In the words of George Hess:
My beautiful, wonderful, caring wife Elizabeth, has gone on to be with our Lord and Savior. She had a heart as big as the moon, cared deeply for me her husband, children, sisters, brothers, and grandchildren. She was unique and rare with an array of talents, the golden touch, beautiful smile and so high class. She loved to travel, especially out West. The Lord gave me the perfect gift in my life with her. She will never be replaced, she was my wife, my best friend, my lover, my motivator, my life.
God needed another angel in heaven, I will miss her tremendously.

We love u allways
I’m Joan’s sister, Judy. I’ve met Liz, but I feel like I’ve known her throughout the years through Joan and how she talked about her so fondly over time. Joan thought the world of her. God bless you In your grief and sorrow.
I considered Liz my best friend. Even though we lived not far apart because of our busy lives etc. we didn’t see each other often but we talked when we could. She and I were together for almost 20 years with Clark’s sauce and did a lot of traveling together. I will miss her and I hope she’ll recognize me when I come her way.
Liz, you will and already are deeply missed by all that had the privilege to know you. God greeted you at his doorstep to Heaven. God bless and we will all be together one fine day. Love you dearly Liz!
