(nee Rutherford)
September 7, 1927-May22, 2020

Elizabeth died peacefully at home with her dearly loved daughter Joanne Elizabeth Peacock at her side. Predeceased by her beloved husband, Edwin Pavey Peacock. Much loved sister of Jean Taplin, twin Billie Kemp, Marianne Chapelle, and Jack Rutherford. Admired Aunt of many nieces and nephews. Elizabeth is predeceased by her parents, Bruce and Irene Rutherford, and siblings Sandy Rutherford and Leone (Onie) Miles.

Elizabeth began her nursing career at Belleville Hospital and continued her studies at the University of Toronto and Brown University, Rhode Island, specializing in Nursing Education and Psychiatric Nursing. She taught nursing at Kingston and Toronto Psychiatric Hospitals and was Director of Nursing Education at Hamilton Psychiatric Hospital.

Elizabeth was a tireless volunteer with many organizations: Oshawa YWCA, Unicef Ontario (Vice Chair and Chair), Durham Region Therapeutic Riding Association, Community Living, and a long-time board member of Sunrise Senior’s Place. Of her many awards, she was overjoyed to receive the YWCA Women of Distinction, and the national Agnes Amelia Blizard Award for Volunteering.

As per Elizabeth’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of Life will be held at a later date. The family would like to express their appreciation for the excellent care Elizabeth received from the Personal Support Workers at HomeInstead, the Palliative Care Unit of the Central East LHIN, especially Cassandra Kahrs of VHA, and the Bayshore Healthcare nurses. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or charity of choice. Condolences and donations can be directed through the Morris Funeral Chapel, 4 Division St. Bowmanville, ON L1C2Z1

Joanne, I was a Speech-Language Pathologist at Simcoe Hall Crippled Children's Centre from 1967 until the early 70's and remember you and your mother with much fondness. In the early days, you and your mother would graciously host a start of the summer luncheon for the therapy staff at your home. We were a small group at that time and very close. I remember you and your parents with special fondness. Please accept my condolences.

On behalf of the Staff and Board of the YWCA Durham, we extend our deepest condolences to Joanne and her family. Liz was a beautiful spirit! She was a woman of strength, integrity and commitment, and was an important part of YWCA Durham’s history. Liz helped shape the path of the YWCA Durham and the movement as a whole. We are eternally grateful for the impact that Liz has had on our organization and our community. We will continue to honour the legacy and passion of Liz through our annual Liz Peacock Award, which was established in 2008. Our hearts are heavy but our spirits are strong as we reflect and remember our dear friend and “Woman of Distinction”.
Wendy and Susanne

Dear Joanne:

I am so sorry for your loss of such an amazing Mother. Her whole life was one of giving. I enjoyed my contact with her on the Parkview Senior Citizens Board. She was always concerned for the safety and enjoyment of the Parkview residents. She touched many lives.
