Eliza Lillian Fairbairn

November 26, 1946

August 9, 2013

We are saddened to announce that our mother, Eliza Lillian Fairbairn, passed away at the age of 66. She was predeceased by her husband of 30 years, Wayne (Kit) Fairbairn, in 2011, and her infant son, Scott, in 1964.

Eliza leaves her daughter, Bonnie (Jim Prier) and three sons, Russell Foote (Zorina), Clifford Foote (Sharon), and Michael Foote; step-daughters Rae (Amardeep) and Darcy. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren, Jason, Jeff, Celine, Kyler, Morgan, Keni, Nolan, Alex, Kyle and Sheldon.

Our mother was born November 26, 1946, and started her life in Sandy Point, Nova Scotia and later moved to Prince Rupert, B.C. with her young family. She was one of eleven children born to Nellie and Lewis Hemeon. Of her siblings, she is survived by five sisters who all live in Nova Scotia.

Mom and her husband made many friends over the years living in Prince Rupert, Jackpine Flats (Terrace), and Sicamous, B.C. She then moved back to be with family and grandchildren in Prince Rupert.

Mom eagerly awaited spring and the first robins of the year. Wherever her journey took her she left a beautiful garden behind. Mom enjoyed working in her garden, doing crafts, and spending time with her grandchildren.

Mom requested no service be held, but she will be laid to rest with her

husband in Prince Rupert. A private family service will follow at a later date with prayers by Pastor Dick Knox.

Mom – may your garden forever grow.

We will miss you.
