Liz enjoyed cooking, traveling, reading, and most of all time spent at Virginia Beach and Wrightsville Beach. She played the flute in the Jefferson High School band and continued playing for her own pleasure. Her favorite color all her life was purple.

She was a loving daughter, sister and friend, and will be greatly missed. The family wishes to express their gratitude to Liz’s friends, Susan Booker, Jennifer Vitale, Claire Deal, Shaunna Hunter and Kim Epting, who took such loving care of her.
