Elizabeth was born in Santa Barbara to Mary Elizabeth Reddin and Bowen Franklin Reddin Jr. (deceased). She graduated from Dos Pueblos High School class of 1978 where she was Drill Team captain (leading them to a National Championship win), and a member of the swim team. She later attended City College. She was an accountant at Dripcut and was controller at Moss Motors of Goleta.

Elizabeth Joy was a beautiful soul—childlike, gentle and playful. She loved animals, flowers and little kids, and delighted in her 5 nieces Naomi, Robin, Angela, Genette and Mackenzie, and 3 nephews, Eric, Caleb and Ethan, and 3 great nieces and 9 great nephews.

Lizzie was stylish and artistic, and enjoyed decorating and party planning. She always had music playing and danced to the latest hits. She was fun loving, had a generous laugh and a great sense of humor. Empathetic, compassionate and deeply spiritual, her real gift was her sensitivity to others. She was full of wonder for the natural world and had a lifelong curiosity in science and medicine. She would be pleased that her organ donation through OneLegacy has benefitted others and eased their suffering. Our heartfelt thanks go to the excellent team of S-ICU nurses and doctors at Cottage Hospital.

She is survived by her mother, Mary, and 3 sisters, Sharon Iverson and husband Ron, Rebecca Reddin and Valerie Davis; her three brothers, Roy Reddin and wife Karen, Thomas Reddin and wife Judy, and Bowen Reddin.

Donations may be made in her memory to Mainstream of Phoenix House and the Humane Society.
