Elks, Endicott. Orphaned at an early age and raised separately from her many siblings, Elizabeth learned to cherish relationships. She overlooked idiosyncrasies and embraced all with a loving heart. Humility was part of her charm; she had no idea of the impact she had on people or how special she made them feel. A fun loving, resolute and realistic soul; no happening was too small to celebrate; no obstacle too big to overcome. “Amazing” is the adjective used by family and friends to describe Elizabeth. She leaves us enriched by her presence and grateful for the life lessons and memories she gave us.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Tuesday 1 pm at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church 701 West Main Street, Endicott. Entombment will be in Calvary Cemetery Johnson City. The family will receive friends at the church Tuesday from 11:30 am until Mass time at 1 pm.
