Elizabeth “Liz” Sinkleris (Groom), 92, passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, August 12th, in Riverside.
Born in Burlington, Elizabeth spent most of her life in Riverside with her loving husband, Andy. She took great joy in sharing the sweet stories about their traditional courtship. She had many hobbies that included crocheting, writing poetry, playing music on both her ukulele and organ and penning her autobiography. However, her favorite hobby was spoiling her grandchildren. Whether it was taking them to the store to restock their toy boxes or sending them monthly cards while they were away at college to help replenish their dwindling funds, “Mom Mom” always took pride in watching over her grandbabies.
During her most recent years, Elizabeth enjoyed trips to Red Lobster, watching classic television and indulging in gummy bears. She also continued crocheting for all of the new editions to her wonderful family legacy, which consists of ten grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren with another on the way, who all held a special place in her heart.
Elizabeth was predeceased by her husband, Andrew Sinkleris, her daughter, Elizabeth “Betsy” Sinkleris, her son-in-law, George “Skip” Peacock, Jr., her grandson, Frank Gregory Sinkleris, her sister, Beatrice Dickerson, and her companion, Jim Fauver.
She is survived by her son, Andrew Sinkleris II, and his wife Penny (Eubank), her grandchildren, Andrew Sinkleris III, and his wife Margaret (Wallace), James Sinkleris and his wife Lisa (O’Keefe), Joseph Ringer and his wife Tara (Rendino), Elizabeth (Sinkleris) Hemmons and her husband, Jason, Amanda (Ringer) McCoy and her husband, Kurt, Rachel Peacock, Toby Peacock and his wife Danielle(Doyle), and Jeremy Peacock and his wife, Jamie (Pollard), along with fourteen great-grandchildren.
Relatives and friends may call Saturday from 9-11 a.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, in Riverside, where a service will follow at 11 a.m. Interment at Odd Fellows Cemetery, Burlington.
