It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Elizabeth M. Stetson on Sunday, February 4th at Apple Rehab in Rocky Hill. She was born on May 29, 1924 in Meriden and was the daughter of the late Xavier and Charlotte LaComb. She was predeceased by her husband, Herbert Edward Stetson. Elizabeth will be remembered for her kindness and enthusiasm for life. She found immense solace in her faith and especially loved bingo, shopping and going out to lunch, all of which she enjoyed until the end of her life. She loved to crochet and share the gifts of her blankets with everyone around her, including her loved ones, children in shelters and hospitals, and families christening their babies in church. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
