1946 - 2015 The wonderful and beloved Elizabeth Louise Karnicki left her earthly family too soon on May 8, 2015, while doing what she loved most, traveling with her husband of 46 years, Dr. Daniel Casimir Karnicki. Known to her friends around the world as Liz, she had an absolutely fabulous life. Cookie, as her father called her, was born January 18, 1946 to Florence and Eddie Williams in Chicago, IL. She attended Madonna High School, studied biology and sociology at the University of Illinois in Chicago, achieved her master's degree at Lamar University, and continued her education with a Doctorate of Psychology and Adult Learning at the University of San Francisco. Her thirst for life and learning, her spunk and sense of adventure, led her to travel around the globe. From her family's native Poland to her recent adventures in Cuba, she got to visit more of what this world has to offer than most. She shared this passion with her husband, Dan, and three children, Dawn, Jill and Daniel, Jr. After retiring from various professions that ultimately helped others become better people, she developed a love for the game of bridge, achieving the ranking of Life Master. She continued to grow and learn with a new group of friends at the Beaumont Bridge Studio, who quickly become her extended family. She also served as a congressional advocate for the AARP. Liz is survived by her immediate family, husband Daniel, children Dawn, Jill and Danny, Jr., brother Larry Williams, son-in-law Barry Sommer and spoiled dogs Bolero and Bubba. She deeply loved her grandchildren Caitlin, Clinton and Courtney. Great grandchildren Summer and Jackson brought her recent joy. Services to celebrate the life of Liz Karnicki will be held at 2pm on Thursday, May 14th at Broussards Mortuary, 1605 N Major Drive in Beaumont. Everyone is welcome. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her memory to the
