Elizabeth graduated from Palmyra High School.  Professionally Elizabeth worked as a greeter and cashier at Walmart.  Elizabeth enjoyed supporting her children and grandchildren in their activities and helped by being a Girl Scout leader. Anyone that knew her would say she was a "people person".  She looked forward to attending social events with her friends and family. You could often find her reading, keeping up on current events, watching westerns (John Wayne being her favorite), listening to Johnny Cash, and watching the Hallmark channel. She was an avid collector of angels.  Traveling with her family and spending time with her grandchildren meant the world to her.  Elizabeth was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church where she was active within several groups and activities. Ann was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Pallbearers will be Steven Walker, Mike Walker, Victor Laks, Kane Laks, Robbie Evanoff, and Ryan Sparks
