I am deeply saddened to hear of Liz's passing. I feel lucky to have had her as my friend. I so enjoyed our times volunteering with "The World of Art" at Shrine Burn Hospital. Liz and Barbara were so helpful to me when I taught there. It was always fun sharing a meal and visiting after that. We were both members of the Galveston Art League. I loved seeing her in all her beads at Mardi Gras, so clever! I'm sorry to know that I have lost one more of my "Ursuline Sisters". She was a good person!!! Gay Paratore

We were so sorry to read of Elizabeth's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. She was a talented artist. I still have the Christmas cards she decorated and sent us. They were beautiful. She helped me decorate my oldest son's first birthday cake 52 years ago. Mom & Dad (Maxine and Leon Roth) and Elizabeth were good friends and she was Mom's cousin. May she rest in peace. Ella

My condolences to the family of this great lady. She was truly a lady. She had great artistic talent and yet she was so humble. She helped me so much in my art and gsve me great inspiration. I met her at the art league and I took art classes at galveston college. God will truly remember here in the ressurrection and my hope is that i will be there, too. Take care and keep her in your conversations and this will keep her alive to the next generations. Sincerely Lynn Velasco

So sad to hear of Liz's passing; sincere condolences to Barbara. We had the good fortune to briefly live across the street from Liz and Barbara. Even though we did not know her long, you could tell that she was an amazing, warm, and vivacious person. We remember both of them sitting on their porch swing in their small but charming little side yard, holding court while sipping Dr. Pepper with straws. You could always count on them offering you a drink on a hot summer day. I will never forget the first time we saw them bedecked in thirty pounds of plastic beads- she was the personification of Mardi Gras ! She will always be present in our home, as we have one of her beautiful ceramic fish sculptures prominently displayed.

Barbara and Leo Sorry to hear about the death of your mama. From the stories I have heard I know she had a good life. Galveston will miss her on the streets dressed up in her costume during the Mardi Gras season. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Nanete and Gary
