Passed away peacefully at home in her 72nd year. Loving wife of James Vallance for 27 years. Survived by her sister Evelyn Bryans (Everette King); brothers Brian Morrice and David Morrice; in-laws Charles Vallance (Wilma Spence), Robert Vallance (Kathryn), and Jeanne Vallance; as well as her many nieces and nephews. Liz was a long-time employee at 3M. She took great pride in volunteering for Meals on Wheels; following her retirement, she became a part time volunteer for Meals on Wheels as an office assistant. Liz will be forever remembered by all her friends and family as fun, loving, spirited, with a passion for the arts and most of all her uplifting zest for life. She loved all creatures, especially her Jack Russell Terrier, Harley. Liz enjoyed seated yoga and Nia dance at the Kiwanis Seniors’ Centre.

Kathleen McDaceZil, my beautiful, beautiful friend. I carry so many wonderful memories of our time together. Cruising Ipperwash, Wasaga, and the Bend in your 195? Buick Electra Convertible, Mosport weekends in “the Blinding Light,” dancing out loud into the wee hours at Lady Di’s. The Ladies Garden Tea parties, dressed to the nines, hats, gloves and dresses bought at the Salvation Army. The copious selection of alcoholic deserts and the feasting after six when the gentlemen arrived to join a rather tipsy and unruly crowd of ....refined young ladies? Lol! Our trip thru Central America where we had one of the most magnificent days of our young lives at Palenque. I remember venturing out that morning and after doing some in-depth research of the local fungi , exploring every muddy nook and cranny of the ruins. Then to make the most perfect day more perfect, we discovered the stream running just below the ruins in the jungle. Stripping off our mucky clothes, grabbing the nearest vine and swinging laughing and naked down and into that crystal clear water. We discovered the essence and joy of life that day my friend. You always loved Christmas too, but were cursed with a very unhealthy habit of snooping through closets during that time of year. I remember arriving at yours and Patti’s apartment a few days before Santa’s arrival. You had on a new outfit you’d found hidden in the closet and couldn’t resist trying on. You were thrilled Patti had gotten you such a fabulous Christmas gift only to find out Christmas morning she’d gotten it for her mother! Bahahahaha Oh, and our Halloween Party when my parents arrived unannounced just to be sure you weren’t leading me astray, you being the elder and all...boy did they have it wrong! Good, good, good memories Zil!❤️ Then I moved west and you found love with your Jamie. I will never forget. I love you girlfriend and while my heart breaks knowing I’ll never see your smile again in this life, I feel blessed and rejoice that you were a part of mine. Ps: Save me a spot up there. I’m sure we could still find some belly laughs and trouble to get into. Your Forever Friend Kathy
Lynda McRaeSadly you will be missed
