She and her husband met and resided in Meriden, Conn., for 19 years. They moved to Chelmsford, Mass., in 1973 and established an insurance and real estate agency. She was a licensed agent in each field. They retired in 1994. Elizabeth was a beautiful lady, possessing a personality loved by all. Her charm, wit, generosity and caring character endeared her to each individual she met. To those who knew this charming Irish lady, please smile when she comes to mind. She never allowed the travails caused by her experience with Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia to conquer her ready smile. She will be surely missed by all. Interment and memorial services will be private and at the discretion of the family. Her family would ask those who might wish to make an offering in her memory to consider Congregational Church, North Chelmsford, Mass., and/or CFIDS organization. Guest book at
