Mansfield - Elizabeth "Liz" J. (Maurer) Lehman, 91 of Mansfield, Ohio passed away peacefully on July 8th 2018.

Liz was born February 24, 1927 in Mansfield, Ohio to the Late Anton and Margaret (Jung) Maurer.

Lehman, whom she had known since childhood and recently celebrated their 71st Wedding Anniversary. Liz clerked for Richland County Clerk of Courts Office for 24yrs, retiring as Chief Deputy Clerk in 1992. A devoted Grandmother known to her grandchildren and great grandchildren as "Nana," she always knew the latest trends before we did. She enjoyed knitting and watching her Ohio State Buckeyes, however her skills were in crafting her Christmas tree skirts for the family. She would spend her summers in her flower gardens or reading the latest novel in the winter months but would prepare her Hungarian Paprika Goulash for the family anytime we wanted. She enjoyed telling stories of her trips to Europe, the sandy shell filled shores of Sanibel Island, FL with the entire family at Thanksgiving or the family gatherings at the lake house in Michigan. She was also an active member of the Mansfield Liederkranz and Catholic Newcomers and many other organizations and charities throughout her life.
