Remembrances – Liz’s Legacy

This musical offering is a fitting melody to evoke the spirit of Liz’s life, sent to us by Phoebe Anne Sorgen of the Mist Tree Moon Circle who have been meeting regularly for over 25 years after forming when they took the life-changing and wonderful Unitarian Universalist course Liz created, Rise Up & Call Her Name.

These words were sung by Anna, the hospice nurse as she anointed Liz’s feet with lavender oil to send Liz on the next phase of her journey:

For Liz

From this day on, I will know peace

and bear the fruits of everlasting love.

And as my cares and sorrows cease,

I’ll fly the heavens like the passing dove.


From this day on, I will know rest

As sweet affection holds my memory.

And I have seen that I am blessed,

With all the loving kindness given me.


My soul knows the way to take me home today

I know I’m only passing through


From this day on, I will know rest

From all the worldly worries I once knew.

And I have seen that I am blessed

With all my heart I give my love to you.

Dear Bob, I enjoyed meeting Liz and you back when I was working on the Wheel. You came to a workshop I was presenting. It was good to keep in touch all those years. I hope that you are finding the treasury of love woven with Liz through all the years in your memories, and daily life. Much love and aloha.


Bob, Chris and I send our love to you! We enjoyed having you both as neighbors and getting to share in the adventures of everyday life. We send you our prayers and many memories of 214 10th st PG!




Bob – Liz was a totally amazing woman who left an indelible footprint of written spiritual history for women worldwide. Was honored to recommend her for the UUWF Ministry to Women Award earlier this year. I so treasured our friendship. I hope the many wonderful memories you have of her will give you strength and peace in the coming days.


Thanks for sharing this, Bob. I will always cherish the close friendship Liz and I shared. Such a wise woman. Blessings to you.


And from me, Bob. I wish you all best and pray for Liz with love.


Hi Bob so very sorry to hear of Liz’s passing. You both helped me so much with my women heroes project. Liz was such a joy and an inspiration to me. I’m sure her spirit is watching over you. Be well and take care.


Bob, I have good memories of seeing both of you when I was in Monterey a few years ago.
I am so sorry about Liz. I sent a donation to the Women’s Federation in her memory.
She definitely left a mark in the words she put together.
My thoughts are with you as you continue your journey.


Dear Bob, I am so saddened by this news. I’ll never forget that you and Liz were one of the first people who warmly greeted me at UUSF when I walked in those doors. And I cherish all the great memories we shared working on social justice issues. And even though we saw far less of each other, over the years after you moved across the Bay, we’d occasionally run into each other at such venues as Sweet Honey and the Rock concerts. I feel privileged to have known Liz and I hold you in my heart. Lucky man to have such a special woman as your life partner! Blessed Be.
