Lizzie Rice was born March 6, 1950 in Long Branch, NJ daughter of Eva Mae and Bishop Brown. She attended elementary school in Cliffwood and graduated high school from Keyport High. Not long after she went on to start her successful working career at Shell Oil, and after Dana Transport. In 1978 Lizzie married Mark Rice and from that union they had one daughter Halicia, and three grandchildren Ishmael, Sarai and Honor, and son in law Steven.
Besides being a devoted wife and mother, Lizzie was a hard working woman who loved to spend time with family and friends. Lizzie had several close friends with whom she loved like sisters and brothers. She had an amazingly bright and fun personality. Her laugh and smile were contagious. She always enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. Every week she made it a habit to spend large amounts of time with her daughter, son in law and the grandchildren. She touched many lives with her warm personality and gift of knowledge.
Lizzie is predeceased by her mother and father (Eva Mae and Bishop Brown), brothers (Johnnie B. Brown and Walter Brown) and her husband of 30 years Mark Rice. She leaves behind to mourn her daughter Halicia Brown (Steven), grandson Ishmael, granddaughters Sarai and Honor. Also sisters Annie Jackson of Newark NJ, Betty Jean Jackson Brown of Keyport, NJ and Dorothy Brown of Gibsontown, FLA. Lizzie also leaves behind a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
