May Liz Rest in Peace.
We were friends many many years ago in Ballentine Elementary School and shared memories over the past 10-15 years over the Facebook page of that school. The most memorable was our discussion about our 1st grade class picture. Several people discussed recognizing friends in the picture. She thought she was standing beside me in the picture.

Don and family, so sorry for you loss. You and Liz were two great neighbors and precious friends. Miss you at Holiday Island. You both had a way to keep a smile on our faces and in our hearts when you were around. Miss our afternoon talks in the back yard and our visits to each other's homes as well as front porch fun at Judy and Joe's. We are at a loss for words! We love you and Liz. She is greatly missed. God bless you and keep you. May the great memories live in your heart and hopefully fill some of the empty space until you meet again in glory.
Love , Del and Ellis
