Went to St. Bernard Grade School. Graduated from St. Mary's, (I think, not sure) She went to Hammel College right out of High School. She married in 1940, during WW2. Married Clarence Francis Curtis and has 4 children: Edward Allen Curtis, Donna Digman (Curtis), Michelle Curtis, Nancy Miho Curtis. She sold Real Estate in the 40's and 50's, when it was mostly men back then. After Clarence died in 1973, she went back to College at The University of Akron. She told me she made 26,000 in 1946, when the average home income was only 2,500. I was young when she told me this, so I could have remembered wrong. But it was good for that year. She was in Business Professional Groups, Toastmasters, Women City Club, Girl Scout Leader, German American Club on Grant St. Upstairs Family Group and the Downstairs, group. She was in the Choir of the German Family Society. Clarence and Elizabeth were great dancers and could even dance on ice skates and rollerskates.

She was a member of St. Peter's, St. Bernard's, they were married in Annunciation Church. She sold Artex, embroidery with paint. She was an artist. She also knitted Sweater, Bonnet and Booties for new Babies.
