Liz loved her children and grandchildren very much, and there was nothing (nothing) she wasn’t willing to do for them. Although she showed a tough love to others, she had a kind and caring heart, and loved her family very much. Liz enjoyed hanging out with her family
listening to music, dancing to the cowboy cumbia, gambling, and playing Yahtzee, in which her grandchildren knew to always let grandma win!
A special appreciation to her daughters Paula and Andrea who cared for her during the past year, special niece Kim who always went to visit her throughout the years. We are going to miss our mother, grandmother very much, and her delicious cooking of enchiladas, tamales, tortillas and chicken fried rice.
