Liz had many friends; she never met a stranger. She loved her family, friends and every animal she ever saw. Liz was a very kind and generous woman. If someone needed help, she was the first one there. Liz loved music, everything from Elvis to Billie Holiday with a little Janis Joplin and, of course, Tom Jones. She loved to travel, go dancing, play the slot machines in Las Vegas, work in her garden, go fishing and was a very talented artist. Liz had many jobs in her life, but her favorite was owning her own security company at the Anaheim Stadium. She also worked at the Celebrity Lounge and at the Aztec Bowl. She attended Three Crosses Ministry and found her second family there. Liz experienced great joy worshiping the lord. Liz was often referred to as "The Energizer Bunny." She had a zest for life and was always ready for whatever came next. Friends and family were everything to her. Liz will be deeply missed by all who know her, especially her family. We know the she is resting in eternal paradise with our lord.
