Our family knew Elizabeth and her family for many years, as both families spent summers in Touisset Highlands, Warren, RI, enjoying the beautiful Kickemuit River. Her brilliance and calm personality are memorable. She enjoyed life to the fullest and will be sadly missed by all who became acquainted with her. Sincerely,the Bourne girls.
