My brother started dating Liz when I was 10years old and she has been like a sister to me ever since. I grew up watching her be a hard worker, an amazing daughter in law to my parents, great wife and mostly an extraordinary mother. She helped shape me into the mother I am today as I was constantly asking her for parenting advice. I love her kids like my own and I was so blessed to have had her as my sister. When you and Dennis chose me to be Christine’s godmother I made a promise to you and I will honor that promise and watch over all of your kids as I know you would have done for me... Liz you will be missed more then you could ever know...Rest In Peace ❤️

What to say about the somewhat shy 25 year old lady who came into our lives 36 years ago. Liz helped Dennis make his career choice in law enforcement and stood behind him during some turbulent times and shift changes and always had a meal waiting for him at home while she held down the fort with their children.

Ms. Schlosser was certainly loved by her Passaic County family. I offer my sincere condolences to her husband, Dennis, and her children: Erin, Kelly, Christine and Michael. She is gone too soon. I am sorry for your loss.

Thank you all for your love and support. My mom was the best, and for those of you that knew her, you saw how hard she worked, how much she loved, and how selfless she was towards her family and her friends. She will be missed and Christine, Erin, Michael and I were the luckiest kids to grow up with a mom like, “Zil.” As much as it hurts, we know you are still with us and you will always be a part of everything we do.

Perfectly said Kel..there wasn’t a dry eye in the church after you had the strength to speak from your heart. A beautiful tribute to a strong woman by her strong children that she will continue to give strength to everyday of your lives❤️
