    Elizabeth and I were classmates for 4 years at Cathedral High School. I always expected her to have a career in science. We were very wholesome teenagers. Some of our social life consisted in going to German-American events with her parents. I think that’s where she met her husband, Jerry Leparik. I attended their wedding in – I think Immaculate Conception church in the Bronx. I was very sad to read of her passing.

    My deepest sympathy to Elizabeth's family.
    Elizabeth was a cousin of my mother's. I got to meet her when she studied in Germany and came to visit us in our childhood home in Altschweier near Baden-Baden.
    I will never forget the kindness of her and her parents, Caroline and Franz, who sent us many parcels filled with coffee, cosmetics, and clothes after the war -- for this we will always be deeply grateful.
    During Elizabeth's last visit to Germany we went to see the former homes of her relatives, where aunt Lisa, aunt Caroline, uncle Alois, and the others had lived.
    It was a very special day for both of us.
    In loving memory, Camilla

    I feel so fortunate to have met Liz. She was always so kind and generous. Before we left to move abroad, Liz gifted me with a little book of daily devotionals that she said was one of her favorites and wrote a very sincere note wishing us well in the front. It was so thoughtful and I will always think of Liz and her kindness every time I pick up that book. We’re so sorry that we won’t be there this week to celebrate her life but will be thinking of Liz and praying that she is at peace with all of her loved ones in heaven.

    My deepest sympathy to Liz’s family. I am Jon Watras’s mother in law and I had the immense pleasure of meeting her throughout many family events surrounding the wedding and birth of Ella Watras. Liz was one of the those rare warm people who you make an immediate connection with....and I did. I looked forward to seeing her. Her love of God and her family was worn like a badge of honor.
    Godspeed Liz, you will be dearly missed!

    Liz, you truly were one of the nicest people I ever came across. You “stepped” up to fill a role of grandma, never forgetting birthdays or big events, and always a part of our family. I love you so much, am so glad we got to see you, albeit brief but a moment where we looked at old photos, had a laugh and just enjoyed our time together. Say hi to grandpa, and know that your Christmas globe you gave to us will be a melody Ella will always have.

    Our condolences to the family. Though I only met Liz on a handful of occasions she was always warm and engaging. She was a Fulbright Scholar in math and physics but kept such a low profile about it that one would hardly know, save her overall brilliance. Godspeed Liz, you will be missed.

    Lovingly,
