Elizabeth was a renaissance woman. She was fascinated by nature and the different people in her world. She refused to let difficult circumstances dictate her life. Instead she ordered her life according to her own creative principles. She had an innate way of making her environment more beautiful and a style that was completely her own. Her enthusiasm for art and her way of seeing was contagious. Jesus was the cornerstone of Elizabeth’s life and her faith inspires us always.
She was constantly aware of the feelings of her family and friends, without them having to say a thing. Elizabeth’s devotion to those she loved demanded that she give all her attention to the person in front of her. She shared the pain and successes of her community. Elizabeth was the most selfless person we know and she was a connector, always introducing new friends.
Elizabeth constantly created art, and was a frequent contributor to the East Austin Studio Tour. She communicated through her art and her faith. She sang and loved all types of music.
The cardinal is her spirit animal.
She will be deeply missed by her parents, Mimi and Bob Lodowski of Fredericksburg; her sister Sarah, husband Ben Kitchen and their son Benjamin of Austin; brother, Matthew, wife, Dagny and daughter Aubrey of Houston; brother, David, wife, Kerrie and children Thomas and Madeline of Cleveland, Ohio; and her love, Ryan Vaughn of Austin, Texas.
Elizabeth was born September 6, 1980, in Houston, TX. She attended River Oaks Baptist School, Episcopal High School, Texas A&M and CU Boulder. She was also a camper and counselor at Laity Lodge Youth Camp.
