Elizabeth Russo Obituary
Elizabeth Russo

AGE: 59 • Bayville

Elizabeth "Liz" Russo died peacefully on July 5th after a heroic battle with carcinoid cancer. Raised in Bayville, New Jersey, Liz graduated from Central Regional HS and Katharine Gibbs School of Business. She worked as a bookkeeper for many years and recently retired from Toms River HS East.

Liz lived her life fiercely, and loved golfing, tennis, the beach, gambling, and spending time with her children. Liz also adored her grandnieces and spent much of her time playing and laughing with her "Kady." Liz never let cancer get in the way of doing these things and was truly a force to be reckoned with. She will be missed by all, but her warmth, courage, and zeal for life will live on in her loved ones.

Liz is survived by her loving children, Alexandra Russo and her fiancée, Erica Pehrsson, of St. Louis, Missouri, Nicholas Russo of Madison, New Jersey, and Michelle Russo of Toms River. Liz is also survived by her three sisters, Mary-Lou Accardi and her husband Carlo, Louise Kelly and her husband Roger, and Theresa Hardie, her nephew and godson, Chad Toughill, nieces Jessica Glasser, Rachel Hardie, and Meredith Hardie, and grandnieces Kadence Glasser and Olivia White.

Services will be held on Thursday, July 13th from 3-7 PM at the Timothy E. Ryan Home for Funerals, 706 Atlantic City Blvd (Rt 9) in Bayville, NJ. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Denise Marie Flaherty Memorial Foundation at, or at DMF Foundation, 7013 Windsor Way, Elon, NC 27244. Condolences may be sent by visiting
