Elizabeth Kay Remick passed away peacefully at 11:33 A.M. on Monday, July 28, at home with family by her side. Our family was blessed with Libby’s presence for 26 years. She battled ovarian cancer for 18 months with courage and an indomitable spirit.
A celebration of Libby’s life will be held on August 17th at 2:00 P.M. E.D.T. at the Highlands at Newberry Estates, in Dallas, Pennsylvania. We invite everyone who shared her life to gather, remember, and honor Libby … a precious wife, daughter, sister, cousin, niece, and friend. For those inspired, there will be an opportunity to share memories and experiences of being touched by such a wonderful person.
To honor Libby’s fight against ovarian cancer, a charitable organization will be established to expand upon the critical mission of the Libby’s H*O*P*E* weblog, which is to increase ovarian cancer awareness and provide educational support to ovarian cancer survivors and their families. In life, Libby always showed care and concern for those around her, but her spiritual legacy will shepherd the future charitable organization to uplift and empower countless ovarian cancer survivors on a wide-reaching global scale.
In lieu of flowers and cards, Libby’s family suggests that a small donation be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). The OCRF is the largest private funding agency in support of ovarian cancer research. To date, OCRF has awarded $23 million in grants for the formulation of early diagnostic treatment programs and research towards the ultimate conquest of ovarian cancer.
