Elizabeth loved all genres’ of music, especially gospel. She loved solo performances and almost any live music. She played traditional African drums, the recorder, and piano and loved to sing. Elizabeth also liked sports, especially tennis. Since she liked to walk, it became her form of exercise.

Elizabeth was great at crossword puzzles and scrabble. From a young age she was good at story-writing.
This enabled her to write the story of her mother’s life story in the book “Queen Mother: the remarkable life story of Rebecca Zirimbuga Musoke”.

Elizabeth leaves her husband of 25 years to cherish her memory. She is survived by her beloved Aunt Damallie; siblings Harriet, Adam, Damallie, Dr. Louise, Dr. Philippa, Wilfred and Rebecca; nieces, nephews and lots of relatives.

    When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.
    When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
