Dear Linda and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I have wonderful, fun memories of Elizabeth and I zipping around Fountain Square in the golf cart for several Art Squared events! She was fun and kind and talented. She will be missed! Xoxo, Lori Rangel & the La Margarita family 💔

Kelly...Your mother was a co- worker of mine at CVS. She meant a lot to me. We had our breaks and lunches together. She came to visit me when I was hospitalized and kept track of my progress. She also left work early once to take me to the ER. I heard many stories of your life and what a strong wonderful daughter you were. Please know that she holds a special place in my heart.

Elizabeth hired me at Castings when I was fresh out of college. She even allowed me to be in her painting crew for a casino in Lawrenceburg, IN. I’m thankful for all the great instruction she gave me to be a faux finishing artist. Love you, Elizabeth!

I never got to meet Ms. Elizabeth, but she was a favorite person of Emily, which speaks volumes of the wonderful person she was. My heart goes out to the entire extended Arthur family. I know she will be missed.

Elizabeth was a mother to me, she always treated me like her own and I will forever be thankful for the chance to know and love this amazing woman. She taught me a lot about being a stand up human being and I will hold those memories near and dear. I love you for always.
