MIEZITIS, Ligita Velta
1935 - 2020

It is with deepest sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Ligita Velta Miezitis at home with her family by her side on Wednesday November 18, 2020 at the age of 85. Beloved wife of Juris Miezitis and loving mother of Ivars (Line Richard) and Mara. Ligita cherished her grandchildren Kaela, Tyler and Sydney. Predeceased by her dear sisters Erika Reinfelds (Gunars) and Arija Krumins (Oskars). With a heart full of love Ligita held dear numerous nieces, nephews and extended family in Canada, The United States, Germany, and Latvia. Ligita was born in Latvia and emigrated during the 2nd World War through Germany and England before calling Canada her home where in addition to building a loving family she also built a wide network of friends. Ligita was also very active in the Ottawa Latvian church and social community. She always had a positive outlook on life, a sly wit, and most of all a loving nature. It is hard to imagine a world without her, we will continue her heritage because we will always hold her in our hearts. Due to the Covid-19 situation a private family funeral service will be held and a further celebration of life in 2021. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

Private Condolence

Sending condolences to Mara, Ivy and Juris. I am a friend of Mara's from Carleton University and got to know Mara's mom during my university days before I moved out of Ottawa. Mrs Miezitis was very nice to me and allowed Mara and me to host dinner parties at their family home. I recall sitting in the family kitchen sipping tea and eating cookies that had been warmed up in the microwave (I didn't own one then) and just having a great chat with Mrs Miezitis and enjoying her company. Ligi I have toasted to you and am making a donation to one of my favorite charity's, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara. Rest in peace. Love to the whole family.

Our sincere condolences to George and family. Ligi always had a smile for her neighbours and time for a cheerful chat as she worked on her beautiful garden. Best wishes, the Vierula family
