Elizabeth O'Reilly Obituary

Sadly, our Mother, Elizabeth O’Reilly passed away peacefully on February 27, 2024, at The Manor Village Varsity at the age of 95 years.

Elizabeth was born in Swanlinbar, County Cavan, Ireland on June 09, 1928. She was the daughter of Michael (Mic) & Mary McGovern and sister to 5 siblings.

Elizabeth met Peter O’Reilly at a dance, fell in love and were married on April 27, 1949.  Peter immigrated to Canada, arriving on March 17, 1957 in Halifax and made his way to Calgary where he got things set up for Elizabeth and the children’s arrival.  Then on May 09, 1957 Elizabeth and the children arrived by boat into Quebec City and travelled by train to Calgary where they were all reunited with their husband and father. Peter and Elizabeth resided in Calgary since 1957.

Mom worked hard all her life at various jobs and places in Calgary and retired in her early 70’s from The Jubilee Auditorium. Mom instilled a strong work ethic into all of her children.

Mom believed that everything could be discussed or sorted out with “a nice cuppa tea and a piece of soda bread”. She loved being with her family and was always game for any celebration, party or family gathering.

Elizabeth was married to our Dad, until his passing in 2022, for 73 years.

Left to mourn for Mom are her 5 children, Tony (Laura), Michael (Carolyn), Anne, Peter and Dan (Dana). She also leaves many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and numerous nieces & nephews in Ireland & U.S.A.

We are heartbroken to lose our beautiful Mother.

“There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are you will always be in our hearts”

We would like to acknowledge and thank the staff at The Manor Village Varsity for the great care they provided to Mom.

A private family Funeral Mass will be held in the near future.
