Liz was a special lady, one that can never be forgotten. Liz and I were friends for over 70 years. Liz was my maid of honor, and we grew up as young ladies skating together and I always cherished her friendship.that friendship meant a lot to me and I always appreciated talking to her and her mind was so sharp she could remember a lot of the past things we had done and the people that were with us. My heart is very heavy knowing she is gone but we were all blessed to know her.My condolences to the family and I know you all realize how blessed and lucky you were to have her in your lives.

I am so sorry for your loss. I never had the opportunity to meet Nana, but the stories I have heard from Val are magnificent. She sounded like an extraordinary woman who taught her children and grandchildren well. Her imprint is imbedded in her family and her memories and love will love forever. Hugs and prayers,
Susan Dlouhy
