Elizabeth (Liz) Ryan Linsky; Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Mother-In-Law, Grandmother, Aunt, and friend, found peace and rest on September 10, 2017.

Liz was born November 14, 1941, and raised in Fresno, California. She was the daughter of Bill and Charlotte Ryan, and sister of Margaret Ryan.

She graduated from Fresno State University, and became a Registered Nurse. After relocating from Fresno to San Francisco, she decided to move East with friends in 1965.

In 1969, Liz met Martin (Marty) James Linsky in the Georgetown section of Washington D.C. They married later that year, and will remain through eternity the love of each other's lives.

In 1970, they welcomed their first son Martin (Marty) William, and in 1974 their second son William (Bill) Ryan. Liz taught her sons the core value that would become the foundation of their youth; the acceptance and tolerance of all people. Her home was always open to their friends, who came from many different backgrounds and walks of life. They were always welcome in The Linsky house.

Liz had an amazing collection of loyal friends; many since childhood growing up in Fresno, others who she met along her journey from San Francisco to Washington to Alexandria, Virginia, where she and her husband raised their family.

She had three wonderful Sisters in Law, seven nieces and nephews, and several children of close friends that were family to her.

In 2002, Liz gained a Daughter-In-Law, Shelly McMinn Linsky. She always considered Shelly her daughter, and their bond remained special throughout Liz's journey through life.

Her Pride and Joy, Grandchildren Martin (Marty) James and Aubrey Anne, came along in 2003 and 2006. Liz loved being a Grandmother, and took great pleasure in watching them grow and develop. In turn, they both loved their Grandmother, who was known to them simply as Liz.

Liz loved to travel both home and abroad, with annual trips to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, as well as trips to California, Europe, and Mexico. She enjoyed talking politics and current events with family and friends, was well read and well informed, and loved her cats Teddy, Pouncer, and Tuxy.

Liz Linsky will be missed, but she will never be forgotten.

Rest in Peace Liz.

Memorial Services will be held at Arlington National Cemetery and the Ft. Myer Officers Club at a later date to be announced.

In lieu of flowers, The Family asks for donations to be made in Liz's honor to The Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area, 8830 Cameron St. #201, Silver Spring, MD 20910.
