Liz was born in Boston and raised in Mission Hill. She was a proud RN, graduating from St. Elizabeth’s School of Nursing. After raising her family, she enjoyed a fulfilling nursing career specializing in long term care. She touched countless lives as a compassionate caregiver for those in need.

Liz loved with all of her heart. Her five children meant the world to her and she was very proud of their many accomplishments, but more importantly their character. She was an incredible mom and she would always say she was blessed to have her daughters as her best friends. She had a special bond with her “treasures” and she made each one of them feel as if they were her favorite. She adored her large extended family, her lifelong friends, her Westborough community, and she was deeply rooted in her faith.

She maintained her fighting spirit and tremendous sense of humor until the very end. Liz will be remembered for her kindness, generosity, and her strength. She will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her, but her essence will live on through her legacy.
