Elizabeth passed away peacefully at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital on Saturday, August 3, 2019. She was born on December 26, 1930 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Elizabeth moved with her parents Christy and Augusta Harding to Victoria as a young girl, where she attended St. Anne’s Academy from kindergarten through grade 12.

A year or two at Victoria College preceded Elizabeth going into training at St. Joseph’s General Hospital. As a nurse, she would eventually marry Ross Sinclare, who as a doctor had privileges at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

During her working life, Elizabeth was involved in nursing and was the head nurse for the nuns at their retirement home also in the Victoria area for many years.

Elizabeth is survived by her son, Christopher Sinclare; his wife, Pene; and Christopher’s children, Spencer, Kristin and Chelsea. With thanks to Kristin, there are also two grandchildren, namely Kennedy (age 3) and Sutton (age 2 weeks).

The family wishes to thank the staff at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital for taking such good care of Elizabeth during her final few years.

    Please accept my sincere condolences.
    I had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth at St. Ann’s Residence from 1989-1994.
    Elizabeth was a mentor and a spiritual guide. She taught me about nursing, about the Anglican Church, and about living a gracious, courageous and compassionate life.
    My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time.

    Grateful thoughts for a wonderful ‘angel of mercy’and prayers of condolence to all of Elizabeth’s family. My aunt was a Sister of St. Ann who lived at St. Ann’s Residence; I remember Mrs. Grassick as a most dedicated nurse, and friend and companion to all.

    Christopher (Christy) and Family,

    Sincere condolences to you all on your Mother’s passing. Your Mom was quite simply a wonderful person. I don’t think I ever saw her without a smile on her face, and she always had kind things to say about everyone.

    She lived a full and rewarding life, and she will be missed and remembered with highest respect.

    Chris Blaney
