Elizabeth Hendricks

September 24, 1960 - August 10, 2011

FORT EDWARD - Elizabeth Hendricks, 50, joined her Father and her Creator in heaven on August 10, 2011. Liz passed peacefully in her cherished home with beloved sons Parker and Blake.

Liz was born September 24, 1960, in the elevator at Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown. She was the third of four children of John and Gloria Hendricks of Milford.

After high school graduation in 1978, Liz graduated from Prospect Hall College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She was hired by Eastern Airlines and traveled throughout the country. She later moved to New Orleans with Southwest Airlines and then lived for many years in Frankfurt, Germany, traveling from Switzerland, Austria and Holland.

Liz enjoyed her career in aviation and travel and also enjoyed fine art, popular music, languages and fine cuisine. Liz also was a very gifted artist and craftsman and her home and family's homes were decorated with her beautiful creations.

Liz and her sons settled in Fort Edward in 2005 as they found it a wonderful place to root their lives. Parker, 18, just recently graduated from high school and Blake, 16, will be a senior this year.

In addition to her two boys, Liz is survived by her mother, Gloria Hendricks in Milford; brother John and his sons, Jonathan and Dane, in Coconut Creek, Florida; sister Carole and her children, Dustin and Liza and grandson, Luka, in Cooperstown; Tom and Polly and their children, TJ, Tatum and Dutch, in Fairport; Uncle Walter Gladstone of Andes; Aunt Carole and Eliot Loeb of Saratoga; and Uncle Paul Watson of Bennington, Vermont.

Contributions to her memory will graciously be accepted to the Parker & Blake Protzman Student Fund at Key Bank, 154 Quaker Road, Queensbury, NY  12804.

A Memorial Service will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 20, 2011, at The Evangelical Lutheran Church, 4636 State Highway 28, Hartwick Seminary, with the Rev'd Paul R. Messner, pastor, officiating. A reception afterward will be held at the Hendricks Home in Milford for all friends and family.

As Liz leaves this world, she reminds us to "have a good ride!"
