January 3rd, 1928 – January 6th, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunt, Elizabeth (Isabel) DuSomme on Thursday, January 6th, 2022. Elizabeth was born on January 3rd, 1928 in Kincaid, SK. She was predeceased by her parents, Nickolas and Doris Gruell; sisters, Natalie and Rose; brother, John; and son-in-law, John.

Elizabeth enjoyed playing crib, military whist, going to the Cultural Centre, bingo, writing letters to the editor since 1972, council meetings, and always enjoyed giving her opinion. Elizabeth pushed for the Yara Centre, Mosaic Place, and the new Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital with a passion. She was on the board for the Murals of Moose Jaw and was an advocate for tourism, and also loved going to political events. Elizabeth made donations to a variety of charities including The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Children’s Wish Foundation, Operation Smile, Medecins Sans Frontieres, Moose Jaw Health Foundation, as well as political parties.

Elizabeth leaves to mourn her loss, her children: Bernie of Moose Jaw, SK, Betsy of Fort Saskatchewan, AB, Joanne (Ken) of Penticton, BC, and Gary of Nanaimo, BC; sisters, Jean and Elaine (Stan); brothers: George (Betty), Danny (Jackie) and Earl (Bonnie); many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her extended family; as well as many friends that she made over the years.  

Our thanks go out to the doctors and nurses who took such great care of Elizabeth and made her final days peaceful.

Due to the Covid-19 health situation, a Private Family Graveside Service will be held at Rosedale Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in Elizabeth’s name may be made to a charity of one’s choice. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Todd Sjoberg, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
