Liz grew up in Gary, IN, and was a proud graduate of Lew Wallace High School. After high school she began her successful career as a credit analyst for US Steel in downtown Chicago. Following her marriage and the birth of the joys of her life, she spent time at home as a full-time mother, followed by a new and rewarding career as a Paraprofessional at District 171 in Lansing, IL. Liz was active in her daughters’ lives volunteering as a Girl Scout leader, coach, and many school activities. In Liz’s free time she had a unique talent for gardening and crocheting. She was a Motown enthusiast and especially enjoyed singing along with Smokey Robinson.
Nothing made her happier than coaching her daughters and watching them follow in her successful footsteps as an athlete. Liz enjoyed being surrounded by family, especially her five grandchildren. Her greatest joy was becoming a “Gigi” and giving her grandkids hugs. Liz loved singing and had a special song for each grandkid. She loved cuddling on the couch while reading and watching movies together. She never missed a birthday or big celebration and spoiled her grandkids whenever she got the chance. Liz was loved by many and will be truly missed. The family welcomes donations to the American Cancer Society as an expression of sympathy instead of flowers.
