Elizabeth “Liz” Globus was born on August 24, 1938 in Monterey California and passed away on March 29, 2021 in Santa Cruz, California. She had just weeks before lost her beloved husband of 50 years, Dr. Albert Globus.
She grew up in Sacramento, attending McClatchy High School class of 1956, and then went on to UC Davis and UCLA to finish her undergrad education.

Elizabeth and her husband Al were true humanitarian activists, supporting several causes over many decades in the United States and abroad. She was a multitalented woman, an avid reader, a member of many book clubs and a 30 year member of the Woodland Shakespeare Club. She played nine instruments, was an incredible singer, an excellent gourmet cook, impeccable seamstress and she loved to travel.
