ELIZABETH ANN LOVE
October 20, 1947- Winnipeg, Manitoba
September 17, 2019 - Calgary, Alberta
Elizabeth was born in Winnipeg, MB on October 20, 1947 to Robert and Alice Love. She grew up in Norwood (St. Boniface) where she had wonderful memories of time spent with her baby-boomer friends, winters skating outdoors, and summers spent at the cottage near Winnipeg Beach on Lake Winnipeg.
After graduating from grade 12 she completed her RT in Cytology (cancer detection) in 1967 from St. Boniface Hospital.
She married Denis Wall in 1968 and they had two children, Jason and Shannon. She was always grateful that she was a stay-at-home mom when her children were young. Her family moved to Calgary in 1976. Returning to work in 1983, she worked in various Cytology labs as well as 10 years at the old Children's Hospital. With a need to better herself Elizabeth took many courses at Mount Royal College and Continuing Ed. She also believed in giving back and volunteered throughout her life with Special Olympics, Roper Hull Homes and more. She completed her Personal Caregiver Certificate and spent many years caring for people in their homes. She was a certified ESL teacher with CCIS, encouraging and teaching new senior immigrants, thoroughly enjoying their company.
Later in life, she met Carl, the love of her life, with whom she spent 10 wonderful years with.
Elizabeth had a passion for learning, her cats and music, but her children were her greatest joy.
Elizabeth is survived by her children, Jason (Olivia) Wall and Shannon (Pete) Baker. She believed upon her passing that she would be reunited with her parents, her many aunts and uncles, Carl, and her best friend Ann.
At Elizabeth's request there will be no memorial service.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
We were cytology students together at St Boniface Hospital and both of us ended up in Calgary. Unfortunately, we never did reconnect once here. I’m happy to see that she had a full and satisfying life. My sincerest condolences to her friends and family. - Posted by: Camille Breton (Friend from Winnipeg and Cytology ) on: Sep 22, 2019
