3-9-1949 – 4-5-2012
Liz Simon, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, traveling companion, and drinking buddy passed away peacefully at home on Thursday April 5, 2012 surrounded by family, friends, and our dogs.
Liz attended North Central High School, graduating in 1967. She went to college at Wittenberg University, and Herron Art School at Butler University from which she graduated, where she was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority. She was an art teacher in Marion County for nine years, originally at Arsenal Technical High School and later at Robey Elementary School in Clermont Indiana. She obtained a Master's degree in teaching from IUPUI.
She gave up teaching to pursue a career in real estate. Self employed for more than 25 years, she was a certified Real Estate Appraiser and Broker who started her own real estate company, Simon and Associates.
Liz was very active in the community. She sat on the Indy Fringe Board since its inception and was also on the Sargent Road Association Board. She was previously a past president and board member of the Mud Creek Players Theater and helped start their very popular Children’s Theater Summer Camp.
Not only a self starter, she was intelligent, supportive, artistic, and above all fun-loving. An avid traveler who instilled a sense of curiosity and adventure to all the people she met on life’s journey. Liz was a true animal lover with a sense of compassion for anything on four legs (or two for that matter).
She will be sorely missed by all those who knew her.
