Denice, It is with my deepest sympathies to hear of your moms passing. We certainly shared so many memories at the center and always at her wonderful Christmas parties. Pete always had the house decked to the max. Liz took care in taking those decorations to Pete when he was in assisted living. She always took the extra mile in all of her dealings. I loved her dearly. She certainly loved you and she told me all about her time spent with you and your husband. The wonderful military party and all of the security. You were a wonderful daughter. She always wanted Paul and I to come to see you,so we could get together. She was such a classy lady and full of advice and wisdom. I loved her. Maybe you can keep in touch through facebook.

Our deepest sympathies to all of Liz’s family. I have so many great memories growing up with Liz, Janet, Pudge, Debbie, Johnny & especially Denise! . Denise will always be my Best Friend Forever! I remember when they moved in across the street from us, as I was 3 years old & Denise was 5 years old. We became inseparable friends! That friendship still continues to this day. Even though we may not see each other on a daily basis, we know that we will always be there for one another. May your many special memories of your mom ease your pain in this sad time. Prayers for all the family! 🙏🙏🙏🙏

Much Love,

Susanne, Cliff & Courtney Baker &

Dear family,
Liz loved Angels and now she can share her love as one of them. We had some great, sad, and remarkable times together, but she never lost love for her family. Yes, she was strong minded and always wanted to look her best even if she was not feeling well. Liz made an impact on everyone she met. I have you all in my heart and prayers and I know you will never forget what a wonderful life Liz had, and know that family is everything.
Missing my friend but have memories forever

Elizabeth was a friend for many many years. We shared good times and bad times, we talked we laughed we cried together. It has been a lasting regret that I was unable to visit her in the last couple of years due to my health. I will miss you Liz.

Having known dear Liz for 61 years, I have a lifetime of memories to cherish. She was like a second mother to me; we talked about EVERYTHING! We watched out for each other, fed each other and ranted about how crazy the world seemed to be, at times. We laughed a lot, we cried together, sometimes. We shared our lives. And so, some final words for you, Liz: Thank you, dear friend, for your love and light. While I will miss you, wish we could hug and say, “I love you” one more time, know that you are always in my heart. There is peace in knowing that you are back with God. I love you, Liz. My heartfelt sympathies go to you, Janet, Debbie, Pudge, Denise and family.
