NANCY ELIZABETH LIVINGSTON (published on January 10, 2009)



NANCY ELIZABETH LIVINGSTON Nancy Elizabeth Livingston of Calgary passed away on December 31, 2008. Nancy was born in Winnipeg on October 27, 1932 and spent the greater part of her life in this city. She spent most of her working life in several Winnipeg companies as a Human Resources Professional. She was also a volunteer for Big Sisters, YWCA and Planned Parenthood. Nancy treated all persons that she met with kindness and seemed to live by the motto; Let no one regret that they have met you. Nancy and her husband Alex, aka Sandy, moved to Calgary in 1996 and enjoyed hiking and walking in the mountains. She also enjoyed her aquacize classes at Killarney Pool, reading, knitting and traveling. Nancy's travels included both early family camping trips to Rushing River, Ont., the Rockies and one memorable adventure to the Maritimes that included a station wagon, tent trailer, four kids and a dog. Her more recent and relaxing trips alone with Alex included trips to the U.K., Europe, Caribbean, South Pacific. Nancy is survived by her husband Alex; her children, David, Colin (Diane), Kathryn (Brent), Malcolm; and her grandchildren, Andrew, Emily and Heather. She is also survived by her sister Ruth (Jerry) of Vancouver Island and sister-in-law Nan (Sam) of Leeds, England. Thanks to the many health care professionals and volunteers who took care of Mom and allowed her to live out her final days with love and dignity. In particular the staff and volunteers at Sarcee Hospice in Calgary. Special thanks to our Dad who was cook, nurse, and patient caregiver during Mom's last few years. It has revealed a side of him that most of us did not realize existed. Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow. In accordance with Nancy's wishes, no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, 710 - 10123 99 Street, Edmonton AB T5J 3H1, or Carewest Sarcee Hospice, 3504 Sarcee Road SW, Calgary AB T3E 4T4.
