Elizabeth was born in South Amboy and grew up in Cliffwood Beach. “Beth” as her family and friends fondly referred to her had a love for Barbara Streisand, Josh Groban, the Hallmark channel and anything she could clog up the DVR with.

She was predeceased by her parents Joseph Lovero and Ethel (Punko) Lovero and a brother William Lovero. She is also predeceased by her first husband, Daniel Natarcola.
Elizabeth is survived by her beloved husband William Ryder; children Lisa Ryder of Woodbridge, Daniel Ryder (son of Daniel Natarcola) and his wife Angela of Hazlet, along with her grandchildren Kayla, Louie, Daniel Jr., Gabriella and Jimmy. She also leaves behind a brother Joseph Lovero and his wife Susan of Arizona; sisters-in-law Ann Scheller, Janie Ryder, Lisa Ryder, Maureen McGuire and brothers-in-law Barry Wiggins, Robert Scheller, John McGuire and William Boyle as well as many nieces and nephews. Elizabeth will be dearly missed, and always in our hearts.
