Condolence from Judy Mills on September 29th, 2015 9:28 AM

To Elizabeth’s family and Marguerite:
I knew Elizabeth for two reasons. Firstly, she was a close sister to Marguerite, whom I taught with for several years. Secondly, she was a fellow Middlesex teacher. She came to some of the same meetings I was at, she visited with Marguerite often, she was often around in the same circle that I was in. I enjoyed her smile, her quieter ways, her friendliness and her mannerisms. She was a wonderful, gentle person. I have been blessed to know her.
