Liz loved to bowl and play bridge, Nertz, and table tennis. She was a lifelong Indians fan and often spoke fondly about going to games as a child. She enjoyed baking, and her chocolate chip cookies, fudge, and “Grandma Applesauce” are all legendary. Liz loved raising her six children with Dan at their homes in Mayfield Heights and Lyndhurst. She adored her grandchildren, watching them play and grow. Most of all, she loved how close the whole family was, with everyone gathering regularly during the holidays.
