Elizabeth’s early years were spent at her family’s apple orchard near Haydon. She attended Haydon Public School, Bowmanville High School and went on to Normal school in Peterborough to become a teacher. Elizabeth enjoyed teaching in Starkville, Port Credit and Oshawa schools until 1955 when she married David. They farmed north of Tyrone for over 60 years, raising their family and created a lifetime of memories. Elizabeth was a devoted Christian who took an active role in her church and her community. After David’s passing in 2015, Elizabeth began a new chapter of her life at Port Perry Villa where she enjoyed her remaining years.
