Violet Elizabeth “Liz” Ricketts

Elizabeth Ricketts peacefully passed away with her family by her side on April 1, 2015 at the Kimberley Special Care Home “The Pines” at 92 years of age.

Liz was born at home on the family farm on May 15, 1922 in South Himsworth Township, ON. She moved to Trail in 1951 and married Bert Ricketts. In 1953 they moved to Kimberley.

Liz is survived by her brother Homer Langford of Kitchener, ON, sons Melvin and Eric, daughter Betty, grandchildren Tyler and Myles Ricketts and Calvin Romane, and great grandchild London. She was predeceased by her four brothers Melvin, Orville, Wilmer and Bert Langford and her sister Thelma.

We will miss our mother and grandmother with heavy hearts but we are happy that she is once again with the love of her life Bert Ricketts. A special thank you to the Alberton family who were very dear to her.

There will be a gathering of friends and family at a later date to celebrate Liz’s life.
