Liz Elmasian was a devoted, kind, and loving wife, mother, and Grammy. She dedicated her life to fulfilling these three roles, and made each seem effortless due to her inherent air of grace, happiness, and poise.
A social butterfly, she delighted in making new friends and catching up with life-long pals. Having grown up on a farm on the outskirts of Fresno, she cultivated an enduring love for gardening, spending hours in her backyard “Magic Garden,” planting every kind of flower, from azaleas to zinnias, but she especially loved her roses.
Liz also adored spending time with her beloved dog Bandit—a mixed-breed mutt who stole her heart, and her slippers, on more than one occasion. She and Nish loved to dote on Bandit, adopting him as their “fourth child,” since Julie, Larry, and Jeff are all grown up. Liz and Nish’s favorite holiday to host was Thanksgiving, and while they made a fabulous turkey with all the trimmings, Liz’s perennial specialty was her delectable spaghetti.
She was warm and had a playful sense of humor, often joking she and Jenna should get matching tattoos. She was a loving wife to Nish for 65 years, who in turn adored her and dubbed her his “doll.” She was a wonderful mother to Julie, Larry, and Jeff, nurturing each of them as individuals and always encouraging them to believe in themselves, and a wonderful mother-in-law to Ida and Bob. She was a phenomenal Grammy to Jenna, taking her on countless trips to the zoo and the park to feed the ducks when she was a child, and going on shopping sprees and spending hours chatting on the phone when she grew up.
Liz lived a long and happy life, full of love, family, and friendship. She is greatly cherished and sorely missed, and leaves behind an indelible legacy of faith, hope, and kindness that will bloom in the hearts of her family forever.
