CHEYNE, Elizabeth Ruth

Mrs. Elizabeth Cheyne

On January 8th 2021, Elizabeth Cheyne passed away at home, 2 days short of her 89th birthday.    

Elizabeth will be fondly remembered by her 3 children, Sue, Diane and Michael; 4 grandchildren; William, Josh, Alysha and Isaiah as well as 11 great-grandchildren.    She will also be fondly remembered by her close friend Al Martine and her friends and staff at the Wellesley residence where she lived.

Elizabeth was a great believer in helping others and spent many hours volunteering for different causes.    Her hobbies were cooking and sewing and she was very talented at both.   She had a great passion for travelling and cruising was her idea of a perfect holiday.    She also enjoyed a good game of bridge where she could be quite competitive.

Family was very important to her and she treasured the time she was able to spend with them.   Family gatherings were her joy.

Many thanks to Nova and CLSC Lac St. Louis for their help at the end.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

If desired a donation can be made to Covenant House, one of the organizations that was dear to her heart, or Nova West Island who were so good to her at the end.

    I was glad to be able to talk to Elizabeth this last summer. She was heartfelt and soft spoken. We talked about her family and the events in our lives. It brought back many fond memories. Life is a journey. For all that we are, for all that we have done, lives on through others and influences the course of things to come. This life is our temporary home. We look forward to a new beginning, with renewed hope and meaning.

    On January 8th we lost a big part of our family. Nana…. you came to my football games when I was kid. You brought us timbits and made us sandwiches. I remember some players asking if you were coming as they were looking forward to the food you would bring. I remember the sleepovers and going to the pool. I remember you always sending me a card on my birthday. I remember you seeing and holding Benjamin for the first time and seeing and holding Nathan for the first time. I remember you coming to my wedding and telling me how proud you were of me. I remember having Wyatt and wanting so bad for you to meet him and hold him but due to the lock down you couldn’t. I remember you seeing him from your window and through video calls and I remember the excitement of hearing they would allow gatherings for Christmas and thinking you would finally hold Wyatt and then the disappointment of them taking that away. I remember the love you showed and gave us. I’ll always remember you. We will always remember you. Love you Nana.
    Bye for now.

    We’re still trying to wrap our minds around that Nana is gone…
    I’ll forever miss the boys running down the hall as soon as we got off the elevator, your smile on your face each time was priceless.
    I’ll miss all the desserts you always said you saved for us, whenever we visited.
    I’ll miss your laugh so much ❤
    I promise you the boys won’t forget you, & I’ll make sure they tell Wyatt all about you.
    These 2 pictures are my absolute favorite.
    I am forever grateful for the 11 & 1/2 years I got to know you & all the time we got to spend together
    Love you,
    Bye bye for now
