Obituary of Elizabeth Waterfield
Peacefully at home, on Wednesday December 6th, Liz Waterfield gently went to sleep.
During Liz’s 7 decades of life, she experienced considerable health challenges, as such; there is a beautiful balance that her passing was so peaceful.
Beloved wife of 49 years to devoted partner Patrick Waterfield, and loving mother to Jennifer Folk and Angela Waterfield. Liz also leaves behind her son-in-law, Derek Folk, and cherished grandchildren Olivia and Jaxson Folk. She also leaves behind many siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who will miss her dearly.
Although Liz became more private in her later years, she connected with and inspired many people throughout her life and travels.
From her family members, to neighbourhood kids, many Seekers found themselves drawn to ‘Lighthouse-Liz’. People were often greeted by an open door, a warm meal, and a safe space to just ‘be’.
One of Liz’s favorite expressions was, “We are human beings, not human doings.” A very simple and yet wise reminder of what really matters in life; compassion, love and forgiveness.
Cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
The family warmly invites you to share your stories, photos and memories.
Liz always felt that the most precious thing a person could give was their time, and respected the work at Mission Services, especially at Christmastime.
As such, in lieu of flowers, a donation to Mission Services would be welcomed should people feel called to offer a gift.
