I was so saddened to hear of Elizabeth's passing. She was my Diabetes Educator at Hartford Health Care / Backus Hospital, and always greeted me with a warm hug and a smile. It was because of Liz Sibicky that I started taking my health more seriously and got better control of my diabetes.

She was such a wonderful person and I miss her so much. I miss her smile, her hugs, and her loving rapport with me. I'll do my best to make you proud, Liz, and take better care of myself and my diabetes. I proudly made a donation to Make-A-Wish in your name.

May all the angels of heaven rejoice at your entrance and may all the Ancestors pay you homage as you join their ranks.

Ah Lizzie. I can still hear you saying “You’re full of shit Kaseta!”. I can still see the look on your face when your dad let me drive the Cadillac but not you. You always made us smile and laugh. Your joy was infectious. Our mother hen. Our guardian angel. I’ll continue to pray for you and your entire family and I trust that you will continue to help and guide us. I can’t wait to see you soon in Heaven. There we’ll catch up on old times and have the biggest and best reunion ever! I love you Lizzie.

No words can console the loss of this exceptional woman. Liz always shined like the star she was. Her smile was genuine and her humor infectious. She truly cared about her patients. She had the knowledge, the skills and know how to take care of their needs.... emotional and physical. And she was passionate with her causes. Didn’t mince her words. I have had a long term professional relationship with Liz . And that turned into a friendship. She was always available and there to help and advise. When I think of Liz , I shall always remember her love for humanity and the tools she developed through a lot of hard work to make everyone feel better. She will always be one of the most highly respected people in my life. I know she will be watching over her much loved family from up above.

David, Brandy and Family,
Frank and I are so very sorry for your loss. We only just heard of Liz's passing today, after talking to Heather, who saw Brandy's FB Post. Liz was always so kind and welcoming to Frank and I every time we saw her at various parties, a kindness that will not be forgotten. She was a wonderful woman and will be greatly missed.

Liz was a treasured friend and coworker. I have only memories of love and caring of Liz. After I retired, she became my my primary doctor. She gave me a hug last time I saw her and said we see each other again.

My heart is hurting but I am consoled knowing that she is with God and God is taking of her as Liz took care of me and all her family, friends, and patients. God Bless You Liz.
Love, Laura
