Palmyra: Peacefully left us on Monday, August 13, 2012 at Golisano Children's Hospital with her family by her side. Lizzy, age 9, was diagnosed with brain cancer in June 2011. Lizzy fought courageously and will forever be remembered for her vibrant personality and room-lighting smile. Lizzy made an indelible impact on all those who came in contact with her and will be deeply missed.
Lizzy is survived by her parents, Andrea and Jim; brother Jon; maternal grandmother Tam Abbott of Palmyra; fraternal grandparents Bev and Marty Mihalenko of Fairport and Jack and Sue Spencer of Cheektowaga; as well as many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends. Lizzy now joins her grandfather Bud Abbott, great aunt Wally Abbott, uncle Joe Robusto and cousin Peter Sargent.
All are invited to call at the Payne & Murphy Funeral Home, 1040 Route 31, Macedon, on Friday, August 17 from 4-8PM. A celebration of Lizzy's life will be offered on Saturday, August 18 at 11AM at the Western Presbyterian Church, Corner of Main St. and Church St., Palmyra. In lieu of flowers, memorials in memory of Lizzy may be directed to the following organizations that provided support and assistance through Lizzy's treatment: CURE Childhood Cancer Association of Rochester, 200 Westfall Road, Rochester, NY 14620 and The Wayne County Children's Cancer Fund, PO Box 61, Sodus, NY 14551.
In keeping with Lizzy's bright spirit, those attending the visitation and/or celebration of life service are asked to wear her favorite colors of green and blue.
