Elizabeth Sheldon

Elizabeth Anne Sheldon (70) bravely battled cancer until her remarkable journey came to an end on May 22, 2023. 

Born on May 21, 1953, in Staten Island, New York, to Patricia and William Brunda, Liz was known for her intelligence, rebellious streak, and passion for challenging social norms. She defied convention by becoming a motorcycle mechanic and racer, and a folk musician in the band Sunshine and Silver, paving the way for other like-minded women.

After various ventures, Liz discovered her true calling in IT security. Wearing her signature red "power" blazer, skirts, and scrunchy socks, she excelled in her career and met the love of her life, Gregg. They married and built a cherished home in Henniker, New Hampshire. Liz took a two-decade break from work to collect antiques, mastered herbology, and tended to her thriving garden. She was also a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, foodie, and advocate for those in need.

Liz's life was guided by compassion, as she always extended a helping hand to those facing hardships. Her caring nature touched the lives of many, whether through assisting neighbors or supporting the local food bank. She will be remembered as someone who cherished her family, delighted in culinary delights, offered compassion, and found solace in her garden. Her vibrant spirit and diverse passions will forever inspire those who had the privilege of knowing her.

In accordance with Liz's wishes, her loved ones will privately honor her memory and cherish the special moments they shared with her. Survived by her husband Gregg Sheldon, children Eddie (Amy) Austin, George (Jill) Link, Adam Link, Rebecca (John) Perryman, grandchildren Isabella, Leia, Henry Austin, Mason Link, Maeve, and Aiden Perryman, as well as siblings Veronica and Paul (Lizzy).
