She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Dr. George Edward Mayo III.

We would like to thank the medical professionals and Transitions Kids who cared for Elizabeth and her family.

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Psalm 139:13-16
