Elizabeth was born in Langham on February 23, 1919. On October 16, 1947 she married Rufus Bartsch. Together they ran a dairy and mixed farming operation near Dalmeny. Mom loved music; she had a lovely alto voice. She planted many trees, flowers and gardens and had a gentle heart towards animals. The farm was her pride and joy. She was deeply faithful to God and her church community. Elizabeth spent her final years at Spruce Manor Special Care Home in Dalmeny where she was lovingly cared for by many wonderful gifted staff. The family will be forever grateful to them for their dedicated service. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at the Dalmeny Community Church.
