Urbas, Munoz, Carpenter and Bachna Families ~ I am sorry for your loss. Liz was sweet and kind-hearted. Always easy to talk to and made everyone feel welcome. Loved her red velvet cake and turkey meatballs!

I will miss talking to my friend Liz. All the good advice she gave me about anything and everything. She was wonderful. I make her apple cake all the time. Heaven got a really great lady. Heartfelt sympathy to John and family.

I was shocked to learn that Liz had passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. We were Andrews sisters and kept in touch on special occasions. Gone but not forgotten.

Having met John and Liz only a few years ago, I was welcomed with open arms. Their love for each other was inspirational. Liz was a force of nature and will be missed for her humor and the great food she brought to our pot lucks.

I have so many fond memories of Mrs Urbas. She was always so involved with our elementary school. Leslie and I have been close friends for many years and her Mom was always someone we could talk to and share a laugh. Everything she was involved in served to help others. Heaven has gained a very special angel who will be missed.

It was an honor to have had Mrs. Liz in our lives and the lives of our children. I have many fond memories of dinners and luncheons at Advent with her. I used to tell her all the time "I want to be like you when I grow up." She will be greatly missed. Peace to John and the family

Liz was a beautiful person. She brought kindness, laughter, and fun with her wherever she went, and she genuinely cared about others. I loved my time with her. I wish that she was still here enjoying life and people and making the world a better place with her presence. My heart goes out to her family.

Aunt Liz was truly a “fun” aunt. As children, my brothers and I could hardly wait for Uncle John, Aunt Liz and Leslie to come visit. We always had a great time and laughed the entire visit. Aunt Liz will be deeply missed but our loving memories of her will last forever. We were fortunate to have her in our lives.

Mrs. Urbas was like a second mom to me. Leslie and I are best friends, still, and shared many family times together. I remember fun sleep overs and conversations with Mrs. Urbas at their kitchen table talking about everything! And I do mean everything. Mrs. Urbas was someone we could talk to and ask questions about life. She was very kind and knowledgable. My own mother became great friends with her and we spent many Christmas eves with both families at my mom's house. She will certainly be missed.
