Lisabeth “Liz” Ann Eckola, age 62, passed away on Wednesday, December 30, 2020 in Sheboygan Falls.

On March 8, 1980, Liz married the love of her life, James “Jim” Eckola at St. Casimir Catholic Church. They created many wonderful memories during their time together. Before settling in Sheboygan, “the midway point between families”, Liz and Jim enjoyed a nomadic life, traveling all over the United States with Jim’s work crew. They particularly loved their stays in Hawaii and New Orleans. She never recovered when Jim lost his battle with cancer in 2001.
Over the years, Liz was employed with Bemis Manufacturing, Laurie’s Hallmark Store, WHBL- AM station and the Sheboygan Sun Newspaper.
She was an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Sports, politics, talk radio and Christmas.
