Peacefully, at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, March 15, 2020,
of Elizabeth Hope Boyd, aged 77, of Charlottetown. Elizabeth
leaves to mourn her husband of 45 years, Lawrence
Boyd. Predeceased by her mother, Hope Macalister (nee Chaplin), and
father, Douglas Macalister. Also predeceased by her only sibling,
Beverley Boswell (Dr. David Boswell, also deceased).
Elizabeth was born in Montreal, and later made Prince Edward
Island her home, where she met her husband Lawrence. She worked as an
architectural draftsperson for many years, later becoming a
craftsperson at Island Pottery, and was a talented artist throughout
her life. She had a great love of all creatures great and small.
Elizabeth will be remembered with fondness for her humble, kind, and
gentle disposition by her nephew Justice Keith Boswell (Paule
Paiement) of Ottawa and Victoria by the Sea, nieces Julea Boswell
(Leonard St. Aubin) of Ottawa and Frenchfort, Anne Petley (Wayne),
Murray River, and Jane Boswell Purdy (Dan) of Ottawa, her grand nieces
and nephews, and by her extended family.
Also left to mourn are her special long-time friends Dr. Ben
Spears, and Annie Spears. Special thanks to Dr. Spears, Susan Lea
Manning, the doctors, nurses and staff at the Queen Elizabeth
Hospital, as well as other at home care-givers for their support and
kindness during Elizabeth’s illness, and to Dr. Eva Powell
for making a difference in Elizabeth’s life. At
Elizabeth’s request, a private memorial will be held at a
later date. Interment to follow at Mount Royal Cemetery, Montreal.
