    • WIEGAND, Elizabeth (nee Drew-Brook)

      It is with much sadness that Ann Drew-Brook (Toronto) and Hugh Drew-Brook (Elora) announce the death on Saturday evening, February 11, 2017, of their very dear sister, Elizabeth Wiegand, who died of a heart attack, after a brief stay in the Cambridge Memorial Hospital, at the age of 93. The wife of her beloved, deceased husband, Dr. Jack Wiegand, Elizabeth greatly loved and will be mourned by Jack's grandchildren, Christopher Wiegand, his wife Annette and his sisters, Meagan, Jennifer, Kathy and Karen, John and Jim Wiegand, Jack's two sons and by Luanne and Brian Hancey. She was also much loved and will be missed by Hugh's children, Deborah Drew-Brook-Cormack (Allan), David Drew-Brook (Kathryn) and Carrol Rotteman and her son, Andrew. Although born in Toronto, Elizabeth and her sister moved with their parents, to a dairy farm north of Guelph, where some time later, their brother, Hugh, would be born. It was from these early years on the farm that Elizabeth developed her great love of animals and would learn to ride and jump horses, an interest which lasted a lifetime. After graduation from the Guelph Collegiate, it being Wartime, Elizabeth would later join the WRCNS where, as a Visual Signaler, she would help guide ships into their harbours in Halifax and Prince Rupert. Later, in the Spring of 1954, she joined Canada's Foreign Service and would serve in Venezuela, Norway, Britain, Switzerland and Israel. On marriage to Jack in 1980, she joined him in Cambridge, where she made many friends and was able to indulge in her love (and talent) in art, gardening, golf and bridge. The family would like to thank her many friends who called or visited Elizabeth in Hospital and would particularly like to thank two of her oldest friends: Mrs. Mary Clarke and Mrs. Anne Fluit who did so much for her during her hospital stay and were such a source of comfort to us. A Memorial Service will be held for Elizabeth on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from Trinity Anglican Church, 12 Blair Road, Cambridge, at 11 a.m. Online condolences at www.couttsfuneralhome.com <https://www.couttsfuneralhome.com>
