Elizabeth Ella (Hanna) Weiss was born November 11, 1920 in her grandparents' home in Livonia, New York. Her parents were George Eugene Hanna and Ruth Lucretia Becker. She grew up with her brother, Sherwood Becker Hanna (Thelma) on the family farm in Lakeville, New York. She kept busy skating and sledding in winter, swimming in Conesus Lake, singing in a glee club, playing saxophone in the band and participating in 4H. Elizabeth graduated from the University of Rochester with a B.S. in Nursing. She worked at Strong Memorial Hospital and as a visiting nurse until she met Michael Weiss. They were married March 25, 1950 in Lakeville, NY. After living in Schenectady, NY for a time, they moved to Lyndhurst, OH. For several years Elizabeth worked part time as a nurse at UH of Cleveland and then volunteered at Booth Memorial Hospital. She sang in the church choir and was a member of the Lydia church women's group. She cooked, sewed clothes for her children, knitted sweaters, hats and mittens, planted beautiful flower gardens and prepared wonderful Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations for the family. Some of the most memorable times were family camping trips each summer to visit family and national parks and historic sites around the country. She and Michael were frequent spectators at children's and grandchildren's sporting events and concerts.
