Elizabeth (Lizzie) Somers passed away on August 24, 2020 from complications from a stroke. She was surrounded by her parents, her brother and her sweet dog Jade. Although she was 26 years old, Lizzie led a well traveled, adventurous life in the short time she was with us.
Lizzie had traveled with family or alone to Australia, Europe, Africa, Argentina, Peru and around much of the United States. At 17, when she graduated from high school, she chose to go to McGill University in Montreal. Going to college so far from home was a formative part of Lizzie’s adult life, and she developed a network of great friends from around the world. There she expanded her interest in independent music, frequented many small venues and got to know many artists. At McGill, she was studying history and jumped at the opportunity to spend the summer of 2012 in Florence. There she studied Italian Film and the language.
