Elizabeth and her husband Norman owned Clover Knoll located on Route 207 in Campbell Hall. People from all areas would frequent their retail location for fresh milk and specialty products. She loved quilting and was very proud of many of her beautiful finished products. She also had an extensive collection of teddy bears that she treasured.

She is survived by her daughter; Mary Lou Cortright of Seaside, California, two grandsons; Michael and David Pilnick, also of California, granddaughter, Kristen and her husband Victor LaPointe of Otego, New York, great-grandchildren; Sophia, Lillian and Victor J. LaPointe, nieces; Melanie J. Lanc and her husband John of Circleville, New York, Nancy Brown of Wilmington, North Carolina, Cheryl Schuck of Richmond, Indiana, and nephews Phillip and Paul Haakmester of Middletown, New York.

She is pre-deceased by her husband Norman, and two sons, Christopher and Mark.
