Elizabeth Everett Rose Loveridge was born on November 2, 1964 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is the oldest of four dynamic children born to John Mark Rose and Josephine Alma Freed. A life-long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Liza passed away early Thursday morning, February 4, 2021 after a courageous, two-year-long battle with cancer, when she far outlasted all professional predictions.

Liza married the love of her life, Thomas John Loveridge, on June 14, 1996. On her wedding day to Tom, Liza gained a new Loveridge family that she loved. Liza and Tom subsequently had two amazing children of their own, Tommy and Josie Loveridge. Liza and Tom had a great life together. They loved to celebrate Halloween and Christmas, go to movies, travel the world, and especially vacation at Disneyland with their children. Several years after Tom's passing in 2012, Liza was blessed to find romance again with Vern Hopkinson to whom she was engaged. Vern passed shortly after their engagement in 2017.

Liza graduated from East High School as part of the Class of 1982. She attended Utah State University graduating cum laude in 1988. She was a member of the Mortar Board, Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society, and Order of Omega National Honor Society at the time of her graduation. While at USU she joined Alpha Chi Omega and enjoyed the friendships made there throughout her life.

Never a fan of Cache Valley’s cold winters, Liza's infectious sense of humor was made manifest when she moved to Madison, Wisconsin to continue her education at the University of Wisconsin Law School. She flourished in freezing Madison making life-long friends, graduating with her JD in 1991 on the Dean's List and was admitted to both the Utah State and Wisconsin State Bars. After graduation, Liza returned to Salt Lake City where she began her practice in bankruptcy law. Liza was appointed a member of the U.S. Chapter 7 trustee panel in 1998. She served on many boards, wrote and presented at several bankruptcy conferences, and was recognized by Utah Business Magazine as "Utah Legal Elite." A partner in the law firms of Strong & Hanni P.C. and Woodbury Kesler, Liza was invigorated intellectually, personally and emotionally by the partners, judges, colleagues and clients with whom she worked.

Liza, at an early age, cultivated an enthusiasm for travel and exploration. She relished live musical performances and frequently discovered the next Broadway hit. Nevertheless, she was happiest at her family ranch in the High Uintas. All were welcome in Liza’s home and her gift for baking, cooking and delightful gatherings was enjoyed by those blessed to know her. She was a kind, funny and loyal friend. Liza's greatest passion was and is centered around her family.

Liza is survived by her children, Thomas and Josephine, her faithful father, Mark Rose, siblings Dade (Lisa) Rose, Mark Everett (Sue) Rose, Kristin (Alec) McGinn, 15 nieces and nephews and her extended family to whom she was devoted and loved fiercely. She is predeceased by her extraordinary mother, Jo, her dear Vern, and her beloved Tom.

Funeral Services will be held Saturday, February 13, 2021 at noon at the Arlington Hills Ward Building, 1300 East Fairfax Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah.

No viewing or reception will be held. Funeral services provided by Larkin Mortuary.

Liza and her family wish to thank Liza’s many friends, neighbors, family members, partners, medical care personnel, church members and others who have touched her life for good.

Liza's life goes on beyond the veil! Liza was, and still is, a treasured friend and colleague. Her laugh and smile are infectious. Whenever we think of her we see her smiling, and we can still hear her laugh. She found joy in everything life had to offer, from her wonderful children, siblings, and father - all of whom she loves so dearly - to her passion for work, solving problems, and helping others. My wife and I feel privileged to have known Liza and to have been included in her circle of friends. We continue to pray that each of her children, and that all of her family and friends, may be comforted during this difficult time. May God bless each one of you.

Liza was a vivacious, wonderful, outgoing woman with whom I had the pleasure to practice law. This is a tremendous loss. My deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to her family.

I'm heartbroken to hear of Liza's passing, but grateful that your family was able to have her in your midst for longer than expected, as she fought hard against a horrible disease. Liza was simply the best! I have so many memories going back to elementary school, through study abroad with her in London and in recent years as our high school friends gathered. I hope you will find comfort as you get together with loved ones and remember Liza's remarkable life and legacy.
