Liz Webster Brown

Liz was a teacher at Twinsburg City Schools and tutored youth who needed extra help. She continued to share her love of learning and teaching as a Substitute Teacher and as an honorary recruiter for Eastern Michigan University.

She was extremely thoughtful and resourceful. When any one of us would ask her for something for work, home, an event, party...name it... She would often say “I’m going to look in my garage first. Let me get back to you.” Nevertheless, many times asking wasn’t the question. Liz knew what folks would need and she would provide it before it came to mind.
