It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom “Liz” after a 10 month battle with stage 4 lung cancer.

Liz was born in Dauphin Manitoba on August 02, 1941, and wiil always be remembered in the hearts of her Daughters Monica Dell (Bill) Rene’ Zeit (Adolf ) and Melodie Oldegbers (Jason), Grandcildren, great grandchildren, Family and friends. She is predeceased by her husband David Blomquist, Son Lionel Blomquist, Mom Anne Rosteski and Brother Edward Rosteski.

Mom was an avid gardener and also loved to bake. Her pies were amazing:). She had a great sense of humour and always liked to beat us at Crib. She was a fixture at Bingo in 100 Mile and was always up for a road trip to the casino.

Mom was one of the biggest Canucks fans and always hoped she would be around to see them win the Stanley Cup someday. It was entertaining to watch her watch the games. She was very vocal!!!

A Celebration of life will be held on Saturday August 4 from 12- 5 pm at 1652 Sheridan Drive, Kamloops BC. A time for stories and memories for all.

Donations in Mom’s memory can be made to the 100 Mile District Hospital.

Her Journey’s Just Begun by Ellen Brenneman

Don’t think of her as gone away her journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

And think of her as living in the hearts of those he touched… for nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much.
