March 30, 1933 – March 6, 2020 – UPDATE
Peacefully, surrounded by those she loved, in her 87th year, on Friday, March 6, 2020 at Amica Retirement Home. Liz was the beloved wife of Richard Carson Newman (died 23 June1995) and the dear mother of Michael (Kendra), Toni, Mark (Patty) and Cathy (Tom). The Newman family, out of concern for family and friends due to the COVID-19 virus, have decided to postpone our mother’s Celebration of Life that was scheduled for March 28th at St. Paul’s United Church in Dundas. There will indeed be a Celebration of Life in the weeks to come and we will inform you of the new date and time.

I had the good fortune to work for Liz at Mcmaster Volunteer Services. When she retired she encouraged me to upgrade my Education in Volunteer Management and was given this position. We kept in touch over the years and she was always involved in helping others and using her expertise in Board Management. Millie Johnson

Mike & Kendra. My sincere condolences on your lost. I saw it in the Spectator. I remember volunteering with Liz at a Hallwent skating Competition and other skating events. She was a great supporter of skating. May you always remember the great times with your Mom. May she rest in peace. Blessings.
