Kovash, Elizabeth (Liz) Jimenez |
Elizabeth (Liz) Jimenez Kovash, born in Las Cruces, New Mexico on March 16, 1960 passed away in Denver, Colorado on November 16, 2016 after a long and couragous battle with cancer. Liz was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and above all, friend. She was born to Ramon and Emma Jimenez and was the eldest of four siblings; Sandra Adams, Lucy Jimenez, and Ramon Jimenez II. She married the love of her life, Richard Kovash, on May 17, 1986, in Las Cruces, New Mexico. They moved from Ventura, California to Albuquerque, New Mexico where, at the age of 27, Liz gave birth to their first and only child, Megan Kovash. To many people, Liz was the strongest person they have ever met, even in her last days. Mentor to many and friend to all, Liz left behind a community of people brought together by their love for her. She will live on forever in the memories of those she has left behind, especially her beloved husband and daughter. Our hearts break in her absence while also rejoice knowing she is no longer suffering and is reunited with her mother, Emma, in heaven.
Rosary and Funeral Services will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 2200 S Logan St, Denver, CO on November 25th at 7:00pm and November 26th at 10:00am, respectively, with the assistance of the Archdiocese of Denver Mortuary.
