We have lost a wonderful and loving Mother, Nana, and friend.

Elizabeth Anne Pryde (Kohut), 73, of Fort Frances, Ont., passed away Wednesday, April 11, 2012.

Mom was born March 28, 1939 in Thunder Bay, Ont. to Wanda Tomas (Kohut) and Tony Kohut. She worked for the Ministry of Natural Resourcs from 1972-1996.

In her retirement years, she belonged to several groups, including the Red Hatters, Meals on Wheels, hospital auxiliary, and the Sew and Sew Quilters.

Mom was a devoted, loving, and generous Mother and Nana. Her grandchildren were a special delight for her and they have been left with many wonderful memories of times spent together.

She never forgot a birthday or an anniversary. Every card given to her was so special that she kept them all.

Her special loves were quilting and gardening. A good friend said that God will be getting a new quilt.

Mom was predeceased by her father, mother, and brother, Bill Kohut (Elsie).

Mom will be lovingly remembered by her children, Jodi Caul (Keith), Scott Pryde (Cindy), and Heather Pryde (Chad); their father, Don Pryde; grandchildren, Kayla (Rey), Mackenzie, Riley, Jamie, Justin, David, and Lochlan; and great-grandson, Rustin.

Also surviving are her aunties, Ethel Wiwcharyk and Amelia Lewandowski; sister-in-law, Joan Steven; special friend, Doug McLeod; and many special nieces, nephews, and friends.

In lieu of flowers, in memoriam donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society and Tamarack House.

A celebration of Mom’s life was held Monday, April 16, 2012 at 10 a.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion in Fort Frances.
