Elisabeth "Lisa" O'Kill
Elizabeth O’Kill, of Spencer Home in Moncton, passed away peacefully on October 30th, 2018 at the age of 101.
Elizabeth was born on September 16th, 1917, in Chatham, Ontario, the daughter of the late Alida and Theophile Pieters. Besides her parents she was predeceased by her 9 siblings and her little girl, Victoria, who passed away at the age of 4.
Elizabeth (AKA Libby in Ontario), had a successful 26 year career with Sears Canada, in Chatham and Leamington, Ontario, where she became their first female Store Manager, prior to retiring in 1982. Lisa was an active volunteer with CNIB in Moncton and Riverview.
Lisa had a very full and happy life. As well as having a great career and bringing up two boys, she also outlived 5 husbands. A lot of life happens in 100 years…
Lisa (Mom and Nana) will be sadly missed by her sons, Alex Legood (wife Kathy) and Paul Legood (wife Margie), her beloved Legood grandchildren, Jesse of Moncton, Keith, David and Vicki of BC, as well as a number of great grandchildren, loving nieces, nephews and good friends.
In keeping with her wishes there will be no visitation or funeral service. A Celebration of Lisa’s life and her internment will take place in Chatham Ontario at a later date.
