It is with the deepest sadness that the family of Elizabeth Peil announces that she left this world on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013, surrounded by her loving family, at the age of 88 years old. Elizabeth was a child of the depression, born on April 29, 1925 in Lincoln, Nebraska to James and Lucy Roucis. As a young woman she met, fell in love with and married William F, Peil in Denver, Colorado. They were married for a lifetime of 60 years before he preceded her in death seven years ago. She was inspired by nature and her passion for gardening, antiquities, gourmet cooking, and, her home that she cherished. Her personality was larger-than-life, and her voice unforgettable. Her life's work was her family, to which she gave “her all”. Her greatest accomplishments were giving of herself to others, her generosity of heart, and above all else “caring” - without which there is nothing. She will be sorely missed by her family, neighbors, and friends. She is survived by her daughters Susan Peil and husband Vince Zounek of Lyons, CO, Anita Peil of Chardonne, Switzerland, and Elissa Mogab of Denver, CO; her grandchildren William J. Curti and Jordan C. Curti; her sister Patricia Roucis of Lincoln, NE; her dearest friend and caregiver Dixie Nelson; her goddaughter Lucy Roucis, and her ornery, dedicated, beloved and humble canine companion, Paris. A graveside service will be held for the immediate family, only. A Memorial service will be held on her birthday, April 29th, 2014 at Foothills Gardens of Memory Cemetery.
