Elizabeth was my aunt, and my godmother. A kind, generous, and loving person, she welcomed people of all kinds into her life over the years. She never failed to remember my birthday, or send a greeting at the holidays. It was so nice to see her so happy over the past many years: she met and married Uncle George, and delighted in being grandmother to the children of my cousin Fred and his wife Karen. My sincere condolences to Uncle George; Fred and Karen and their children; my mother Catherine; my Uncle Joseph and his wife Martha, and all the family and friends. May Aunt Elizabeth rest in the eternal peace she firmly believed in.
