Lizabeth Turner Gloor, age 57, of Berea, Ohio, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on September 29, 2022, at the University Hospital Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio.
Passionate, infinitely curious, talented, kind, authentic, funny, a sensitive soul. Liz was all these and so much more. She put her whole self into everything she did whether it was being a mom, a daughter, a sister, or a friend.
Liz was most proud of her daughter Olivia. She loved to hear her daughter sing, to see her smile and to watch as she grew into a strong, smart woman. As a mother, she was a rock and wanted only for her daughter to feel seen, heard and supported.
To her siblings, Liz was a stubborn and spirited sister. They loved her laugh, amazing sense of humor and quick wit; that she was so very talented, yet so very humble. They’ll miss her questions, her “hair-on-fire, need-to-get-it-done-now” attitude and that she made the “best lasagna ever.”
To her friends, Liz was Liz. A “quick” phone call was an hour. It took weeks to schedule a get-together, and she was always late – really late. Liz couldn’t (or wouldn’t) drive over bridges nor own a car with an automatic transmission. They were called “Li-ssues,” but they simply made her Liz. Her friends loved her for them, and for her devotion, her humor, her sense of awe with the world and zest for life. Their lives will lack a little something now.
Liz was an accomplished writer. As an advertising copywriter she honed her skills through long hours, tight deadlines, and high expectations. She shared her talent with high profile agencies in the Cleveland-Akron area as a senior writer working on well-known brands like John Deere, Cedar Point and Cub Cadet, to name a few.
She had the awe of a child and the mind of a wizard. Bits of information became pieces of a puzzle Liz was determined to complete. Question after question, idea after idea, Liz uncovered the pieces and put them together flawlessly. Her words helped elevate some of the largest brands in the world and her keen sense of strategy made her an invaluable member of any team.
Liz loved the beach and the beauty of Christmas. She was as happy on the couch with her dog Lenny and Netflix as she was out discovering new things in the world. She will be missed by everyone she touched throughout her life.
Left to cherish Liz’s memory are her daughter Olivia, and siblings Linda, Lea (Bob), Lorraine (Gil), Lisa (Bill), George Thomas (Dawn), and Michael Joseph; nieces and nephews Grace, Pete (Anna), Katie (Shawn), Anthony (Kara), Maggie (Sam), Bill (Rini), Natalie, Griffin, and great-nieces and nephews Lily and Lucy, Logan and Harper, Henry and George, Timo and his sister on the way; Olivia’s father Don, extended family, many wonderful friends, and Lenny her beloved Wiener dog. Liz was predeceased by her parents.
A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 50 E Bagley Rd., Berea, OH, on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at 11:00 am with fellowship and refreshments immediately afterwards in Harkness Hall adjacent to the Church.
