Elizabeth Emily Sinkleris

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.

  3. Donna (Bintliff) Reil says:

    To Andy and Family, I want to send my deepest sympathy and prayers to the family and to let you know I got to know Liz from when she was there to help my mother out (Dot Bintliff), Liz was always there for my mom, she called her everyday to check on her and see how she was doing etc. Liz was a good friend to my mother and then became a friend to me. Whenever I visited NJ to see my mom, I would always go see Liz, talk to her on the phone and she was such a pleasant person. I know she loved McDonalds hamburgers.
    Anyway, I will always remember Liz in my heart and hope she is resting in peace!
    Sincerely, Donna (Bintliff) Reil

    Gene and I were saddened to hear about Mrs. S…… she always had a very special place in our hearts…. I still remember the first time I met her when Betsy took me home to meet her parents. She was warm and funny, and immediately began feeding me ! I Loved to sit at her kitchen table to talk and eat….. and as a teen, even sometimes hung out with her there when Betsy wasn’t home. RIP Mrs. S……
