Sorry to hear about Liz, your mother. Will always remember the bet we made, that if either of us won the lottery - we would go to Hawaii. Always enjoyed her upbeat personality and many laughs together! She will be missed.

Feeling a loss,
Carol (McAulay) Barlage

I can remember a few good times with Liz and Carol while growing up in Harrison..My Grandma was Liz mom’s sister(V.(Price)Querback). also remember Liz Dad at my dad’s gas station on the north end of Harrison.
Liz always happy and joking around and making whoever she was around laugh and as a happy girl..
I know she will be missed by those she was close to..
Rest In Peace Liz, you were a good person.
