Alicia Luzardo

December 7, 1946 - October 10, 2015


Lovely Alicia Luzardo, mother, sister, friend and grandmother, passed away peacefully and surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, October 10th. She was born in Toronto and raised in Southern California, the daughter of Robina Watson from Kirkintilloch, Scotland and Alfonso Luzardo from Bogota, Columbia. She was diagnosed with stage IV cancer in February, a hand she graciously accepted for a long, slow dance. She was kind, compassionate, full of understanding and forgiveness; every choice she made was thoughtful, concise and with purpose. Thank you Alicia, for sharing this experience with us. You helped us to carve through that which is nonessential and recognize our own strengths. There was laughter and pain and love and loss and suffering, all the elements of a life well lived — truly lived.

The bustle in a House
The Morning after Death
Is solemnest of industries
Enacted upon Earth—

The sweeping up the Heart
And putting Love away
We shall not want to use again
Until Eternity.

Emily Dickinson

From: Livina Hiacinth
Relation: A friend

My heartfelt condolences to Alicia’s family. Alicia has been a friend for many years, beginning when my husband & I worked with her doing the bookkeeping for Bear Claws. I loved her kindness, thoughtfulness and open hearted-ness in our relationship. She was capable of so much compassion and understanding. I will miss her unique quality and place in my life.

From: Gerry Maitland
Relation: She was my aunt

On behalf of the Maitland family, I would like you all to know how much your mom touched all of our lives. Alicia was the kindest, most caring person that we’ve ever known. We will miss her greatly.
She always had a positive attitude, even while facing the terrible illness that took her from all of you and us far too soon. On a personal note, I’ll always cherish the wonderful memories of the times Alicia and I spent together when we all lived in Los Angeles. She was lots of fun to hang out with. I miss her very much.
