Elizabeth graduated in 1954 from North Quincy High School, where she met the love of her life, Al. Elizabeth was extremely devoted to her family and spending time with them brought her great joy. When Elizabeth wasn’t spending time with her family, she could be found playing a game of solitaire or doing the daily crossword puzzle.
