Liz will be greatly missed!! I enjoyed working with Liz very much. She was a very caring person. Two years ago at Christmas time, I came into work and there was a present on my desk. I asked Liz who put it there and she said she had no idea. I stood there with tears running down my face and Liz asked me if I was upset or if they were happy tears. I told her they were happy tears, wondering who would do such a kind thing. She never admitted it was her but I found out later it was her. I was going through a rough time in my life and she was there to help me. That’s the kind of person she was. She was always there to help others. RipLiz!!

Great memories from when we were children, all playing together mostly at Nana Webb’s house in Dunedin. Vividly remember Elizabeth coming to say goodbye at Christchurch when she left for America after getting married in Dunedin. So glad we had been in touch this year. R.I.P.

Liz and I were best friends and co-workers for nearly 37 years.
Liz took me to buy the first pet I ever owned.
Liz hosted my baby shower and organized my wedding shower.
Liz went on vacation with us to Virginia, Florida, and many local attractions.
She was incredibly generous with our son Ben who she always considered a grandson. Since his birth we’ve only referred to her as Grammy Beller.
She taught us about all the Saints and how to give up something for Lent. She wasn’t even Catholic but she worked for a time with the Sisters of Mercy in New Zealand and many of their traditions stuck with her. She was always asking St. Anthony or St. Christopher for help.
She strongly believed that the full moon and the new moon were responsible for people’s behavior.
When my family took a nontraditional turn it took her a minute to adjust but when she did she was fiercely loyal.
She was a helper. She was generous. She was a hard worker. She was stubborn. She was strict and traditional but fun and loving too.
As an adult she got her GED and then went to college at Lansdale Business for Business Admin and Paralegal and she graduated with honors.
She used to play the violin really well when she was a child.
She could draw abstract art like a pro.
She was proud of her Scotish heritage.
Being born in New Zealand, she loved the Queen. She was prepared to stay home from work should the Queen have passed first.
Ever since I've known her she’s owned a cat. She always wanted a dog. When her circumstances permitted a dog she got 3.
She loved her son more than herself. She was making plans to shop for a Mother of the Groom dress. She was very happy to see him being loved and being in love.
She loved a gin and bitter lemon after work on her deck.
She was a source of good morale at Bally Ribbon.
She became a US Citizen a few years ago. She always called New Zealand “back home”.
I loved her very much and i’ll always miss her.

I've only know Liz for 7 short months, but our bond grew quickly over the past several months. We were making plans for out 2020 wedding with Jamie Beller, and we were both super excited. My fondest recent memory was when she gave me her beautiful necklace to wear on our wedding day and I told her I would wear it proudly. She smiled and gave me a hug. She will be dearly missed but will forever be in my heart.
