MCCORD, Elizabeth passed away on Friday, July 26, 2019. Elizabeth was born in St. Thomas, Ontario June 3, 1932 Joan Elizabeth May Eve-land to her loving parents Frank and Margaret Eveland known to all as “Dutch and Daisy”. Predeceased by her favourite sister Shirley Monteith and her husband Bill. Survived by her favourite brother “Bud” Frank Eveland and his wife Irene Baskey.

Survived by many nieces and nephews. Liz loved to travel and like her mother Daisy wanted to be in the car if it was leaving – didn’t matter where it was going. Liz spent most of her life in Port Burwell, however moved to California with her family in the 1960’s to be near her beloved sister Shirley and her family. Those were special years spending time with their young families and her special friends Vic and Virgina Ray. While there she developed a love for Disneyland in Anaheim, California and she enjoyed taking visitors from home to the most wonderful place on earth! In the early 1970’s family responsibilities brought her family back to Port Burwell. Always on the go, there were regular road trips back to California and many visits from family and friends. She loved entertaining family and friends, cooking wonderful meals. She also had a great passion for decorating her home for all seasons and loved her little log cabin outside of Straffordville. In her later years Liz began visiting Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida almost every winter, staying in their campground and enjoying all that the parks have to offer. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren grow and loved seeing all of her little great grandchildren. She may have lost many of her memories over recent years, but was sweet to all who surrounded her until the end. Special thanks to our wonderful Uncle Bud for holding mum’s hand during every visit and to our special Aunt Irene for her quiet and kind words. The staff and volunteers at Sakura House provided exceptional care to our whole family and for that we are forever thankful. Cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held.
