ELIZABETH TERESA KOBIC
Elizabeth Teresa Kobic passed away peacefully with family by her side, on Wednesday, September 28, 2002 at the age of 70.
She was predeceased by her mother Anna, father Bronislaw and brothers, Joe and Kazmir. Elizabeth is lovingly remembered by her son Adam, granddaughter Alexay, sisters, Barbara (Craig), Diana (Cliff), brother Mark, niece Jessica and nephews, Tyler (Ashley), Glen and Derek. Elizabeth also leaves numerous extended family members and close friends to cherish her memory.
Elizabeth was born in Katowice, Poland on August 11, 1952. She immigrated to Canada at the age of eight, making Winnipeg her home. After graduating from Transcona Collegiate, Elizabeth started her journey through the working world, eventually getting hired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where she would spend 31 years. She met some lifelong friends while working there and would continue traditions of going to Sorrentos for lunch many years after retirement.
Elizabeth couldn't stay retired for long as she found herself wanting to keep busy, so she got a job at Sears where she would work for almost 10 years. Many more friends were made during this time with some becoming very close. When not working Elizabeth enjoyed gardening, canning, shopping, cooking, exploring new restaurants, travelling and above all else spending time with friends and family. Her idea of a perfect evening was a house full of the laughter of those close to her, good food and maybe a glass of wine. Elizabeth dedicated her life to making sure her only son Adam was comfortable and cared for and she was proud and happy to see the man he had become. She also especially cherished her young granddaughter Alexay, who was truly the apple of her eye.
As per Elizabeth's wishes there will be no funeral, with a private interment to take place at a later date.
If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba.
The family would like to give special thanks to CancerCare Manitoba, the Palliative Care Unit at St. Boniface Hospital and the staff at the Middlechurch Home of Winnipeg.
Rest Easy Mom, We Love You.

I will truly miss Liz. Beautiful lady. - Posted by: Larry McCartney (Friend ) on: Nov 23, 2022
Adam, I'm sorry for your loss, I can't imagine how difficult it must be losing someone as special as your mom. Though we've lost touch over the years I want you to know that I couldn't have asked for a better best friend or childhood growing up. Your mom always went out of her way to make us happy, some of my most cherished childhood memories were spent with the both of you. Having lived next door to you for seven years and spending more time with you than without I could only imagine the stress I must have put her through. Kids can be kids but the way I remember it when we were young we had the world on our shoulders, nothing could get in our way and we were always testing our boundaries. There were times I can admit I was a bad influence on you, we would do stupid things like climb your roof for fun or buy non-alcoholic beer from the Minut Mart just to see if we could get away with it but your mom would nevertheless always catch us. No matter how unpleased she was with you and I she always forgave us and would still be willing to let me sleepover. From the trips we took(Gimli/Grand Beach), her willingness to give us a ride to anywhere we pleased and enabling our long nights of gaming on your Sega, your mom made it all possible for us to live the best lives two kids could. I will always remember how willing she was to make space for me, I couldn't even begin to guess the number of sleepovers we had as kids but one thing I will always remember are the clowns your mom had in her room and how she would put them in her closet just so I wouldn't be scared at night. She always looked out for me like I was one of her own and I couldn't thank her enough for all she's done. Your mom was a real life superhero and a Saint. There was no one filled with more love and patience than her, she will be missed. - Posted by: Cory Procyshyn (Friend) on: Oct 17, 2022
Adam, We are so so sorry for your loss. We have many fond and funny memories from when we were neighbors on Thom Ave. You were our other son from a different mother and our kids were your brothers from another mother. It is sad we lost touch with your mother and you over the years. Our sincere condolences. Hugs, Karen and Mike. - Posted by: Karen and Mike Procyshyn (Old friends/neighbors) on: Oct 17, 2022
My condolences to Liz's son Adam, her sisters Barb and Diana and her brother Mark. It's so hard loosing a mother and sibling but knowing that she is no longer in pain hopefully eases your sadness. She is now at peace and is watching over you all. - Posted by: Cathy Penner (Family Friend) on: Oct 13, 2022

i am going to miss my dear friend, Liz was one of a kind and spending time with her was always memorable. We shared good times going for spicy Thai food and shopping for cars. Rest in peace Liz, until we meet again. My condolences to Adam and family. - Posted by: Tyler (Friend) on: Oct 08, 2022
