Literary Figure. Known as "Lizzie" to her family, she was the model for the character "Beth" in the book "Little Women," penned by her sister, Louisa May Alcott. Described as quiet, gentle, and someone who took pleasure in helping her family and friends, in 1856 she contracted scarlet fever from a poor German family that her mother was caring for, but revived. However, the fever permanently weakened her, and she passed away from a "wasting illness" two years later. (bio by: Abigailworm)
