Elizabeth McMillan Curell (nee Macdonald), aged 95, passed away peacefully on October 27, 2023. Affectionately known as Liz or Betty, she left this world with the warm glow of a full moon shining through her window. Liz is survived by her children, David, Jane (Dave), Bob (Bettina), and Brian, as well as her younger brother Robert, sister-in-law’s Marge and Zorea, extended family, and her adoring grandchildren, Jessica, Calvin, and Kuni.

Liz was the eldest amongst five siblings, Ian, Bev, Glen, and Robert, and their loving sister. Throughout her life, she displayed resilience and determination. At the remarkable age of 52, Liz utilized her keen sense of fashion, tenacity, and passion to open a successful swimsuit and cruise wear boutique in Kelowna. Seeking closer proximity to her loved ones, in 1987 she relocated her business to downtown Vancouver, where it quickly became the premier retailer of swimwear in Western Canada. After retiring at the incredible age of 90, Liz returned to her beloved Kelowna.

Liz led a fulfilling life, embodying love for her family, active community involvement, a thriving career, exceptional hosting skills, and a spirit of adventure in her travels. Fondly remembered as “The Amazing Liz,” she will reunite with numerous family members and friends in her new journey. A private family service will be held in her honor, and a gathering to celebrate Liz’s life will take place on Friday, November 17, 2023, between 1:00-3:00 PM at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club. In lieu of flowers, those who wish to honor Liz’s memory may make a donation to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation.
