We commend to God's loving and merciful arms our much loved daughter, Elizabeth Grace Robinson, who passed from this life while we were with her at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, BC, on Thursday, October 18, 2018. Elizabeth was born in Windsor, Ontario, a beautiful blond blue eyed baby full of joy and love. Her early years were spent in Windsor, surrounded by parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Family came to mean a lot to her. A lifetime later, she still recounted, with humour and amusement, stories of her cousins and the antics they shared. Her early adolescence involved a short move to Toronto where her brother, Joshua (Josh) joined our family. Calgary was next, where Elizabeth became "Liz", made many teen friends and seemed to embrace life in Junior High and High School. As a young woman, she was eager to experience the world, which included studying Chemical Technology at SAIT and working at an insurance company. Elizabeth moved to Vancouver in her mid 30’s and became "Lizzy" to her friends. Through the years of visiting her there, even while her health became compromised, we caught glimpses of her caring and doing for others in the area where she lived. We learned to see Jesus in the poor, the addicted and the mentally ill, the "least of Jesus' brothers and sisters. We learned not to judge and we learned to love unconditionally even in the occasional darkness. Elizabeth (Liz/Lizzy) Grace Robinson taught us many things and we are blessed to have been able to call her our daughter. The pain and the depth of our grief will be healed when we see her again. Elizabeth will be deeply missed by her parents, Marjorie and Stephen Robinson; her brother, Josh; and her grandmother, aunts, uncles and cousins. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church (541 Silvergrove Drive NW Calgary) on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 2:00 pm.
