1984 ~ 2018
During the early morning hours of April 14, 2018, the disease of addiction that had taken Elizabeth (Liz) Baldwin's joy and sparkle also took her life. While Liz was not defined by this cruel disease, it took its terrible toll during the last years of her life. Liz was a much-loved mother, wife, daughter, sister, grandchild, niece, aunt, and friend. Losing her so early has broken our hearts and left a huge hole in our futures. Her family, friends, and loved ones will remember her for the funny, intelligent, beautiful, and strong-willed person that she was.
Liz was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on December 18, 1984. She attended Judge Memorial High School and graduated from Westminster College in 2007 with her degree in Registered Nursing. As a nurse, she saved the lives of many newborns in the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Marks's Hospital where she worked for eight years. Liz is survived by her two sons, Liam and Owen, her husband Trevor, her parents, Brad and Linda Baldwin, her sisters, Jessica (Carter) Veasy, Allison, and Haley, along with extended family and friends.
In addition to loving her two boys, Liz had a passion for all things vintage and collectible. She could often be found at a local estate or yard sale. She was deeply caring and would always remember to write a heartfelt thank you card for the simplest of things. She was a creative and talented artist.
Liz's family will be holding a celebration of her life on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, from 11:30 to 2:00 at the Salt Lake Country Club located at 2400 Country Club Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah. We invite friends and family to bring photographs of Liz to be added to a memorial board that will be put together at the event.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made in Liz's name to the Holladay Preschool where Liam and Owen have been surrounded by love and grace for many years. The Preschool's address is 2631 Murray-Holladay Road, Holladay, Utah, 84117.
