My sincere sympathy to all the family. I have known Liz for at least 30 or more years from working with her at Sears. She was a good friend and co worker. The last i talked to her was towards the end of last year. Planned on going to lunch with our group and we had a lot of cancellations . I believe the weather was bad. Ended up to be just myself and Liz. So we decided not to go. I wish we did go now. I will definitely miss her. She was a very good friend to me. Take care all of you.. Stay strong and God Bless. My prayers and sympathy to all. Sincerely, Sandy Di Pietro

Our deepest condolences to all of Aunt Liz's family and friends. Sadly, time passes swiftly and we find ourselves aging as a family. We have not attended the family reunion in Pennsylvania for a few years, but enjoyed those we were fortunate to attend. God does not cause sad things to happen, but his promise is to stand beside us when they do. May you find comfort in your memories and feel love from the prayers of family and friends.

Cindy, my sincere condolence to you and your family. I have many fond memories of your Mom. We enjoyed our water aerobics class and our Sears Luncheons. She had a great sense of humor and a wonderful laugh. I will miss her very much. May she rest in God’’s loving care.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My Mom left us with all kinds of beauty for us to remember her by. Please keep her in your heart by remembering how she was when you were with her. How you smiled together, shared your life stories together and held each other in your hearts. Being with Mom you were and for evermore family. She is at peace and has the glory of everlasting joy provided by her belief in God as a devout catholic Amen

From the 1980’s to present, reunion after reunion Liz was the Ohio rep and influential to all who came to the Prokay gathering year after year with positive enthusiasm, family and lasagna. Some (me too) were let down when getting in line too late and finding the lasagna pan empty upon arrival.... RATS!!!!! The brave woman gave up a plush hotel in exchange for staying on site Saturday night in the big room of the rental hall on a bed cot with Uncle Skip and various other family members nearby. Aunt Liz I will greatly miss the future gatherings without your presence but treasure with a smile the memories of our times together. Missing you. Mark Prokay (and Carol)

Light, Love, and Laughter Grace and Elevation Loyal, Kind, and Caring Aunt Liz made the world a better place. She made everyone feel special. Her gift to us all was the happiness she exemplified...that and her lasagna! She will remain forever in our hearts, and her memories will make us smile. Continued prayers for Frankie, Vera, Bobby, Cyndi - their families and her precious grandchildren, all of the cousins, nieces & nephews, and all that will sorely miss her. She is in the hands of our Lord and she is truly safe and at peace. Blessed are we to have shared her life.
