Paulowicz, Elizabeth Mary




It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and sister, Elizabeth Mary Paulowicz (née: Neuman), aged 74 years of Moose Jaw, SK on Monday, May 10th, 2021. Liz was born in Utrecht, Holland on June 3rd, 1946 to her parents Petronella (Bos) and George Neuman. Liz journeyed with her war bride mother Petronella aboard the Queen Mary to start their life in Canada with her father George, a Canadian WW2 soldier, at the tender age of 3 months old. The family resided in Regina, SK. Liz married her high school sweetheart, Robert Paulowicz, on July 8th, 1967 after completing her nursing training at the Regina General Hospital in Regina. Liz, or “Elly” as she was frequently referred to by her family, was deeply committed to her husband and children. She enjoyed her hand at many crafts over the years and was extremely artistic. She found a love of making stained glass projects, which she enjoyed until she was not able to continue due to her illness. After her children were older, Liz returned to her career in nursing. She worked for many years at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital until she retired in 2006. Bob and Liz enjoyed many years of taking many trips to Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Hawaii, various Caribbean destinations, South America and Europe. Liz especially loved to be involved in her grandchildren’s lives, spending many evenings and weekends at either a hockey rink, baseball, football or soccer field, or watching dance recitals. She was predeceased by her parents, George and Petronella Neuman.  Liz is survived and will be dearly missed by her husband of almost 54 years, Robert Paulowicz and their 2 children, Lisa (Robbie) Parker and Jeff (Tracy) Paulowicz; grandchildren: Brady Parker (Sarah Husak), Jadyn Paulowicz and Joshua Paulowicz; sister, Georgina (Alan) Neumiller; and nephew, Luke Neumiller.  A special thank you to all the staff at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital, Dr. David Braun, Dr. Kate Pilon, the Saskatchewan Transplant Team, Dr. Fenton and Dr. Tam and the Edmonton Royal University Hospital, Dr. Lien and his fantastic Transplant Department. Due to the restrictions regarding the current health situation, a Private Family Service will be held at a later date.
