Our beloved wife and mother, Elizabeth M. Liebergesell, died peacefully at home surrounded by her family, on the evening of Dec. 15, 1994, after a very short battle with a most aggressive brain tumor.

She began her forever questing and adventurous life on Jan. 4, 1924, in Paderborn, Germany, as Elizabeth Stiensmeier Claes. Her formal education began at the University of Muenster in Germany and concluded at the University of Utah with an M.A. in German.

In later years she volunteered as a tutor at Lynn Bennion Elementary School. She married Otto Liebergesell July 22, 1951, in Paderborn. She followed him the next year to Salt Lake City, Utah, where she found satisfaction in pursuing her many interests, mostly academics, the arts, and nature.
