Elliott Children Memorial Fund

On January 23, 2015, Liz Elliott passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly, at the age of 52.  Liz was a very selfless and loving wife, mother, and friend who never hestitated to help others in need.  She left behind 5 children, ages 6, 11 yr old twins, 17, and 20.  Throughout her life Liz dedicated her days to serving as the President of the PTO, a leader of the girl scouts, a foster parent to many children, organizing events for her adopted children, and volunteering to help those in need.  Unfortunately, for over a decade, Liz suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis, a debilitating disease, but it never stopped her from smiling or from serving others. 

The loss of Liz has been devastating to all who knew her, but especially her children and husband.  Due to Liz's diagnosis of severe RA, she was not able to obtain nor maintain a life insurance policy, which is financially devastating to her family, now only having one income.  One child will be graduating from high school this year, but there are three others who have many years ahead of them before they can contribute financially.  They have many needs that they need help funding, but most importantly, their educational needs.

The family of Liz Elliott would appreciate any help people are willing to give in order to help Liz's children.
