Elizabeth Ann “Liz” Brown, 80, died Tuesday, December 12, 2023 in Oxnard. She was born October 22, 1943 in Lynwood to Clarence and Clementine and was one of seven children. She grew up in China Lake, graduated from Burroughs High School, and attained her associate degree from Oxnard College in her later years, where she graduated with high honors which was a huge accomplishment.
Liz was a wonderful wife and mother. She was a woman of great morals and values who loved family more than anything. She had a heart the size of the world and anyone fortunate to know her could tell you that she touched their life in a positive manner. She loved carnivals and fairs, and this left a great deal of memories for her kids who lived on the midway riding rides and playing games while they were in town. Holidays were always made better by her yummy cooking and famous pumpkin pies, chocolate brownie muffins with and without nuts and her unforgettable deviled eggs. If you had a special request such as meatloaf, she would throw that in there too. Neighbors were often treated to special treats such as freshly baked cakes just because she thought they may like it. If you ever had one of her pineapple upside-down cakes you know what heaven on a plate tastes like. She would also make sure to send the fishermen in her life out on the boat with lots of yummy muffins and extra goodies, too.
Liz loved to go to the gym and work out with her friends whom she cared for dearly. Rosie, Elle, Mena, Chung, Hack, Richard and Irene are the ones we remember by name. Thank you for all the company and friendship. She enjoyed baking several times a year for the Wounded Warrior Project at the Seabee Base in Port Hueneme as well as sending Boy Scout popcorn overseas. She felt compelled to honor the veterans that served our country. She loved to knit some of the most beautiful baby blankets you have ever seen, potholders and wash cloths, too. If you wanted to learn she was always willing to share her craft. If we had to say what her favorite hobby was, it was people. Liz loved to visit, make friends, and just bring love and joy to those around her.
She will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her.
She is survived by her husband of 44 years Robert Brown; daughters: Michelle (Danny), Katie (John), and Kathy (significant other David); son Mark (Tammi); siblings: Nancy, Susan (Bob), James, and Denise; grandchildren Mark, Alyona, Tiffany, Ben, Patrick, Tryna, Amber, Joe, Nate, Kat, Aaron, Ashley, Lynn, and Marie; and great-grandchildren: Sam, Lilly, Vera, Makayla, Brodie, Brynn, Phillip, Tommy, Bash, Rollie, Elijah, and Mikayla. She was preceded in death by her parents Clarence and Clementine; sisters Barbara and Caroline; and brothers-in-law Chuck, Joe and Keith.
She will be interred at 10:00 a.m. on January 6, 2024 in Ridgecrest. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, January 27, 2024 at Reardon Funeral Home, 511 N. A St., Oxnard.
