Elizabeth Anne Glover (nee Cracknell)

Elizabeth Anne passed away with Debra, Ken and Kia by her side on May 15th, 2015.

Elizabeth was born December 13, 1926 in Fort William (Thunder Bay), Ontario to Fredrick and Eva Cracknell. Elizabeth went to Business College so she could help support her mother after her father was killed in a railway accident. She began her career at an early age; her main employer being Revenue Canada in Thunder Bay, Ontario. She married Percy Glover, Jr on August 22, 1951. Percy gave Elizabeth a teacup Papillion puppy (Trixie) as an engagement gift. Elizabeth and Percy shared a love for all animals and would often take long drives in the countryside to see farm animals and wildlife. In 1956, Elizabeth gave birth to their only daughter Debra Lee. Throughout Elizabeth’s married life, her mother resided within our family home until her death in 1967. Elizabeth was predeceased by her mother, Eva, father Fredrick, husband Percy Jr. (1997), elder sisters Eva Pinner, Ellen Pinner and Josephine Powell and her brothers, Stanley, Gordon and Walter (in WWll). Remembering loved ones was very important to Elizabeth. In 2001, she moved from Thunder Bay to Burns Lake to be closer to her daughter Debra and son-in-law Ken. Together they were able to enjoy travelling to many BC locations and back to Hawaii. After dementia made travel difficult, she still enjoyed visiting Debra and Ken’s rural property, loved to give pats to her “grand critters” (she was known as Grandmeow) and enjoyed drives around the beautiful Lakes District and Smithers areas.

Elizabeth will be missed and remembered always by her daughter Debra, son-in-law Ken (Breakwell) and by her nieces, nephews and their families in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Elizabeth was extremely supportive of animal advocacy programs and was instrumental in the creation of the Mother Millie fund (yard sale) for local stray animals. It was mom’s wish that any memorial donations be made to the Mother Millie fund (Burns Lake Vet Clinic), the Lakes Animal Friendship Society of Southbank or the ‘Biscuit’ fund for the BCSPCA.

God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
