The Zonta Club of Sault Ste. Marie Area was deeply saddened at the loss of long-time member, Elizabeth Mackinnon, on March 24, 2017. Elizabeth joined our club in March of 1982 where she served in various capacities including President and most recently was the lead for the Breast Cancer Comfort Pillows that were sewed and donated to the local Breast Cancer Support Group.

Elizabeth’s career was with the Children’s Aid Society and later as the Executive Director of Big Sisters in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Elizabeth believed in service to her community. Elizabeth volunteered with Meals on Wheels, served on the United Way Program Review Committee and served four terms on the Board at Women in Crisis. Elizabeth led a support group for the MS Society, was a driver for the Canadian Cancer Society, driving patients to Sudbury for their treatments. She sat on the Board of Credit Counselling for 15 years, volunteered with Blood Donor Clinics and was a blood donor herself. Elizabeth was also a Friend of the Library, volunteering much time in the book store.

Our club and our community have lost a truly valuable citizen, a dedicated volunteer and someone whose presence will be missed by all those whose lives she positively impacted through her strong community spirit. We will miss her mischievous sense of humour and strong sense of social justice. Without a doubt, Elizabeth Mackinnon has left a legacy of dedicated service for all of us to follow whether a Zonta member or fellow volunteers in other areas.
