I remember Liz well from our days at Hudson's Bay High school. I pray blessings and comfort upon her family.

Lovely photo of Liz! I enjoyed working with her for many years in the semi-annual food drives at BPA. She was always good-natured, cooperative, and wanted to help others. Her passing is too soon. My sympathy to her children and grands and her siblings.

I went to HS with Liz. Later when we worked together at BPA, we talked about school and how we ended up at the same work location.
Such a short retirement, bless her and her family during this time.

It brings me comfort to know before you passed, that you knew I appreciated you, and loved you.. That you got to spend time with my kids. That our mother, daughter relationship was getting better. That helps me in your death mom. I'm still shocked. I love you, I miss you.

Such sad news. I first met Liz in 1974 and worked along side her for many years at BPA. We talked about the garden and weather every time we had a discussion. She helped me over and over again at BPA where we both worked. So sorry she didn't get to enjoy her retirement longer. She will be tending the flowers and gardens in Heaven now.

Liz was one my oldest and dearest friends and we went through so much in our lives together, she was there when I had my son, and many surgery's, my divorce, my folks passing, I was there for both of her parents passing years ago, we did yard sales together and most recently we talked about what we were going to do since she was retired. Liz and I met while going to high school and then again years later in a church group that we both belonged to. Liz was like another sister in my family we had a lot in common. She liked to garden and cook and so did I. She taught me so much about the names of plants that grew up at her folk's cabin and that was where she was the happiest. I will miss my friend but I know she is in a place of peace and happiness.

Liz a Beth as I liked to call her was one of the first people I met at BPA. We became fast friends like sisters in our later years of working together. My boys and their friends always loved talking to Liz. At each family function if she wasn't there they wanted to know why. We had lots of adventures traveling several times at BPA and she was a "gift" to me as my cataloger at BPA. She trained countless employees on the right way to establish a catalog I'd and was very proud to be a BPA employee as she was a third generation BPA employee.
