Elisabeth Ann (Rivers) Verrastro; On August 25 we lost the sunshine of our life, Momma Bear to Maddy Goose and Joey Bear, beloved wife of Joe. She fought with all her strength to overcome the odds on her last day on this side of Heaven and now has returned home to her Lord and Savior.
She leaves behind her beautiful family Joe; her husband, Madeline Ann and Joseph Anthony her children. Her Mom and Dad, Lynda and Don Rivers, sisters Katie and Danielle. Joe’s parents Joe and Lori Verrastro. His brothers and sister, Jason, Justin, Kris and Katie (Mojica). She also leaves many other family and friends who will miss her presence.
Courageously she ventured into life with a fearless hope she would conquer all the challenges that she faced. From the Radio Station, to the Arena, to the Theater she inspired many with her accomplishments. Always taking the time to make those around her feel valued and appreciated. She had a knack, that not many do, to remember and touch the lives around her in a memorable way. She left an impression on the hearts of so many that will not fade away.
While we will miss her presence, her spirit lives on in each life she touched. She will always be close by with a touch, reminding us of her caring, loving soul. We plan to celebrate that in a way that will honor her memory and influence. We will be announcing a Celebration of Life, Elisabeth’s Gala, at a future date.
Please keep Joe, Maddy and Joey close to your heart and lift them up often. Also, please keep the Rivers and Verrastro families in your thoughts and prayers. Until we meet again!
