My deepest sympathy for your loss. It's been over 50 years since I was introduced to Lizzie by her daughters Jean and Jane. Those were good times.

Lizzie - My Mom Too.

Lizzie really did love you the "most." Always caring for others more than herself.
Generous to a fault. Faith, family, friends (and the Minnesota Twins) were her priorities.

Totally committed to her husband, Earl, especially so serving him diligently during the last
few years of his life while he battled Alzheimer's. Fully dedicated to her family.
An example for us all. We greatly miss her already. We do take solace in knowing
she is in heaven praising her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for eternity.

Lizzie would admit she was not perfect - no one is. I did determine fairly early on to agree
that she was "always right" - almost always anyway. Also, to not mistakenly eat her
"Bing" candy bar she had set aside - could peeve her off a bit. I think she forgave, but didn't forget.

I believe two bible passages describe Lizzie quite well:
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a and 13:
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails...
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Proverbs 31:10-31:
10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

I know she and Jesus desperately want you to join her when you pass away.
There are many Bible verses explaining the way of salvation. Here a few to get you started:

Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved...13 for, Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Acts 16:31 They replied, Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved..."

I wish to express my condolences to the families and friends of Mrs. Westegaard. May you draw comfort from the Inspired Word at 1 Peter 5:6,7.
