of Glendale, AZ relocated to her heavenly home on Sept 27, 2013. Elizabeth will be remembered by many because of her amazing love for all she met (especially children & animals), her beauty (inside & out) & her unfailing strength, courage & faith throughout her 5 1/2 year battle against cancer (Inflammatory Breast Cancer). Elizabeth was born on Jan 9, 1964 in Chandler, AZ to John Lloyd & Della Elizabeth Bahr. She married Michael Dwaine Baker on January 25, 1986 (divorced in 2002); together they celebrated the birth of a daughter, Seleania Marie-Lindsey Baker on July 10, 1989. Elizabeth married Ron E Fugate on Sept 14, 2002. Elizabeth is survived by her husband (Ron), daughter (Seleania), son-in-law (Joey), step-son (Robert), daughter-in-law (Sho), daughter-from-another-mother (Anna), son-from-another-mother (David), grandchildren (Aubrey, Paisley, Mickaella & Ansel), mother (Savette), four brothers (Frank, Tony, Carlos & James), "bestest" (Tracy), ex (Mike) & too many other loved ones & friends to count. Though we grieve because we miss her, we will celebrate Elizabeth's life together on Oct 19, 2013 at 11 AM @ Pure Heart Christian Fellowship (www.pureheart.org), 14240 N 43rd Ave, Glendale, AZ. The family would like to extend our appreciation & gratitude to Dr Sharon Ondreyco, MD & the wonderful staff @ Arizona Oncology (arizonaoncology.com) for the battle they fought with her against cancer & to Hospice of the Valley (esp. Janet Wayman, RN) for their kind & loving support during Elizabeth's final days on earth. Instead of flowers, please consider donating to one of three causes that were near & dear to Elizabeth's heart: IBC Research Foundation (www.ibcresearch.org), World Vision (www.worldvision.org) & HALO Animal Rescue (halorescue.org).
