Elizabeth is survived by her siblings, Dick, Mary, Don and Syl. She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother George. A Mass of Christian Burial will held at ST. PETER’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 7121 County Trunk K, Ashton at 11 AM on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, with Father Tait Schroeder presiding. Burial will follow the service. Visitation will be held at the church on Tuesday from 10 AM until the time of the Mass.
