Obituary of Elizabeth Motz

Elizabeth was a caring woman with an incredibly warm disposition. It’s not at all surprising that such a friendly person was also a dog lover. Elizabeth always had 1 or 2 dogs in the house at any time. For Elizabeth, the most important thing was family. She couldn’t be relied on to drive someone somewhere, however, because she never drove a Single day in her life. Despite being a simple woman, Elizabeth always wore her red lipstick, the only makeup that she ever wore.

Elizabeth belonged to the Home Bureau, a community of women promoting interests pertaining to home life. Through this community, Elizabeth helped contribute to fantastic scholarships for college, as well as meeting with others who shared her interests in knitting and crocheting. Often, she would enjoy knitting in front of the window to pass the time. She could make anything from afghans and sweaters to dishrags and towels.
