Her gentle walk of faith in her Lord and Saviour was a true testament to those who knew her. In her most difficult moments she found strength in the Verse of Jeremiah 29:11 and 12 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you; Plans to give you a hope and a future, then you will call upon me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you.” Elizabeth was a long time member of the Alliance Church in Vernon. A special thanks to the doctors, nurses, caregivers and friends in particular, Marie, Darlene and Sharon, that provided her with such loving care during recent months.
