Pugh, Elizabeth Blair, cherished daughter, sister, niece, aunt, mother, and generous friend, died on April 23, 2016, in the Oliver hospital.
“Libby” was born in Oliver in 1950. She shared a deep connection with nature and animals and loved hiking, horseback riding, skiing, swimming and digging in the earth. Libby possessed a rare combination of sweetness and grit. Despite a crushing life-long illness, Libby’s quick wit and loving spirit endured. She was full of wonder and creativity and laughter. She had boundless compassion and gave what little she had to others in need. Thank you Libby for touching our lives in ways we could never have imagined.
Libby is predeceased by her father, David Pugh, her mother, Winifred Pugh, and her brother, Roger Pugh. She is survived by her sisters, Meredith, Deborah, Alison, and Mary, brothers, David, Donald, and John, by her Aunt San, and by numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 pm, Friday April 29, 2016 at the Country Squire Retirement Villa. A private celebration of Libby’s life will be held at the family home at Gallagher Lake. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation to the B.C. Schizophrenia Society or the Country Squire Rehab Activities Fund would be greatly appreciated.
Libby’s family extends gratitude to Dr. Jaco Bellingan and the nursing staff at the Oliver hospital for your kindness and care.
