My dear, kind and loving sister, Liz (or Uba as I always called her) will always be in my heart. When she went to Heaven, I felt as though a part of me went with her. Of course, I'll see her again along with the rest of our loved ones. See you in the sweet by- and-by Uba. I love you my dear sister....

As you all know, we always called Liz "UBA". We could not pronouce her name when we were little so we uttered that name and it stuck. Uba was a wonderful sister, full of love and laughter. She had such a beautiful smile. When she was younger, I always thought she looked like Elizabeth Taylor. She was a very beautiful lady and was very dedicated to her family as well as her family at the Red Lobster.
We did not have a very good childhood, but we all grew up to be hard working people dedicated to whatever we tackled. A friend of mine wrote to me and said that we must have had a good mother as we turned out so well. We did have a good mother and we give her credit for everything.
I just hope that Uba was looking down from heaven to see what a beautiful funeral she had and how wonderful the Red Lobster and her Red Lobster family
did in connection with the funeral.
She would have loved to know that they announced on the radio a feature on UBA
and how dedicated she was to the Red Lobster.
I still miss her very much and just regret that I did not spend more time with her. I still cannot believe that she is not with us anymore. I think about her every day. Uba, I love and miss you. Much love from your sister, Louise

To the Family of Mrs. Liz, I had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Liz over 20 years ago for several years and had wonderful conversations with her. I ran into her in the last year or so and we were able to do some catching up. She always had smile on her face and a nice word for you. I wish I had been able to pay my respect to her in her final hour but I know she is looking down on all of and just smiling a way, of course, with her lipstick on.

Mrs. Liz you will be greatly missed by many!

it bodes well when a persons passage through life touches so many lives that the end brings so many good thoughts and memories to the forefront.

We will miss Betty (that's what we called her), she was a wonderful lady, we were neighbors for many many years. We made it a point to keep in touch over the years, always loved talking with her, as she was so interesting to talk to. Our prayers are with Cathy, Brian, Gary and the rest of the family.

What a kind and gracious lady! I worked with Mrs. Liz for 2 years at Red Lobster and she always had only the best to say about people. Her spirit was a light to many and her smile was a welcome invitation to share friendship. She was so very proud of her family…..We will sincerely miss her and our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

We had only met your mother once, and she was a very loving person. We are sorry for your loss, but she is no longer in any pain, at least she went fast some people have to deal with it for a long time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you. Love Okey and Michelle Cozzens

To all of Liz's family and friends: We all know what a special woman Liz was, and I hope that we will all continue in her spirit to serve and love others as Liz always did. Learn from her laughter, teach others with the tenacity she did, and rejoice in your life as she did in hers. To all of her friends at Red Lobster, please know I am thinking of you, too. Liz taught us all so much. In remembrance and love, Kimberly (McCormick) McLerren, former RL server

What a wonderful beautiful lady...I worked at Red Lobster about 5 years ago and I so enjoyed rolling silverware with Mrs. Austin. We chit chatted and laughed...she was a fantastic person full of life. She was so loved by everyone at Red Lobster. R.I.P. You kind soul.
