Elizabeth Francis (Liz) – Secretary


Family Stats: Married to John Francis for 29+ years. We have 2 sons, Jake (27) and Tony (24), Dali the dog (15), Steve the corn snake (12) and a  multitude of fishes whose names are secret, but I think it is Bob.

How long have you lived in this community? 11 years

What field or industry do you work? I currently work in IT in the soft drink industry, but the bulk of my career has been as a chemist in coatings and specialty chemical manufacturing.

One thing on your “bucket list”: Be a grandmother.

What’s your favorite comfort food? Cheese and smoked fish.

If you could grow or raise anything at all what would it be? Kale, lettuce and figs

In 5 words or less, why do you work to make the co-op a reality? Community, Wellness Education for Everyone

Your signature dish and how did you learn to make it: Italian Wedding Soup.  I learned to make this from my mother, who learned from my grandmother. The best part is spending time with the family rolling all those tiny meatballs.  

One of the first things you’re going to buy when the co-op opens: “Grab and Go Food” from the hot/cold bar! Now that we are empty nesters, I can’t wait to be able to zip out to The Community Market and pick up delicious healthy local foods for meals and snacks from The Community Market.
