BENNETT, Elizabeth Elfreda
The Cape Breton Post, July 5, 2005

The family of Elizabeth Bennett sadly regret to announce her passing on Monday morning, July 4, 2005, at the MacGillivray Guest Home in Sydney, at the age of 83. Elizabeth was born in Port aux Basques, Nfld., on Sept. 26, 1921, daughter of Arthur and Bertha Davis. She was a loving mother to daughter, Tanya (John), Etobicoke; sons, Robert (Debbie MacInnis), Sydney, Bruce (Libby Martin), Ottawa. She is survived by sisters, Helena (Ralph Lundrum), Pennsylvania, Joan, Deer Lake, Nfld., Barbara, Fredericton; brothers, Irwin (Lilly), Clarenville, David (Margaret), Port aux Basques,Nfld.; grandchildren, Owen, Gary, Tiffany and Johnathan and numerous nieces and nephews. Elizabeth was predeceased by her parents, her devoted husband and friend of 59 years, Frederick A. Bennett and her brothers, Harold, Edgar and Aubrey.

She was a creative gourmet cook, a lovely knitter and she won prizes with her weaving skills. She made many friends at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design in the early years of the school when she took weaving courses. In her younger years she loved a good game of bridge and she always enjoyed a good joke. In her youth, she loved to fish salmon in Newfoundland and she enjoyed skiing in Cape Breton.

The family wish to thank the wonderful staff of the MacGillivray Guest Home for their caring and competent attention to our mother's comfort and well being. There will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Wayne Weatherbee, Sydney Memorial Chapel. There will be a burial service at Hardwood Hill Cemetery at a later date. Donations can be made to the MacGillivray Guest Home or a charity of choice. Condolences may be sent to the family at
