  1. Auntie – we will miss you dearly but know you are enjoying heaven with Bill, Billy, Coach and Tim.
    Lots of hugs and kisses

  2. I only met her once, but she made a lasting impression on me. She was fun to talk with and never was at a loss for words. We will all miss her.
    What a nice long life she had.

  3. Liz lived life with courage, dignity and grace. She was always a pleasure to be around and was a wonderful neighbor and friend. What a role model for all of us as we age. I will miss her greatly. My condolences to her daughters and extended family for their loss. – Pat Marquis

  4. Liz was an inspiration and I told her a few times that I want to be like her “when I grow up”! I always enjoyed hearing her stories and will miss her very much.
    What a great neighbor and friend Liz was. ~ Sylvia
