Liz is proceeded in death by her father, mother, brother—William Kane, great-grandson—Archer Markman, many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Gene, Annmarie and family, I give you my deepest sympathy and thank you Annmarie for introducing me to your parents years ago at the Hospital's Craft Sale. They were always very nice to talk to and receive hugs from. Hopefully there are crafty things to do in heaven since she would be a good teacher to those that don't know how to crochet etc. Liz just save some yarn for me, I want to get in on the fun too when it is my turn. RIP and we'll all miss you.

Mrs. Markman, as I always called her for the many years I knew her, was a sweet, loving woman. Always a smile to light up a room. She will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to the family. R.I.P. Mrs. Markman.

Liz was like a second mom to me all through high school, my parents always knew where I was. She was a awesome lady and will be missed by her family. The skies have a bright new star to watch over her family, and she'll be smiling. Rest in Peace🙏

Liz and Gene have been close friends of my parents for many years. They had many wonderful memories together. I was blessed to get to reconnect with them over the past few years. My thoughts and prayers are with Gene, Annmarie and all the family. May Liz's warm and loving spirit live on in their hearts.
