She is survived by her son Andrew, daughter Charlotte Kenney (Raymond), and son Peter (Patty); five grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and numerous relatives in Canada and Hungary. Elizabeth was predeceased by her husband Dr. Geza L. Joó and her daughter-in-law Doreen M. Joó.

    Dear Charlotte, Ray and families,
    Well my friend, it was a sad day to hear about the passing of your Dear Mom. I feel as if I have known her for many years through our conversations. She sounded like a fantastic woman, friend and Mother. It is obvious that she excelled at Motherhood, and I am so sure your Mom was very proud of you. You were a very dedicated daughter and friend to your Mom. May you continue to have happy memories Charlotte.
    Sending our Heartfelt Condolences and prayers to you and your family.
