As per Elizabeth's wishes, a private family service will take place on April 12, 2008. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Chapel of the Morgan Funeral Homes. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Palliative Care, Pleasant Manor Retirement Village in Virgil, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
