She spent much of her time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who were her world and brought her immense amounts of joy. Liz loved to watch football, especially the New Orleans Saints. She also enjoyed playing BINGO, reading, and spending time with her husband, Jimmy, at the racetrack and casino. She was a lover of animals, especially her pets whom she cooked for and adored, and the pets of her daughter’s and grandchildren.
