Liz was born on October 17, 1964 in Morgan City, the daughter of Lovence J. “L.J.” Vicknair Jr. and Joyce Lee Theriot Vicknair.
Liz was a very proud patriot who served her country proudly in the United States Air Force retiring as a Captain. She was an avid football fan who loved the New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers. She loved to go shopping and was known to buy things from QVC and Home Shopping Network from time to time, when she could find a good deal. She mainly loved shopping because it allowed her to find gifts to give her family and friends. She was a non-stop gift giver, always wanting to buy things and do small acts to make people happy. Her grandchildren were her life, she was always there for them and cherished every moment she was able to spend with them. She was a big collector of all things Betty Boop. Liz truly loved to dance, especially to her favorite song, Browed Eyed Girl. She always enjoyed life and was truly a big kid with a big heart for her family.

Smith; longtime companion, Steve Douck of Morgan City; two sisters, Shelley LeBlanc of Morgan City and Joy Lynn Dismer and husband Col.
