She was born on October 31, 1963 in Buffalo, the daughter of the late Harold E. and Alieen B. (Young) Leiser. She was predeceased by her dear sister; Diane L. Koehler.

Elizabeth is the surrogate daughter to John and Kathleen; surrogate sister to April (Steven); surrogate aunt to Ellyjah, Abygail, Makenzy, and Addyson.

She was cared for by many wonderful people at the group homes she lived at, in Oakfield and Batavia. She loved attending The Arc in Batavia where she had many friends, and was cared for by great staff. In honor of Elizabeth's love for Minnie Mouse, the family is requesting that you wear pink, red, black, and white to her service. Elizabeth was good at doing what Minnie Mouse loves to say, "Remember, you're the one who can fill the world with sunshine."
