ELIZABETH GERTRUDE GRAHAM, has been gently lifted up by the angels to be in the arms of Jesus on Wednesday, May 13th, 2015 at the age of 97 years.

She is the loving and devoted mother of Eugene (Eileen) of Lethbridge, Darlene (Bob) Ferrari of Calgary, Anne (Al) Uhrich of Innisfail, Terry (Barb) of Lethbridge, Ken (Sally) of Lethbridge, James (Sandi) of Coutts and Laurel of Lethbridge.

She was predeceased by her husband Grant, step-son Richard and siblings Alma, Burga, Felix, Clara, Dorothy, Ida and Bridget.

Elizabeth was born in Allerston, AB to August and Anna Wensmann on November 30, 1917. In 1936, Elizabeth and Grant were married and together they farmed east of Coutts, AB until retiring to Milk River in 1982. She then moved to Lethbridge in 2007, where she resided until her passing.

Our Mom and Grandmother was an inspiration to us who were blessed to know her. Her family was her lifeline and to her, her greatest achievement. Many fond memories have been made with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren for them to cherish. She was our “rock”- always there when needed, putting us all ahead of her own needs at any given time. Mom was a long standing member of the C.W.L. in Coutts. She was a woman of many talents, but the best was “just being our Mom.” Rest in Peace. We will miss that beautiful smile. We love you.
