Liz was an avid reader, having read over 7,000 books. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles daily and watched Jeopardy with Jim Monday-Friday. She loved to dance to live music and was a loyal fan of Nascar. Liz believed that charitable donations should be in your own local community. She was a strong supporter of the Haven, encouraged by her friend Ricky Felio.
