As a new employee at the Jewish home with the task of recruiting residents for research. I can say I wouldn’t have been able to do my job without Ms. Carroll. She always introduced me to the residents. I will always remember having lunch with Ms. Carroll. She would always make laugh or share her wisdom. When I wasn’t sure if I should still attend medical school she told me to fight for my dreams no matter what others say. I am truly grateful and privileged to have met Ms. Carroll. She will always have a special place in my heart.

In an endearing & excited tone she’d always ask “Where’s my Mandy?” when nearby or I paid her a visit. This how she would greet me from when I was a youngster until not too long ago…it always warmed my heart & made me feel special.

Heaven has another angel... God bless her. She was such a loving person. I thank her for raising 2 beautiful daughters that I've become to love like sisters. I thank you for that Ms. Carroll.

I feel so incredibly blessed to have known Elizabeth. She was such a bright light - so full of joy, laughter, kindness, and generosity. She was a resident at the nursing home that I worked for many years but she was so much more than that. She was like a grandparent, a friend, and at times a coworker. We worked together on the resident volunteer committee. She generously gave her time to help others and to raise money for many wonderful charities. It was as a joy to do these volunteer projects with her - she made everything more fun. After my first child was born and I moved to NJ, I did not return to work at the nursing home. Elizabeth continued to keep in touch with me - calling every so often to check in on me and the family to make sure we were ok. I especially knew I would hear from her around holidays which always made me smile. I will miss those calls so much. They really meant the world to me. I love you Elizabeth. I will continue to keep in touch and let you know how the family is doing in my prayers.

One of many of the best times with Elizabeth and there were many both at the Jewish Home and by FaceTime was when she won the Prom Queen of Roseland Dance and the joy on her face and in the crowd when she was crowned and took the Queen of the Prom dance with Lou around the room. From arts and crafts to bingo to painting with Erin in the library. I could keep everyone here all day listing them all. She was a ball. And when she wasn't she had no problem letting ya know. Elizabeth will stay in our hearts always. xoxoxo, randi and kircher.

I work as a musician at the New Jewish Home and knew Elizabeth for more than a year and a half. I would stop by her room on a weekly basis to spend some time, play her a song or just chat, often when her daughter Louise was there. I adored her. No matter how she was feeling she would light up when I stopped by. (I would light up too!) She was genuinely interested in my life, would rejoice in any good news I had, and make sure I would be stopping by to visit any of our mutual friends as I made my rounds. We bonded over our mutual love of Motown, particularly "Heatwave" by Martha and the Vandellas. My life is richer for knowing her. She will be missed. My heart goes out to her devoted daughters and her family.
