She was born in Asbury Park and was baptized at Trinity Episcopal Church in 1915 and was a lifetime member until her passing. Elizabeth was a legal secretary for twenty years, and a former owner of The House by the Sea Hotel in Ocean Grove, NJ. She was an Honorary Member of the Ariel Club, a charter member of the Jersey Shore Women's Club, and a former member of the Spring Meadow Golf Club. Elizabeth maintained a residence at Crown Colony Club in Ocean Ridge, Florida for many years.

She was predeceased by her parents, Edna Seger Leaver and William L. Leaver, and an infant sister, Janet. Her beloved husband, the Hon. Robert J. Layton, died in 1974. Elizabeth is survived by her sons, John R. Layton and daughter-in-law, Martha, of Hardy, Virginia, and Gary R. Layton and daughter-in-law, Jeanette of Interlaken; a grandson, Andrew J. Layton and his wife Sarah of Albany, CA; her three granddaughters, Nancy E. Elsam of Raleigh, NC, Laura L. Klink and her husband Joseph of Beaverton, OR and Jennifer K.

She is also survived by many cherished cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

At her request, no visiting hours will be held, and a private, family mass will be held at a later date. Please note, however, that she had a grateful heart for all the love and good cheer shared with many over the years, and that any kind thought or prayer kept in mind at this time would be a blessing.
