SERA, Elizabeth

ELIZABETH SERA 1926 – 2024 Mrs. Elizabeth Sera of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Mr. Alex Sera passed away at Legacy Lodge on Thursday, January 4, 2024, at the age of 97 years.
Elizabeth was born in Hungary on March 18, 1926. In the 1930’s, she and her family emigrated to Canada and settled in the Magrath area of Southern Alberta. She married the love of her life on May 24, 1945. She and her loving husband Alex purchased a farm together in Coaldale where they raised six children. The farm produced award winning purebred Angus cattle, sugar beets, and grain. In 1972, they sold the family farm and moved to Lethbridge. With their retirement they enjoyed many cold Alberta winters motor-homing in Arizona. Elizabeth’s greatest pride was in her family and enjoying her children and grandchildren. She felt very fortunate to have been blessed with a fulfilling life and 65 years of marriage with her husband Alex. Her life was defined by always selflessly being there for others.
Elizabeth is survived by her daughter Carolyn Handsaeme, and sons Ron (Darlene), Allen (Dorothy), Bob (Evelyn), Richard (Carrie), son-in-law Albert Medve, numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.
