Joe and Mary Ann,
Your mom was a great lady, she had a way of making me laugh without really even trying. You and all your family members are in my prayers at this difficult time. I hope you find comfort in knowing your mom is at peace.

Lefkay Family: So sorry for the loss of your mom, Liz. My mom and dad were such good friends with your parents and my dad, especially, talked about them and the “old days” all of the time. Peace be with you all during this sad time.

Liz was a very dear friend of mine for many, many years. Played Poker & Euchre games with Liz & Walter & was a CRS club with her for over 40 yrs. She will be sadly missed. I’m sure she’ll be reunited with Walter in a happier place. I know her children & grandchildren were very dedicated – my thoughts & prayers are with you .
