Liz was beautiful, kind, vibrant, caring, witty and always wore the most beautiful smile. She was a good listener, and always provided thoughtful advice. She loved to spend time with her family by simply having meals or just relaxing together on the weekends or taking vacations together. All this was always captured on camera; Liz never missed an opportunity to take a picture! Her love for pictures has left forever lasting memories which we will treasure. In her spare time, Liz enjoyed reading, writing, painting, listening to music (she was the family disc jockey!) baking and watching tv shows from the 70s & 80s. Go well our Lizzie, you will forever be in our hearts.❤️
