Obituary of Elizabeth Katharine Groszeibl

GROSZEIBL, ELIZABETH (nee Barth) - It is with profound sadness that the family of Elizabeth Groszeibl announces her passing on March 19th in her 87th year.  Beloved wife of Joseph for 67 years.  Dear mother of Elizabeth Tulumello (Michael), Frank (Lisa), David (Rosemarie), Robert (Tracey), Sheri Loeffen (Harold), Terry (Charlotte).  Cherished Oma of Patricia (Lee), Christina (Drew), Anthony (Jacky), Luke, Rachel (Walter), Andrew (Courtney), Jeremy (Jessica), Crystal (Barry), Cynthia (Erik), Victoria (Jordan), Amelia (Brendan), Jessica (Troy) and Melissa.  Proud Great-Oma of Lily, Ella, Conner, Alex, Emma, Emily, Adam, Allison, Ethan, Caleb, Ava, Sophie, Hailie, Bradley, Lucas, Wyatt, Max, Robbie and one more on the way.  Elizabeth is also survived by her sister-in-law Theresa Barth and several nieces and nephews.  She is predeceased by her parents, Julianna and Jakob Barth, infant siblings; Joseph and Katarina, brothers; Jack and Nick, sisters; Rozina, Julie and Theresa, brothers in-law Valentine and Julius.  Elizabeth was born in Yugoslavia and came to Canada at the age of fourteen with her family. She began working at the Port Colborne Shoe Factory and took English lessons at Port High where she met Joe.  Elizabeth and Joe married and began a successful farming business together which continues to operate today as Triple G Farms.  Elizabeth was a hard-working, strong and compassionate woman.  Her amazing cooking and baking skills were cherished and appreciated by family and also in the community throughout the years.  She often baked for families through her participation in the Catholic Women’s League.  Elizabeth and Joe enjoyed travelling together in their younger years.  They hosted many family gatherings, which was their favourite thing to do.  Together, through perseverance, strength and lots of laughter, they had built a life to be proud of.  Mom was the go-to person in our family for help and advice.  Her wisdom, kindness and gentle nature was valued by everyone who knew her.  Mom had a very special relationship with each and every person in our family.  She also believed strongly in family heritage and traditions which will be passed on for generations. There are so many memories of Mom that we will cherish forever.  She will be incredibly missed and forever in our hearts.
