Elizabeth “Liz” was born on January 25, 1943, in Chicago, Illinois. She is the daughter of Omar and Louise (Green) Coffman. The family moved to Battle Creek in 1944, and she lived there for the rest of her life. In 1961 she graduated from Harper Creek Community Schools. On August 25, 1962, she married William A.

Liz was a homemaker while her children were young, then was employed by Harper Creek Community Schools in Food Service for 15 years, retiring in 1993. She also volunteered at Binder Park Zoo. Liz and William enjoyed traveling after retirement, spending 22 winters in the Southwest, but never left before spending Christmas with their family. She also enjoyed cooking, gardening, and spending all the time she could with her family.
