Mrs. Stricker was assistant sales manager for General Motors, Chevrolet Division until her retirement. Elizabeth was a sports fan and an avid Saints fan and enjoyed bowling and watching golf, ice skating and dancing on television.

She enjoyed all aspects of Mardi Gras from being in several krewe courts to Jim’s direct participation in Pete Fountain’s Half-Fast Walking Club and her auxiliary wives’ club. A long time member of Chateau County Club, Mrs. Sticker was active in the Jane Austin society and garden club activities. Dancing was a favorite pastime including Cajun, Jamaica and ballroom, until illness prevented her active participation. Friends and family attended memorial services held at Leitz-Egan Funeral Home.
