Liz was a devoted and lifelong member of the Waverly United Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School and participated in the choir. For over eighteen years, Liz shared her love as a Teacher’s Aid with the Waverly School District. She enjoyed quilting, sewing, bowling and treasured the time spent with her family.
