Elizabeth was born on Oct. 14, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, to parents, Mabel (Burrington) and Alexander Scott.
On April 20, 1940, Elizabeth married Walter Herrli in Chicago. From this union, four daughters were born, June, Betty, Nancy and Donna. Elizabeth was a wonderful homemaker and loved to cook and care for her family. She enjoyed being on the lake, swimming, fishing, gardening, crocheting, knitting, raising chickens and her beloved Pomeranian dogs. Elizabeth will be deeply missed and always remembered for her caring personality, generous spirit and the love she had for others.
In 1978, Walt and Elizabeth retired to Nicaboyne Lake in the Webb Lake area.
Elizabeth's faith was very important to her; she was a born again Christian and a devoted member of Spooner Baptist Church. A true prayer warrior, she liked to read and study the Bible and memorize Bible verses, heavily influenced by her mother's strong faith and her love for the Lord.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Walter Herrli; sister, Evelyn Hajek; and sons-in-law, Albert Ashworth and Thomas Faudree III.
She is survived by her children, June Faudree, Betty (Jim) Murawski, Nancy Barkdoll and Donna (Rex) Morelock; grandchildren, Paul (Dulcie) Ashworth, Margaret (Ken) Strotheide, Jim (MaryBeth) Murawski, Brian (Jolee) Murawski, Mary (Nels) Gebben, Karen Nielsen, Joan (Hans) Miller, Amy Anderson, Dixie (Kyle) Luedtke and Niki Kiriakopoulos; 25 great-grandchildren; 10 great-great-grandchildren; nephew, Edward (Billie) Hajek; and many relatives and friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to Regional Hospice in Spooner, Crossroads Christian Church at A&H;, Webster, and Spooner Baptist Church.
