Obituary of Elizabeth Ann LaPierre

Age 71, Grand Desert, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 16th surrounded by her family. Although she lived in many places as a self described “army brat”, she was proud to have been born in Dartmouth, N.S. in the same room as her father. Once her own kids were grown, Liz graciously opened her home to provide childcare for many families in her community, lovingly referring to these children as “her kiddos”. Liz was thoughtful, kind, and loved to make strangers smile. She will be remembered fondly for her love of giraffes, sense of humour, and enormous heart. She is survived by husband, Richard; children, Adam (Stacy), Jacob (Emily), Maggie (Caitlin); beloved grandchildren, Roland, Martin, Paisley, and Callie; along with countless nieces, nephews; cousins, and treasured friends. She is predeceased by her parents, Burton and Elizabeth (Betty) (Coish) Harrison; and her two brothers William & Thomas (Barbara). Arrangements have been entrusted to, T. J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, 71 McQuade Lake Crescent, Halifax. To leave words of comfort and condolence for the family please visit, www.tjtracey.com. The family extends sincere thanks to the nurses, physicians, and hospital staff at the QEII Cancer Center, Twin Oaks Memorial Hospital, and all those who cared for Liz along the way. In lieu of flowers or monetary donations, the family asks that you commit one random act of kindness in honour of Liz.
