October 14, 1917 - April 8, 2020

Elizabeth A. Herrli, age 102, of Webb Lake, WI, passed away peacefully in her sleep on the early morning of April 8, 2020, at the Maple Ridge Care Center in Spooner, WI.

Elizabeth was born on October 14, 1917, in Chicago, IL, to parents, Mabel (Burrington) and Alexander Scott.

On April 20, 1940, Elizabeth married Walter Herrli in Chicago, IL. From this union, four daughters were born: June, Betty, Nancy and Donna. Elizabeth was a wonderful homemaker and loved to cook and care for her family. She enjoyed being on the lake, swimming, fishing, gardening, crocheting, knitting, raising chickens, and her beloved Pomeranian dogs. Elizabeth will be deeply missed and always remembered for her caring personality, generous spirit and the love she had for others.

In 1978, Walt and Elizabeth retired to Nicaboyne Lake in the Webb Lake area.

Elizabeth's faith was very important to her, she was a born again christian and a devoted member of Spooner Baptist Church. A true prayer warrior, she liked to read and study the Bible and memorize Bible verses, heavily influenced by her mother's strong faith and her love for the Lord.
