Also known as: Liz

After leaving Carisbrooke Grammar School, Liz took a job working as a Tax Officer for the Inland Revenue at it's offices in Newport, Isle of Wight.

She was Godmother to her neice Claire Louise Knibbs.

After her divorce, Liz moved to live with her grandmother, Lily Nash, in Basingstoke. Very tragically, she committed suicide at Christmas 1974 after a period of serious depression.

Liz's body was cremated and her ashes were placed in her grandparents' (George and Evelyn Knibbs) grave at Section G No. 626, Worting Cemetery, Basingstoke. Her name was added to the headstone and her mum and dad provided a marble cherub in remembrance.


From the Isle of Wight County Press, 11 January, 1975:
SHELDON e. J. (Mrs.) - Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Knibbs of 11 Avondale Road, Newport, and family wish to thank all relatives and kind friends for letters and cards of synpathy; also the beautiful floral tributes in the tragic loss of their daughter Elizabeth (Liz), Safely in God's keeping.


Our gratitude goes to the members and volunteers at Find A Grave web site for recording the details, in memory of Liz.
