Elizabeth Whamond 19492020

Elizabeth Whamond
1949-2020
Elizabeth Whamond (nee Wandless) passed away peacefully
Tuesday evening, June 9, 2020. At the age of 70, she spent her final
days at Hospice House in Fredericton, following a number of years
living with numerous health complications. She was born in Fredericton
on Christmas Day, 1949 to the late Ruby (Alexander) and Francis
Wandless. Her sibling, George, was a caring and supportive brother
until his passing a few years ago.
Liz was with family in her final moments, and is survived by
her devoted partner in life of 45 years, Ken. Her spirit endures in
her three sons, Peter (Connie), Scott (Joe), and Alex (Jumana). Also,
she leaves behind her beloved granddaughter Ruby, her niece Teri
Wandless, Marley (Connie’s daughter), and several cousins.
She will be remembered fondly by her sisters-in-law Wendy Anthieren
(Lenny), Diana Buist (Neil), and Joey Wandless, as well as her
brother-in-law Randy Whamond (Marj).
Her family, friends, and colleagues remember her welcoming
and generous nature. Liz could strike up a conversation with anyone
and develop an instant and genuine bond. Being a social and truly nice
person, she was prompt to joyful laughter and a bright
smile.
Throughout her life, Liz took on challenges with enthusiasm
and never let anything stand in her way. Her motivation was to make a
difference in other peoples’ lives. She spent 30+ years
supporting forestry students and faculty at UNB, always there to lend
a hand and encourage.
After beating breast cancer in 1993, she worked with other
survivors and allies to build local and national networks and bring
patient voices to change health care for the better. She spent
countless hours contributing to Canada’s cancer control
strategy and worked with the international community to establish
high-quality information for making health decisions. At every step,
Liz stood up for women needing and deserving the best treatment and
care.
Passion drove Liz. She loved travel – her passport
filled with stamps from across the Americas, Europe, Australia, the
Middle East, Africa, and Asia. She took on adventures like white-water
rafting and parasailing. In later years, the Miata she bought on eBay
explored the roads of the Maritimes and northeastern states. Her
garden, lovingly planted by Ken, overflows with hostas, daylilies and
rose bushes. Liz adored animals and she was most often the family
member plotting for the arrival of a new pet. She was inseparable from
her cherished puppy Bella until the end. She lived for the happiness
of her sons and granddaughter, and all others that welcomed her into
their circle.
In everything, Liz was brave, kind, and positive. She had
such a big heart and joyous sense of humour. We will miss
her.
The family expresses its sincere thanks Dr. Meaghan
O’Brien and to the staff of 4 West and 3 East at the DECH
and at the Hospice House for the loving and compassionate care she
received.
When circumstances permit, a gathering will take place to
celebrate our beautiful memories of a life well lived. In lieu of
flowers, donations to the Hospice House in Fredericton would be
greatly appreciated.

  1. Hello Ken,
    Those of us in Forestry UNB with Liz will remember her well, with a smile; it was a pleasure to be with her.

  2. It was with great sadness that my wife Margaret and I belatedly discovered Liz had passed away. We’ve lived abroad for the last several years but when we talk about Fredericton she always has a place in our fondest memories of happy times. She was the bedrock of the Office of the Dean of Forestry and Environmental Management on which several deans were glad to rest. RIP Liz.
