    A welcoming and engaging lady. Pleasant in all her ways. Even as a kid, she would always come and speak to me, wanting to know about me. I ran into her and your dad in Starbucks a few years back, she was still the same warm and welcoming lady. May your hearts have peace and jibe filled with wonderful memories. Hugs to you all.

    I was so saddened to hear about Elisabeth’s passing. I knew her from working at the Brickstone, and we shared so many , although brief stories and laughs. She was a kind, gentle and loving person with an uncanny ability to make people feel comfortable. She definitely left a heartprint!!! I will miss her.
    With my sincere sympathies to her family.
