It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Elizabeth Yvonne Ferguson, age 68, of Springhill, NS. Elizabeth passed away at the High Crest Nursing Home on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 with family by her side.

Born in Sydney, NS, she was the daughter of the late John and Beatrice (Evans) D’Orsay.

A loving wife and mother, Elizabeth was the community health nurse in Springhill for many years. She was recognized numerous times by the community for her impact within postnatal care. Many years later babies she helped take care of are now having babies of their own. In her younger years she enjoyed dancing and singing with the singing group "Just Friends" as well as "The Carmenettes". A true Cape Bretoner, she always kept in touch with her family from home ensuring to visit often. She was an incredible mother who always prioritized her children. You could find Elizabeth completing the daily crossword, taking part in church activities or going for walks. She enjoyed being active continuing to do yoga and swimming for many years. She was an avid African violet gardener and tea drinker.

Elizabeth will be deeply missed by her husband Kenneth, Springhill; sons Alan (Kaylah Villeneuve), Sudbury, ON, David, Dartmouth, Edward, Moose Jaw, SK; grandson Arlo; siblings Jack (Linda) D’Orsay, Sydney, Cathy (Mike) Devine, Debert, Lorne (Louise) D’Orsay, Boularderie Island, Cape Breton.
