Elizabeth passed away at St. Paul’s hospital on Friday, August 19th at the age of 85. She was predeceased by her mother and father, Elizabeth and Alexander McGarvie and husband James ‘Jim’ Herron. Mom, Gran and Great Gran is survived by son David (Gladys), Grandson Andrew (Kim) with Great Grandson Alexander Seamus and newly arrived Great-Grand daughter Gabrielle Elizabeth also Granddaughter Amanda (Nathan) with Great-Grandsons Braylon and newly arrived Ashton, all of Saskatoon. Mom’s sister Sandra Ralph (with nieces Alisson and Katie) and brother Stuart McGarvie of Girvan, Scotland and the rest of the Herron Clan throughout Scotland with Brothers and Sister in law and many nieces and nephews are saddened to hear this news. Many friends, both two legged and four, mourn her loss. Her ‘doggy’ friends at SASA and across the country knew her as a ‘Champion’. Mom also leaves behind her great life-long chum Mina MaCrea and daughter Michelle of Neilston, Scotland. She and Mina grew up together as wee lasses in Scotland continued to stay in close touch till the end. My family would like to extend our deep appreciation to the group of medical caregivers at St. Paul’s Hospital’s 5th floor, Flex Ward 2 and Palliative care for the wonderful care they provided to mom. They are amazing, caring and compassionate professionals. The Memorial Service will be held at The Royal Canadian Legion at 3 p.m. on Sunday August 28th, located at 606 Spadina Crescent W, Saskatoon, SK. All Shelties warmly welcomed. In lieu of flowers, please know that we will be establishing Tavendale’s Sheltie Rescue Foundation in Mom’s name.
