Elizabeth "Liz" Irene Deegan, 77, of Reynoldsville, Pa., died on Thursday, Dec. 22, 2016, at Christ the King Manor after a courageous three-year battle with lung cancer.
Born in Reynoldsville, Pa., on Nov. 23, 1939, she was the daughter of the late Leonard H. and Vira Z. (Fuller) Deegan.
Liz was a finisher for many years at Jackson China in Falls Creek, and retired from Oak Heritage in Brockway in 2005. She was a member of Saint Mary's Church in Reynoldsville, and the Rosary and Altar Society. She was a member of the Reynoldsville Fraternal Order of the Eagles, and a member of the Ladies Eagles Auxiliary. In addition, she was on the Reynoldsville Homecoming Committee for many years.
Liz was known for her sense of humor and her never-give-up attitude. Throughout her illness, she remained steadfast in her faith, and upbeat and positive through all treatments, always bringing a smile to those who knew her. She was an inspiration for all those who suffer, and will be greatly missed by family and friends.
Liz is survived by two children, Brian Deegan of Reynoldsville, Pa., and Michele Pearce and her husband Bill of Reynoldsville, Pa.; six granddaughters: Krystal, Kaitlin, Kiersten, Brianna, MaKayla and Shelby and one great grandson Brett. She is also survived by one sister, Margaret Ann "Cricket" Kaizer of Reynoldsville, Pa., and one brother, Raymond Deegan and his wife Audrey of Smethport, Pa., and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Liz was preceded in death by her three brothers, Francis, Thomas and William.
