It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Elizabeth Tresidder.  Her directness, infectious energy and willingness to help anyone made her a pleasure to be around.  She passed away peacefully in Royal Jubilee Hospital after a three-and-a-half-year struggle with Young-Onset Alzheimer’s disease.

She is survived by her loving spouse Grant; brothers Richard and Ian; niece Laura and nephews Daniel and Ryan.

“Elizabeth will be deeply missed by all.”

At the request of the family, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC, 300-828 W. 8th Avenue, Vancouver, B.C. V5Z 1E2.

    I hope Elizabeth is no longer in pain. I sure missed her here at work. She was here one day and gone the next. This amazing soft, gentle, kind, compassionate soul was a pleasure to have in the office. My condolences for the family’s loss for a loved one who suffered too much for too long. May you all find solace some day in your most cherished fun, loving memories of her.

    I was very sorry to hear of Elizabeth’s passing. The last few years must have been a difficult time for the family. We worked together for several years and I always enjoyed her personality and respected her work ethic and advice. My sincere condolences to the family.

    Deepest condolences to Grant and her brothers, and her niece and nephews. I went to Junior high and high school with Elizabeth, and we had so much fun with other girlfriends driving around in my mum’ s Volkswagen Bug. I remember her with lots of laughter and fun times. Great memories. May your great memories help you all through this difficult time.

    My deepest condolences to the family for Elizabeth’s passing. I considered her a friend and colleague. I was around when her Mom suffered the same condition and passed and remember Elizabeth’s unbelievable energy. She was a formidable opponent in a game of racquet. We both really enjoyed the competition we shared. I am deeply saddened and shocked to hear about her condition.
